Revolution XDh

Combine full system choice with an upright microscope.

XDh has been designed to allow those who work on an upright microscope benefit from the capabilities available from our full component range. The XDh is suitable for applications such as plant biology research, and in developmental biology models such as c.elegans. Watch the movie showing a 3D maximum intensity projection of Hypocotyl labelled with GFP.
