The Crest VCS is an optional video confocal super-resolution add-on for the X-Light V2 spinning disk confocal microscope system offering sunstantial improvement to the axial resolution (as low as 300 nm) of the X-Light V2. With an integrated bypass mode, the X-Light V2 + VCS enables widefield, confocal and enhanced axial, super-resolution imaging on the same system.
