Revolution® XD Confocal System

Laser-Based Spinning Disk Confocal Microscopy System

Andor Revolution® XD spinning disk laser microscopy system provides the framework for the range of laser-illuminated microscopy solutions, including spinning disk confocal, TIRF, photo-bleach, activation and ablation modalities. Our laser spinning disk, live cell confocal instruments, illustrated here, combine Andor’s award winning iXon3 EMCCD cameras, FRAPPA and solid-state laser combiner (ALC) with the renowned Yokogawa CSU-X1 confocal scanner to provide industry-leading speed and sensitivity from a confocal system. System components are tightly coordinated with our flagship multi-dimensional imaging software Andor iQ.


Industry-leading frame rates, optical, mechanical and environmental stability, flexible scanning with fast burst and long-term time-lapse performance contribute to make our confocal systems exceptionally productive. Many leading labs have chosen Andor systems for dedicated applications, while numerous core facilities find our systems flexible enough for the disparate needs of myriad user groups. We will build for any microscope platform, inverted or upright with fixed or scanning stages. Discover what Andor can do for you.
