CSU10 has revolutionized the world of confocal fluorescence
microscope. A confocal microscopy has enabled z-axis resolution of a thick specimen by employing pin-point illumination and pin-point detection while both the illumination and detection of a conventional optical
microscopy are planar. However, it typically takes around seconds to produce one confocal image using most of the existing confocal microscope; which is too slow to observe movement of living cells in real time.
Now, as fast as 360 frames/sec. scanning speed and high S/N design of Yokogawa Model CSU10 enables direct viewing of clear-cut confocal images of fluorescent specimens in real time at its eyepiece. The confocal
images captured by a CSU10 can be recorded by scientific grade CCD camera as live images. Using CSU10 is as easy as using regular microscopes.
