STEDYCON

STEDYCON

The STEDYCON upgrades your existing widefield system to a confocal microscope and STED nanoscope with a resolution down to 30 nm. All that’s required is a free camera port and a good objective lens. With its super-intuitive user interface, the STEDYCON provides an intelligent microscope platform that enables everyone to acquire superb superresolution images after only minutes of training. Define your experiment and enjoy fine imaging at the push of a button!

FAQ 19

“How did you manage to fit both, a STED and a confocal microscope, in a shoe box?”

STEDYCON

super small and super stable

The incredibly compact STEDYCON has the size of a shoebox, yet it is a full-fledged confocal and STED microscope. It fits on every microscope frame with a camera port. Get in touch with us to upgrade your system!

The STEDYCON is service and maintenance-free: The laser beams are aligned by design. So, there is no need to align the system, ever, and it works reliably every day.

STEDYCON

extremely user-friendly

Save your time with the STEDYCON software: only minutes of training are required to acquire STED and confocal images. Thanks to the powerful dye database behind, only minimal user input is needed, and even with unkown samples, you get with 3 clicks to the first STED image!

Our software is browser-based, so run it from any device, from any platform, from anywhere!

STEADYFOCUS

in focus, forever

The STEADYFOCUS laser runs side-by side with the imaging beam path. No dichroics are required and there is absolutely no interference with imaging.

The autofocus laser is coupled into the beam path using a dichroic mirror, which interferes with imaging.

Our STEADYFOCUS keeps the focus position stable. Forever. During STED imaging, when browsing through the sample, or for hours of time-lapse imaging, there is no need for refocussing, the STEADYFOCUS does the work for you. And everything you need for it is integrated inside the STEDYCON head, so it works on upright microscopes, too!

STEADYFOCUS

tiling and stitching is a piece of cake

Discover your samples! Acquire a quick tiled overview as a basis for tiled scans with overlap or for multi-position imaging. Define you experiment, let the microscope image for you, with active drift correction thanks to our STEADYFOCUS!

After tiled image acquisition, send over the data to Huygens, for easy, fast and reliable stitching – all needed parameters are automatically transferred.

Have a closer look here! In this joint online seminar abberior and SVI present tiling and stitching with STEDYCON and Huygens:

Multipositioning

let our STEDYCON do the work

Discover your whole sample, and then take your time to define your experiment – at which position would you like to acquire a z-stack, or a single image, or a tiled scan? Then let the microscope do the imaging for you. Increase your working efficiency, let it run over night, or already prepare your next experiment! It saves time and endless clicks …

SVI Huygens

deconvolution and analysis

Transfer images and metadata from the STEDYCON to Huygens with a single click. Start deconvolution in an instant, with our calibrated PSF already included. At the same time, use the incredibly powerful Huygens analysis and 3D visualization platform, or use the Huygens movie maker for all images taken with the STEDYCON.

Have a look at our partner website from SVI for more information:

STEDYCON to work in 1:28 min

Watch how the STEDYCON is unpacked, attached to the microscope frame, and used to immediately acquire excellent super-resolution images – no alignment needed, and just enough time to cook a coffee.

STEDYCON @ work

The STEDYCON upgrades any microscope frame, as long as a free camera port is available, and a good objective lens is key. All lasers, scanners, and detectors are already inside our STEDYCON box. The STEDYCON is super flexible and extremely stable, as it works reliably not only in climatized labs, but also on conferences, and even in our living rooms!
