Product Overview

Aurox unity is an all-in-one, compact, laser-free confocal microscope system designed for  high resolution confocal images comparable to those of significantly larger and more expensive confocal microscopy systems. Designed for installation and use where samples are generated, unity removes the immediate need for travel to a core microscopy facility.

No lasers means low maintenance, low cost of ownership and no laser safety restrictions, making unity fast and easy to use and accessible to all. unity uses a proven multi-spectral LED light source based on the CoolLED pE-300Ultra. The result is a high performance confocal microscope, that accommodates low photo-toxicity and low photo-bleaching.

A specially designed large format, high performance sCMOS digital detector is used to record both high resolution confocal and wide-field images as well as ultra-large field of view full overview images.

Unity comes complete, with a large format tablet computer, which communicates over a secure private wireless connection. Visionary software presents all experiment set-up and device controls in one colour coded work-flow under a single graphical user interface window. It enables z-stack, time-lapse & multi-channel imaging; Confocal, wide-field & bright-field modes; High /medium sectioning & high signal confocal modes; OME-TIFF format; One-click image export and more.
