With the RCM2 you will improve your microscope experience

Obtain an even larger field of view and a brighter image

The second Re-scan Confocal Microscope, the RCM2 lays it focus on getting brigther images all while keeping the required laserpower very low. The RCM2 uses the same bi-directional scanning and allows for a recording speed of 2 frames per second at a resolution of 512×512 pixels.

Because of it’s optics, the RCM2 is suitable for super-resolution imaging with high numerical aperture objectives in the low magnification range. The numerical aperture objective is the ability of the lens to gather light at a fixed distance from the object on view. A lower magnification with a higher numerical aperture allows for a bigger field of view (FOV) and also brigther images. With the RCM2. the numerical aperture of the objectives you use, is even able to get as high as 40x 1.4 and still produce a high resolution image. This can all be achieved all the while using even lower laser power. For example, the RCM2 has demonstrated imaging at 10 nano-watt excitation power!

You can also improve the sCMOS cameras. By doing so you are able to sample resolution of low magnification objectives effectively, without having to increase the exposure time. In a regular PMT-based confocal this is not possible to do.

With the RCM2 you are able to capture datasets of 170nm raw resolution over a very large field of view. After deconvolution you are able to capture datasets of 120nm resolution, also over a large field of view. This allows you to capture even more important data of your sample and lets you study fast live-cell dynamics and even perform 4D imaging in optimized conditions. Because the detection efficiency is broadly increased, you are able to aquire high resolution even in low fluorescence conditions, like when detecting single-molecules(smFISH). When using the RCM2 in combination with silicon objectives, you are able to create deep 3D imaging of organoids, zebrafish embryos, or larger live samples.
