The Andor Revolution DSD2 is a simple confocal device delivering extraordinary imaging performance. Its simplicity lies in a compact patented optical design and laser-free operation, providing ease of retrofit to an existing fluorescence microscope, or an easy addition to most new models currently available. The benefits are an affordable confocal device for your own laboratory, eliminating the need to use core facilities, or if you run a core facility, you can increase your capacity and offer a lower cost solution with a DSD2. The ease of use is such that you will be imaging in no time, with minimal training required
