Periodontal membrane

Capturing clear images without fluorescence blurring

High-resolution, wide-field observation of the periodontal membrane of mice

The periodontal membrane, also known as periodontal ligament, is a connective tissue that attaches the tooth root to the alveolar bone (upper and lower jawbones).
This fibrous tissue also adjusts bite forces applied to the tooth (impact absorption).

Image Stitching

Objective lens: CFI Plan Apo λ 40x
Image stitching: 5 images x 5 images

Image Stitching

Up to 50,000 x 50,000 pixels (40,000 images) can be rapidly joined together without stitch lines or variations in brightness.

Once you have the BZ-X:

The Optical Sectioning function makes it possible to eliminate fluorescence blurring and capture clear images.

A built-in Z-stack function captures multiple images at different focal positions and is able to create a fully-focused image by combining only the areas that are at their sharpest focus.

For well plates that cannot be fully displayed in the field-of-view, by capturing adjacent images and stitching them together, it is possible to acquire a single image with high resolution.

Each cell can be extracted and counted using Hybrid Cell Count.
