Andor BC43 Benchtop Confocal Microscope

Small in size, big in performance




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.



  • Benchtop multimodal imaging system
  • Instant confocal: Blur-free imaging
  • Widefield imaging
  • Differential phase contract and brightfield
  • Boreali uniform illumination
  • GPU-powered deconvolution

Confocal Imaging

Confocal technology provides high-contrast, blur-free images. It boost image quality of thin samples, such as monolayer cultures, and is especially suited for thick samples like small model organisms, 3D cultures and cleared tissues.

BC43 captures images at least 10x faster than point scanning confocals, boosting productivity, yet maintaining full resolution. Image deeper with higher quality than solutions that relay on computational clearing or deconvolution alone.

Until now confocal has been too expensive and complex for many. BC43 is revolutionary - a confocal at the heart of your lab at an affordable price with no expertise required !


Widefield Imaging

With such easy access to confocal why use widefield imaging ? Widefield is appropriate especially for thin samples, where it can provide greater sensitivity and higher speeds, resulting in an increase in productivity and temporal resolution. Combine with deconvolution for resolution comparable to a confocal image. Examples of suitable samples are issue sections or micro-organisms.


Transmitted Light Imaging

BC43 offers two transmitted light optionsl brightfield for samples with inherent contract like larger organisms, and Differential Phase Contrast (DPC), that can be applied for samples which deliver high and low contrast.
