XDi System

The Revolution XDi is based around an inverted microscope, the most common choice for live cell imaging, ideal for samples such as cultured cells that grow in media and require careful environmental control. Samples can range from something as small as yeast through to a large specimen such as drosophila embryo.

  • Laser-based microscopy system
  • Spinning disk technology
  • Inverted microscope system
  • Precise environmental control
  • Applications include cell motility and optogenetics
