Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope
SIMSCOP Series Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

Confocal Microscopy is an optical imaging technique for increasing the Optical Resolution and Contrast of a Micrograph by using a Spatial Pinhole to block out-of-focus light in image formation. Capturing multiple two-dimensional images at different depths in a specimen enables the reconstruction of three-dimensional imaging.


This technology is widely adopted in scientific and industrial, for life science, material, or semiconductor  inspection. However, the cost of the mature commercialized system is usually very high.


SIMTRUM see the needs of the customer to have a robust confocal microscope system with reasonable cost. Our SIMSCOP Series offers a great balance between functionality, cost, and flexibility.

Silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) consist of an array of SPADs fabricated on a shared substrate, with outputs into a shared readout channel (c). Each element acts as an all-or-none photon detector that produces a pulse of stereotypic height with low variability (d). Pulses from all elements sum to form the SiPM output. A large number of elements in the array (>1000) allows many photons to be detected simultaneously without saturation and enable large active areas compatible with large-etendue objectives.

Confocal Imaging Applications






Drosophila brain; triple antibody staining:

Alexa 488, Alexa 568 and Alexa 633


Confocal micrograph of Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress)

Seeding leaf with stomata(yellow moth-like structures)

And parenchyma cells.







Glioblastoma cells in culture transfected with a green fluorescent protein. The nuclei are stained blue with DAPI. The red spots are 0.02-micron fluorescent spheres that have been taken up into the cells by endocytosis. These cells have no endogenous P10 protein; P10 is a tumor suppressor gene that is mutated in many different types of cancer. The absence of the P10 protein is thought to increase cell mobility and possibly contribute to metastasis.






Shown is a confocal microscope image of a human gingival fibroblast in culture. Interphase microtubules (green) are labeled with alpha/beta-tubulin primary antibodies. FITC conjugated secondary antibody was applied afterward. Nuclear DNA (blue) was stained with Hoechst33242.






Live mitotic HeLa cell treated with epsin1 siRNA, DiOC6(3)to label mitotic membranes (green). Confocal images were taken at 0.118 μm steps along the Z-axis.
