The Dragonfly high-speed confocal imaging platform supports multiple high-contrast imaging techniques for studying various specimens.

The Dragonfly high-speed confocal imaging platform from Andor Technology (Belfast, Northern Ireland) supports multiple high-contrast imaging techniques for studying various specimens, including bacteria, single molecules at the cell membrane, embryos, organoids, and fixed and acute tissue sections. It features the company's Borealis Perfect Illumination Delivery system for confocal and widefield imaging to provide stability, uniformity, and spectral range into the near-infrared region, where autofluorescence can be largely avoided. Confocal illumination by hundreds of microbeams minimizes photobleaching and protects from phototoxicity in live cell experiments.
