If funds are limited then Rescan Confocal Microscopy from NTL offers an alternative budget friendly solution to overcome Abbe's resolution limit barrier and obtain 1.41 times better lateral resolution. The high resolution back illuminated CMOS camera detector fited to this system improves the signal-to-noise ratio 4 times more than a standard confocal PMT detector microscopy set up. Click the link 1 and link 2 learn more how the second re-scanning unit improves resolution.
