Evaluate differences between widefield, optical sectioning, and confocal microscopes. Some key advantages of optical sectioning include:
• High-resolution imaging of thick specimens
• Minimize damage to increase specimen longevity
• Image through plastic containers and at low magnification
• High-speed, easy operation for improved workflow
A highly-sensitive, cooled CCD camera eliminates background noise and captures clear high-resolution images fit for publication. The system goes beyond the capabilities of conventional widefield microscopes by providing confocal-like image quality.
Acquire Z-stacks of thick specimens to analyze features in all focal planes - even through plastic media. Captured images can be combined to create 3D images for analysis and measurement.
Accurately quantify results of images captured in fluorescence, brightfield, and phase contrast. Save settings and batch-process the results for user-independent, repeatable quantification.
Capture conditions are saved with each image for repeatable observation throughout the course of an experiment. Load any image to automatically reproduce results.
