The solutions for live cell imaging is a Dutch company which is specialized in the field of microscopy. Their products allow you to get sharper images and a larger field of view, all while maintaining an easy-to-use setup. Do you want to get more out of your samples? has got you covered! Not only do their products offer a higher resolution than conventional confocal microscopes, but they also offer a higher sensitivity. This allows the end-user to study live samples for a longer period of time with much lower phototoxicity.

Exposing your samples to lots of laser light will cause harm to your samples and causes photobleaching of your fluorophores. That is why the clever system of the Re-scanning Confocal Microscope (RCM) of eliminates the need for high laser power. It makes use of multiple laser pointers and a camera as a detector, therefore making it ‘live cell-friendly’.

With the systems, you are now able to create long-term time-lapses of your samples. Combine this with the Super-Resolution you get when using their systems, and you be able to study and capture the development of cells as you have never done before.

RCM Systems

The Re-scan Confocal Microscope (RCM) systems are focused on a very sharp en sensitive image. This system is a super-resolution technique based on a standard confocal, extended with an optical re-scanning unit that projects the image directly on a CCD or sCMOS camera. This allows for a high resolution image of your samples.

Nl Systems

The NL systems of are focused on getting faster images and therefore reducing the phototoxicity of cells. The systems allow you to quickly create multicolour images of any multi-well plate. From these images, you can select the most promising image or even create a 3D image of the entire sample.

Re-scan Confocal Microscope (RCM)

Obtain sharper and more stable images of your samples

The RCM systems of are built of the highest quality materials and are made to last. Not only are they very durable, but also easy to operate.

The focus of the RCM systems is to strongly increase image sensitivity while maintaining the confocal sectioning capability. This sectioning capability allows the user to create stunning 3D images of their samples.

The RCM systems are housing a re-scan technology, which increases the image resolution by 40%, without closing the pinhole. By doing so, more photons are captured and stored on the camera sensor. This makes the signal-to-noise ratio in an RCM-system is four times higher than in standard PMT-based confocal microscopes. This means that there is way less background noise that could pollute the image of your samples. This all results in 170 nm resolution images with an extremely high signal-to-noise ratio.

Combining an RCM system with deconvolution, the resolution is further improved to 120 nm. Deconvolution is a method to even further sharpen the image by removing out-of-focus information using a computer that handles complex calculations.
