Benchtop Confocal Microscope – BC43

Andor's Benchtop Confocal delivers amazing images at the push of a button. This plug-and-play confocal system has been designed with cost, performance and accessibility in mind, ensuring hassle-free, high-quality 2D & 3D imaging for busy researchers.

Fast and Easy Confocal Microscopy in any Lab

BC43 is a super-compact unit that is rich in features and benefits, making it the ideal microscope for early-stage researchers and experienced microscopists alike. With no requirement for a darkroom, researchers can access confocal technology on the same bench as their samples. This, coupled with the fast-learning curve, allows individual users and entire labs to become much more productive, without compromising results.

Key Features

  • Benchtop multimodal imaging system
  • Instant confocal: Blur-free imaging
  • Widefield imaging
  • Differential phase contrast & brightfield
  • Borealis uniform illumination
  • GPU-powered deconvolution

Key Applications: Cell biology, Developmental biology, Neuroscience, Cancer biology, Tissue imaging, Organoids & Large Organisms

Confocal, Widefield & Transmitted Light Microscopy All-In-One

Confocal Microscopy

Capture superb confocal images at least 10 times faster than point scanner-based systems with the Andor Benchtop Confocal.

BC43 is a prime solution for 3D imaging of thick samples. A high sensitivity, high-speed imaging camera makes it perfect for live-cell confocal imaging.

A motorized XY stage allows multiple point acquisition, large organism montages and multipoint scanning resulting in outstanding productivity from a single imaging experiment.

Widefield Fluorescence Microscopy

  • Offers the gentlest illumination mode for samples that are super-sensitive to light.
  • Detects lower sample signals than in confocal mode.
  • Offers the fastest imaging speeds to capture dynamic processes in live cells.

Use ClearView™ GPU to remove sample blur and enhance resolution, ensuring the best quality images.

Transmitted Light Microscopy

BC43 also delivers two different transmitted light options for amazing imaging flexibility:

  • Use Brightfield Mode to visualize the development of larger organisms whose structures naturally deliver high contrast images
  • For thinner samples and/or those with higher transparency, use Differential Phase Contrast (DPC) mode to draw out their structure

You can also mix and match modes like DPC and Widefield for even more imaging flexibility.
