unity

The all-in-one bench-top laser-free confocal microscope.

Introducing the Aurox unity, the first in a new breed of all-in-one, compact laser-free confocal microscope systems designed for ease of access and ease of use in your laboratory, at your bench.

Explore unity


True to its name, unity brings together in one fully integrated, compact and easy to use microscope, everything you need for confocal imaging, including:

unity’s motorised XYZ stage has been designed for use with a wide range of samples and sample mounts commonly used in biological research, including slides, multi-well plates and petri-dishes.

Designed around Aurox’s laser-free confocal technology, unity combines Aurox’s patented structured illumination spinning disc with state-of-the-art technology and a unique, novel optical arrangement. The results are high quality confocal images recorded quickly and easily in your laboratory.

Laser-free, unity uses a proven multi-spectral LED light source based on the CoolLED pE-300Ultra. The result is a high performance confocal microscope, which is free of laser safety restrictions and benefits from low photo-toxicity, low photo-bleaching, low maintenance and low cost of ownership.

At the heart of unity is a specially designed large format, high performance sCMOS digital detector. This detector is used to record both high resolution confocal and wide-field images as well as ultra-large field of view full overview images of the sample / mount.

unity comes ready to use, with an integrated objective lens. Your preferred objective lens can be selected from a range of options chosen to perfectly match your research applications.

unity does more than just collect high quality confocal imaging data. It also stores your data in an integrated OMERO image server database and makes your data accessible to you, wherever you are over a secure network.

For ease of user interface and control, unity comes complete, with a large format tablet computer, which communicates directly with unity over a secure private wireless connection.

Set-up, control and review of your imaging experiment has never been easier. Using a full function web-browser version of the Aurox Visionary software you can simply remote connect to unity over the network.

Often referred to as the ‘easiest to use’ and ‘most beautiful’ of confocal microscope software, Visionary presents all experiment set-up and device controls in one colour coded work-flow under a single graphical user interface window.

Connect unity

Designed for the laboratory bench-top, unity is extremely compact and weighs <18 Kg.


Gone are the tangle of cables. unity requires a single power cable and optionally a network cable.
For the rare occasions when needed, unity also has multiple front and rear USB-3 ports.
