Quorum WaveFX Spinning Disk Confocal

Quorum's WaveFX confocal system is a laser-based system using an optimized Nipkow Spinning Disc Technology capable of acquiring confocal images at video rates.  This innovative technology significantly reduces photo-bleaching and photo-toxicity, which makes it ideal for studying live cell activity in an undisturbed environment.
