the Dutch microscopy company
Confocal.nl is aiming to innovate the microscopy industry with our plug-and-play feature confocal microscopes including the re-scan invention (Re-scan Confocal Microscope). Our new RCM-microscope has an improved resolution and strongly improved sensitivity as compared to most confocal microscopes. It will be available as a highly affordable, customised device, which is ideal for labs with specific interests, or as an upgrade for existing wide-field fluorescence microscopes. Our goal is an open-architecture system that can be customised at need, and is platform- and software independent.
The RCM is a standard confocal microscope extended with a re-scan detection unit. Lateral resolution of 170nm can be achieved at any pinhole diameter.
The first model - RCM-Visible - is now ready for ordering, featuring up to four colour confocal detection in the visible range with a 1 FPS live speed.
