Higher frame rates and longer confocal observation of living cells
The new Cell Observer SD (spinning disc) from Carl Zeiss enables confocal observation and documentation of experiments with living cells over a long period of time and at high frame rates. This microscope system provides high-end research in the field of the life sciences with new experimental possibilities. Thanks to the full integration of the CSU-X1 confocal scanning unit, manufactured by Yokogawa Electric Corp. (Japan) into the ZEISS Cell Observer SD, it is now possible to offer users a one-stop solution. The Cell Observer SD system and the entire line of incubation accessories from Carl Zeiss enable users to observe living specimens for hours without damaging them. All major incubation parameters such as temperature and CO2 content are saved automatically together with the image data. Convenient control, monitoring and documentation of the experiments are possible thanks to the integration of the CSU-X1 unit into the Carl Zeiss system. All settings are made via the AxioVision software. The software modules can be combined—from simple camera control, multichannel imaging to a special high-speed mode for maximum frame rates to the absolutely simultaneous operation of two cameras. Furthermore, it is possible to integrate other techniques, e.g. FRAP. The Cell Observer SD optimally integrates all of the features of the CSU-X1.
