Its simplicity lies in a compact patented optical design and laser-free operation, providing ease of retrofit to an existing fluorescence microscope, or an easy addition to most new models currently available. The benefits are an affordable confocal device for your own laboratory, eliminating the need to use core facilities, or if you run a core facility, you can increase your capacity and offer a lower cost solution with a DSD2. The ease of use is such that you will be imaging in no time, with minimal training required.
The simple design of the DSD2 means that it can be mounted to inverted and upright microscopes and fluorescence stereomicroscopes and macroscopes. With three confocal sectioning options, you can choose the optimal setting for your sample or magnification. This makes the DSD2 probably the most versatile confocal device on the market, addressing the broadest range of sample types. With no fixed laser wavelengths to limit you, you have freedom to choose the best wavelength choice for your research. Fixed or live, there is no limit to the possibilities.
