Considering Confocal Microscopy - Why Compromise?

Bruker 3D optical microscopes provide gage-capable metrology without limitations

Best Vertical Resolution at Any Magnification

Bruker 3D optical microscopes utilize closed-loop scanning in the Z-axis to provide subnanometer vertical resolution and 0.01 nanometer RMS repeatability. This gives you reliable, repeatable data within the field of view most applicable to your specific application. Bruker 3D optical microscopes maintain this high resolution regardless of the magnification or field of view. Confocal microscopes do not provide comparable resolution unless running at 50x magnification and higher which limits your field of view. 

Largest Field of View

3D optical microscopes capture complete datasets with fields of view dependent upon the objective selected, allowing for lower magnification and larger fields of view. With Bruker's proprietary AcuityXR™ technology you can even achieve high lateral resolution (breaking diffraction limits) at these lower magnifications. Moreover, Bruker's automated stage options enable much larger areas of interest to be imaged and stitched into a single, high-resolution dataset.

Notice the confocal image loss of quality at the lower magnification.
