-{{  :spinning_disk.png|}} The 3i Marianas SDC //spinning disk confocal microscope//​ is a fast imaging system which provides a trade-off between confocality,​ resolution and speed. It is an inverted microscope ideal for live cell applications which require fast acquisition speeds rather than high resolution images. The scanning unit achieves confocality by directing light through a spinning disk with many small pinholes. Images are then acquired with a sensitive EMCCD which allows for very small exposure times but is limited in resolution to 512x512 pixels. The stage is motorized and furthermore equipped with a piezo for Z displacement so fast 4D imaging is possible in multiple stage positions. The system is also equipped with a large cage incubator and a stage top incubator for temperature control and CO2 supply. With this system you can perform optical sectioning of fluorescent samples which are too thick for a widefield system such as the [[zeiss_cell_observer|Zeiss Cell Observer]]. Even though its resolution is not as high as a //​point-scanning confocal system// such as the [[zeiss_lsm_710|Zeiss LSM 710]], it is much faster. You can also check the [[zeiss_cell_observer_sd|Zeiss Cell Observer SD]] if you need a spinning disk with Definite Focus 2 for large tiling or long time-lapse acquisitions. If your personal computer cannot handle all the data you collected, check out the [[big_guy|Big Guy]] or [[colossus|Colossus]]. ​+{{  :yokogawa_sd.png?350|}} The 3i Marianas SDC //spinning disk confocal microscope//​ is a fast imaging system which provides a trade-off between confocality,​ resolution and speed.
