At Confocal.nl, we are committed to improving the imaging experience of researchers worldwide. We have been working hard for over 5 years to develop solutions that meet -and exceed- scientists’ needs. Imaging experiments are growing in complexity and new solutions have to be developed. Recently, we launched our new webshop, which will offer solutions intended for improving your imaging experience. In this blog, we would like to introduce you to our webshop and its latest product: XFold slides.
Our main focus is on live cell imaging experiments, which present extra challenges such as keeping the cells in optimal physiological conditions under the microscope in order to obtain biologically relevant results.
Exposing live samples to laser light frequently leads to phototoxicity, which can alter the results of the experiment. However, at Confocal.nl, we develop easy to use solutions that minimize the laser power to avoid damaging the cells through phototoxicity. This fact, in combination with the extreme sensitivity and high resolution, makes the Re-scan Confocal Microscope (RCM) a perfect solution for scientists involved in live cell imaging.
Step up your live cell imaging game with XFold slides
In our commitment to help scientists to improve their imaging experience, we have found other products that are facilitating live cell imaging experiments even further. Today we are introducing our webshop, where you can find XFold slides, as our first product. This is only the beginning of our webshop, as more products focused on live cell imaging will be added soon.
XFold Imaging microscope slides/cover slips contain advanced nanostructures on the top surface that enhance fluorescence, especially when using laser excitation. This innovative solution enables the study of cellular structures, bio-molecules and viruses at enhanced sensitivity and accuracy. By using XFold, you can generally reduce the laser power by a factor of 100. Therefore, the use of XFold allows us to further decrease phototoxicity and bleaching, and improve the visualization of dim signals.
