Re-Scan Confocal Microscope
- Super-resolution and Confocal upgrade for new and existing microscope installations

Re-Scan Confocal Microscopy (RCM) is a new super-resolution technique from based on standard confocal microscopy extended with an optical (re-scanning) unit that projects the image directly onto a CCD camera. This technology is useful for biological applications, where the combination of high-resolution and high-sensitivity is required. 
  • Cheaper alternative to a confocal microscope
  • Allows upgrade of existing microscopes
  • Improved lateral resolution (170nm at 488nm light)
  • Strongly improved sensitivity
