Nikon Sora super-resolution spinning disc confocal microscope

For live imaging where speed and gentleness are required, the SoRa spinning disc confocal microscope is an excellent option. Unlike a point scanning confocal, the SoRa spinning disc illuminates multiple points simultaneously and is a camera based system for fast acquisition.  The SoRa is capable of working in two spinning disc modes: normal, and SoRa super-resolution mode. In super-resolution mode, resolution is improved approximately 1.4x (150 xy and 320 Z).
