Description of Disk Scanning Unit
The DSU (Disk Scanning Unit) represents a breakthrough in spinning disk confocal technology. The DSU disk contains a pattern of slits that creates a virtual pinhole as the disk spins at 3,000 to 5,600 rpm. Designed to optimize the trade off between confocality and light throughput, the DSU uses either the new U-HGLGPS mercury burner or the illumination system for maximum excitation wavelength flexibility at a reasonable cost.
