Diskovery Super Resolution System

We are committed to providing leading edge products and services that are both effective and expandable over time. Quorum is the leading supplier of spinning disk confocal microscopes in Canada and this is largely due to the superior performance of our solutions as well as our outstanding service and support.  In conjunction with Spectral Applied Research, we have developed the most advanced spinning disk confocal system available on the market today and, more recently, we have focused on TIRF and Localized Microscopy (Super-resolution) solutions. The culmination of this development and optimization is manifest in the Diskovery Platform.

Andor Diskovery Super Resolution System

Designed as the next generation imaging system it brings together Borealis and zoom illumination, and three complementary imaging modalities: multi-point confocal, localization based (single molecule), and total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF). This system is suited for live cell/organ/organism imaging at depth, as well as fixed sample (thin and thick) imaging. In addition, the Andor Diskovery excels in a wide range of biophysics applications, which make use of its capabilities to image cell membranes at high resolution (TIRF) and resolve single molecules (localization based microscopy).

Lasers, while wavelength specific and intense, also create a distinctly Gaussian illumination profile that ultimately results in an uneven representation of your samples fluorescence emission on the camera. The Borealis illumination system not only illuminates your sample with minimal “roll-off” but also focuses the light only in the areas being imaged. This provides extremely uniform data for your analysis and provides the high laser power and low stray light required for single molecule
