Comprehensive Course on Fluorescence Microscopy


Yokogawa Spinning Disk Confocal Microscope

The Yokogawa spining disk confocal microscope provides a tradeoff between confocality, light output and speed. It's fast acquistion speeds makes is ideal for live cell applications. The unit contains a disk with many small pinholes and a disc above it that contains microlenses that focus the light on to these pinholes below.
