Andor Revolution provides a framework for Andor Bioimaging Division's laser spinning disk, live cell confocal microscopy solutions, which combine our own award winning iXon3 EMCCD Camera with the renowned Yokogawa CSUX units. Andor has a global distribution agreement with Yokogawa Electric Corporation, to integrate powerful confocal solutions. This partnership brings you unrivalled performance, product understanding and support.Revolution encompasses a range of complimentary components, both hardware and software, that fit seamlessly together creating a complete confocal microscopy solution. A flexible component focus also allows us to provide key pieces of hardware stand-alone.At the core of Revolution systems is Andor iQ, a multi-dimensional imaging software which synchronizes iXon cameras with the CSUX spinning disk confocal and other key hardware components such as Piezo Z100 fast z-stage and our Solid State Laser Combiner, with Acousto-Optical Tunable Filter (AOTF) for rapid laser line selection.Our recommended microscope platform is the Olympus IX81, optimized for live cell imaging, but infinity-corrected microscopes from Leica, Nikon, Till or Zeiss can also be supported.

Andor provides camera-based solutions for low-light live cell microscopy that are primarily based around ultrasensitive and fast EMCCD technology.Andor's cutting-edge Revolution Multi-dimensional Confocal Microscopy solutions are ideal for demanding dynamic live-cell techniques, including: Cell Motility Cytoskeleton Dynamics Embryo Development Fluorescent Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) GFP expression Intracellular Ion Signalling Vesicle Transport
