A confocal microscope increases the optical resolution and contrast of a standard microscope by eliminating out-of-focus light. This enables you to reconstruct detailed, three-dimensional views of structures.

Renishaw's spectrometers use EasyConfocal™ technology to make them highly confocal, yet efficient and easy to use. This gives you excellent confocal performance without needing a hard-to-align inflexible pinhole. EasyConfocal, coupled with our High Speed Encoded Stage (HSES),enables you to produce high spatial resolution images.

Configure exactly to your needs

You choose the confocal performance for your experiment.

  • High confocal option - e.g. cell volume mapping, or polymer laminate layer profiling
  • Standard confocal option - e.g. most mapping and analysis experiments

These options are simple to configure; just select the setting you want in the software.
