Low phototoxicity, the solution for life cell imaging
The technology of the NL5 was born in the ’80s. New developments such as advances in CMOs cameras have made it possible to take full advantage of the optics of this system, making it fast and sensitive. The NL5 can capture images with speeds that reach up to 25 fps (full frame), much faster than regular point-scanning confocal systems.
The NL5 is easily added onto your existing widefield microscope and is housed in a very compact package. The increased speed is due to the usage of a slit pinhole which allows the scanning of the sample line by line, in contrast to the point by point-scanning of conventional confocal systems. This allows the NL5 to capture images even faster by scanning a full line instead of a single point.
Due to its fast scanning abilities, your valuable samples are exposed to light only for a brief moment. This prevents damaging your samples by phototoxicity, keeping your samples happy under the microscope for a very long time.
Combine the NL5 system with the latest CMOS camera and you will be able to reduce the laser power even further. This is thanks to the high quantum efficiency of modern CMOS cameras. With this combination, you can capture high-resolution images with a high signal-to-noise ratio. All of this, without any sign of photobleaching and phototoxicity.

Due to it fast scanning capabilities
The NL5 can reach up to 240 nm lateral resolution which can be further improved by deconvolution to 170 nm. Due to the single slit pinhole of NL5, you get high contrast images even when going deeper into the sample, which makes this confocal solution ideal for deep 3D imaging.
Due to its high temporal resolution, with NL5 you can quickly capture multicolour 3D images of samples in multi-wellplates to select the most promising ones. NL5 system is a cost-effective solution that you can pair to any research microscope via a C-mount adapter.
Scans your sample with speeds up to 25 FPS
With the NL5 system there is no pinhole crosstalk, greatly increasing contrast and image quality
Due to the high sensitivity detector, NL5 requires low laser power which leads to low phototoxicity and bleaching
The NL5 is easily attachable to any research microscope via the c-mount interface
