A redesigned epi-fluorescence light path and LED light source allows users to rapidly find samples with a 20x objective.
LED light source is independent from the laser launch and controlled in SlideBook, eliminating the need for a flip mirror.
Fully enclosed, medical-grade stainless steel specimen chamber with thermoelectric cooling (TEC) temperature control.
Rapid heating and cooling of the upper and lower sample chambers allows for a quick transition between the imaging of specimens with different optimal temperature.
Cells are mounted on a standard, horizontally-oriented 5mm round coverslip.
Motorization of the lower sample chamber allows for easy access to the sample holder, precisely returning the specimen to the prior Z position.
Maintains the integrity of the optical path by leaving the objectives stationary.
A motorized annular mask contains 17 of the most commonly used annuli and one blank position enabling rapid and straightforward switching to a different annulus.
Lattice pattern generation in SlideBook combined with the motorized annular mask allows for real-time biological evaluation of different annuli and patterns.
