The X-Light V2 is a high-performance confocal imaging system ideally suited for both core imaging facilities and individual research labs. This spinning disk confocal system can seamlessly switch between widefield, confocal, and super-resolution imaging (with the optional LiveSR add-on) on the same microscope.
The X-Light V2 comes standard with a 5-position motorized dichroic wheel, 8-position motorized emission filter wheel, motorized bypass mode, and exchangeable disk boxes. An 8-position motorized excitation wheel is an available option. The X-Light V2 has a large field of view. It works with both EMCCDs for the sensitive, low-light applications as well as larger-format sCMOS cameras for higher resolution imaging. The X-Light V2 is compatible with the new high-power, low-cost LDI laser illuminator.
