X-Light confocal head is an optical system for illumination, sample out of focus rejection through spinning disk, fluorescence filtering and detection.

X-Light pinhole disks

The 50um disk is available in two different versions: standard spacing and larger spacing.

Standard X-Light spinning disk is the excellent compromise between brightness, confocality and image quality. The version with larger spacing has been designed to enhance even more the image quality and sectioning in thicker specimens thanks to the large reduction of crosstalk between pinholes.
