A statement attributed to Roger Tsien of the University of California, San Diego, gave the mistaken impression that there is no commercially available laser-based confocal system today capable of video-rate imaging. To the contrary, Meridian Instruments Inc., Bio-Rad Microscience Division, and Noran Instruments Inc. all market systems capable of capturing 30 frames a second. In our case, we have been marketing the INSIGHT Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope (a real-time, real-color system offering video-rate image capture) worldwide since April 1991.
