STEDYCON is a completely new class of nanoscope. It converts your conventional epifluorescence microscope into a powerful multicolor confocal (405nm, 488nm, 561nm, 640nm) and STED (775nm) system! At the same time, it is incredibly compact and can be used by anyone!
Our STEDYCON nanoscope works with all kinds of microscope bodies from all major vendors:
The STEDYCON can be controlled via Abberior Instruments STEDYCON smart control, a web-browser-based graphical user interface. STEDYCON smart control was designed from scratch to provide the highest possible usability completing the overall STEDYCON concept of easy installation, intuitive usage, and maintenance-free operation. Beginners can image with super-resolution within minutes. Smart control runs on every device with a modern web browser like Windows-based PCs, Linux-based PCs, Apple PCs or even tablets.
From zero to STED in no time
Follow along with the incredibly quick installation of a STEDYCON super resolution microscope, uncut. We go from opening the carton to the first super-resolution STED image in under three minutes.
