Scitech has been appointed the authorised distributor for the CrestOptics range of products in Australia and New Zealand.

The mission of the CrestOptics company is the production of state of art confocal instruments using optical and electro-optical technology for scientific and industrial applications with key target areas being fluorescence microscopy and spectroscopy.

In 2012, CrestOptics developed the X-Light Spinning Disk Confocal. The latest generation is the X-Light V2 Confocal Imager. The X-Light V2 Confocal Imager is a full-spectrum spinning disk confocal that attaches to most major models of inverted or upright fluorescence microscopes. It is designed to utilize the latest imaging technologies and is ideal for live cell imaging in biological applications. Add ons are available like the VCS (VideoConfocal Super-resolution) module and it enhances 3D resolution of the standard light microscope. The full system X-Light V2 + VCS can work in three configurations: Widefield mode, Confocal mode and Super-resolution mode.

The X-Light V2 Confocal Imager allows imaging at the performance extremes of a current generation scientific camera, and it provides for objectives used when imaging with a camera with a smaller detector. It takes advantage of laser launches and LED light sources.

The design of the CrestOptics X-Light V2 is unique; it does not use expensive micro-lenses or dual disk strategy implemented in other microlens based spinning disk systems. Instead the X-Light V2 uses a simple and less expensive single disk with a proprietary pinhole pattern and superior 15,000 RPM motor. Scitech boasts an exceptional commitment to providing good value and support with the company’s multi-disciplined imaging and applications team, offering in depth knowledge, advice, installation, training and technical advice and support to its customers.
