Photometrics Prime 4.2 Megapixel Scientific CMOS Camera   
Photometrics Prime is the first intelligent sCMOS camera to incorporate a powerful FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing™ engine (ESP), enabling advanced real-time processing. 
Prime's intelligent features include:-
  • PrimeEnhance™ - quantitatively increases the Signal to Noise Ratio by 3X-5X, increasing the clarity and quality of images.
  • PrimeLocate™ - dynamically evaluates acquired images and reduces the surplus of data generated during high speed super resolution imaging.

CrestOptics X-Light V2 Spinning Disk Confocal

The X-Light V2 Spinning Disk Confocal Imager from CrestOptics is a full-spectrum spinning disk confocal that attaches to most major models of inverted or upright fluorescence microscopes.
The design of the CrestOptics X-Light V2 Spinning Disk Confocal is unique; it does not use expensive micro-lenses and dual disk strategy implemented in other microlens based spinning disk systems.
  • single disk with a proprietary pinhole pattern
  • superior 15,000 RPM motor
  • option for a manual emission filter wheel to reduce cost
  • multi-channel LED light source compatible
  • VCS (VideoConfocal super-resolution) module add-on is available allowing widefield, confocal and super-resolution mode.

Dual Inverted Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (diSPIM) 

Applied Scientific Instrumentation (ASI) has developed a new form of light sheet microscopy. The diSPIM can be mounted on to an existing inverted microscope, or supplied with ASI's Rapid Automated Modular Microscope system (RAMM).
  • Low photo-bleaching: >10x reduction vs. confocal/spinning disk
  • Rapid 3D imaging with isotropic resolution (330 nm in all directions)
  • ~2x better axial resolution than confocal/spinning disk systems
  • Acquisition rates up to 200 planes per second
  • Microscope has multicolor capability
  • Use conventional sample mounting on glass cover slips or open dish
  • Tested successfully on cells embedded in collagen gels and nematode and zebrafish embryos
