Dragonfly 200, 300 and 500 microscopes are great instruments and will continue to be supported for many years to come.
By upgrading to deliver capabilities similar to our 600 model, you will increase your productivity and extend the lifetime and usefulness of your system.
The upgrade will enhance the number of scientific techniques and applications that are possible.
The upgrade process typically takes 1-4 days, and our team of Applications Scientists can help get you up to speed on the new capabilities of the upgraded platform.
Borealis Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (B-TIRF) is Andor’s proprietary TIRF module available on Dragonfly 600.
Our new HLE delivers precise, controlled, efficient illumination, and is highly suitable for live-cell imaging and single-molecule imaging. Upgrading to an HLE will enable users to:
Dragonfly 600 has all the necessary tools for single-molecule localisation microscopy (SMLM).
A single plane image through the 3D Super-resolution module delivers axial information over an ~ 1 μm range with a corresponding resolution down to 30 nm axially.
The 3D super-resolution module, is compatible with all imaging modalities, delivering:
This module is ideal for 3D-SMLM applications such as visualizing nuclear pore complexes, the mitochondrial membrane, synapses, the Ultrastructure of Virus Capsid, etc. It brings down the axial resolution to an impressive 30 nm.
SRRF (Super-Resolution Radial Fluctuations) offers a highly effective software-based approach to super-resolution imaging. Our exclusive development, SRRF-Stream+, accelerates processing by delivering real-time super-resolution.
Imaris is the most comprehensive visualization and analysis software for 3D/4D and time-lapse microscopic images. Our AI-powered software enables busy researchers to save time while advancing their research.
Dragonfly 600 performs at a very high level and its ease of use allows researchers to acquire valuable data at speed. The system really excels for applications that are more demanding, such as high resolution live cell imaging.
