Leica SD AF
Spinning Disc System for Fast Confocal Live Cell Imaging Leica SD AF
The Leica SD AF is an integrated system solution, combining superior Leica optics, Yokogawa spinning disk technology and the versatility of the Leica MM AF software powered by MetaMorph®.
Benefiting from Leica’s breadth of experience in the field of true confocal and widefield imaging, these components are brought together to form a unique solution for high speed confocal sectioningand 3D reconstruction.
Unmatched image quality
Get spectacular image quality even at the 405nm laser line with dedicated Leica optics. The proprietary Leica Advanced Correction System (ACS) technology correct for chromatic aberrations producing equally good images at all wavelengths. It provides CFP live cell imaging and DAPI imaging with superior image quality.
Uncage, photo-activate, photo-switch or bleach are exactly possbile at the same Z-level as seen in the Yokogawa spinning disk image.
Improved confocality and homogenity
Optimized optical adaption of the spinning disk head to Leica microscopes, see more details even at low magnifications.
With its homogeneous illumination the quantification with comparable results throughout the full field of view is possible.
Long term live-cell studies with water immersion objectives
Retain highest resolution and contrast in Z with the water immersion micro dispenser. No loss of contrast when moving into the sample. Aberration free focusing into the sample. No disruption of water film during st age movement.
Flexible system configurations
Perform high speed confocal experiments: on upright, inverted and fixed stage microscopes.
Keep the sample in focus with .
