Facility Line

The Facility Line is a truely cutting-edge microscope that is incredibly easy to use. The Facility Line combines advanced features, such as high-end confocal and superresolution imaging, Adaptive Illumination (DyMIN, RESCue, MINFIELD), easy3D STED, confocal & STED autofocus, spectral Rainbow Detection, and full autoalignment.

Our new software was designed from scratch to furnish a user interface that allows beginners to intuitively arrive at a top-notch STED image within three clicks, while it triggers a steep learning curve and allows expert users full control over the instrument. The unprecedented workflow outshines everything you have seen before.
