MAICO MEMS Confocal unit

Making confocal imaging more accessible

MAICO® MEMS confocal unit is a confocal unit easily installed on your inverted microscope to achieve confocal fluorescence imaging.
The unit is compact enough to fit on a laboratory bench and does not require other devices such as cameras, filters, and lasers.
This model has a 405 nm laser source and standard detector.


  • Our modular subunit structure makes adding extra channels easy
  • High sensitivity detectors
  • High-speed scanning with MEMS mirror
  • Gold-standard confocal optics
  • No laser control area required
  • Compatible with DCAM-API
  • Enable simultaneous multiband confocal acquisition without bleed-through (patent pending)

     Subunit lineup

Up to 4 imaging channels can be supported if you add.

It is not possible to install two or more subunits with the same laser wavelength. Also, replacement of the detector alone is not possible.

Different laser lines and their detectors can be added or removed based on the subunit selection.
