Crest CARVII™Features and Benefits
Feature Benefit
Multipoint scanning at 1000 scans per second.
  • Real time confocal imaging up to 100 frames per second or more.
  • Use of CCD camera as a detector allows greater sensitivity and better signal-to-noise ratio images.
  • Binocular viewing of confocal image allows easy set up and color viewing.
Low intensity, high frequency scanning. Minimizes photobleaching.
  • Minimizes phototoxicity.
  • Allows long-term recording of biological events.
Mercury/metal halide light source with liquid light guide delivery.
  • Permits full spectrum (360–700 nm) confocal imaging.
  • No light alignment required.
  • Long lamp life (1500 h) and low maintenance cost.
Built-in automated multi-position excitation, dichroic, and emission filter wheels.
  • Permits fast multidimensional confocal imaging of up to five or more fluorescent probes in the same sample.
  • Uses commercially available filter sets.
Adapts to most major models of fluorescence microscopes.
  • Upgrade your fluorescence microscope to a personal confocal system.
Movable spinning disk and field aperture for selective illumination.
  • Permits switching between wide-field and confocal imaging.
  • Allows Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP) experimentation.
Full automation with RS232 control.
  • Operated by many popular imaging software packages such as Crest IPLab™, Metamorph, Image Pro, and others.
  • Allows multidimensional acquisition and analysis including kinetics, co-localization, 1D–5D rendering, ratio imaging, FRAP, and FRET.
