Luxendo Invi SPIM lattice PRO
- Advanced Illumination Module (AIM)

The Advanced Illumination Module (AIM) is a modular extension of the InVi SPIM that provides the highest level of flexibility for illuminating your sample with a light-sheet.
AIM offers a variety of illumination patterns: single or multiple varia ble Bessel beams, optical lattices and structured illumination, or static or scanned Gaussian beams.
The optical concept and performance of the InVi SPIM AIM enables:
  • High level of flexibility
  • Minimal phototoxicity
  • Confocal resolution
  • High imaging speed
  • Highest sensitivity and minimal noise
  • Dynamic cellular interactions
  • Cell cycle imaging
  • Membrane dynamics
  • Subcellular structure visualization
  • Tracking protein movements in 3D
  • Long time-lapse imaging

Tomocube, Inc
- Holotomography Microscopes for Long-Term Live Cell Imaging

The Tomocube HT-2 series opens a new era of 3D correlative imaging, and is the world's first microscopy unit to effectively combine holotomography and 3D fluorescence imaging. Capable of simultaneously capturing high-resolution 3D optical diffraction tomography and 3D fluorescence images, the microscope enables long-term tracking of specific targets in live cells while minimising stress.
Ground-breaking research was recently undertaken by Tomocube Inc. and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) using the HT-2 microscope to explore the 4D interaction dynamics of T cells and their targets in the Immunological Synapse for the first time.

- The Grundium Ocus - Portable Whole Slide Imaging Microscope

The Grundium Ocus removes the need for physical slide transfers between the clinic and the lab and enables live telepathology consultations between surgeons and pathologists. The Grundium Ocus is a monumental leap in digital pathology. It is a precision tool small and affordable enough to be on every medical professional's desk. It is truly portable and it can be brought anywhere. Wireless connectivity means telepathology is now possible practically anywhere on the planet.
Key Features:
  • 6 MP Image Sensor
  • Portable and Wireless
  • Compact and Lightweight
  • Easy to use
  • 500 Gb internal hard drive
  • Automated X Y Stage - Full (1" X 3") slide scanning
  • Overview Image - Automated trimming of areas to be scanned, adjustable by the user

Visitron Systems ORBITAL-100 Ring-TIRF Laser Illumination   
-Affordable Ring-TIRF system for total internal reflection fluorescence

The highly compact unit is based on high speed 2D galvo that drives the Ring-TIRF illumination. It offers a large illuminated field of view to enable applications such as single molecule tracking or STORM based super-resolution microscopy. Full 360 degree rotation by free cirĀ­cular diameter or elliptical trajectory at the back focal plane of the high aperture TIRF objective, offers illumination with minimum interference fringes and shadowing effects.
Key Features:
  • Affordable TIRF and Wide-field illumination
  • Single or multimode fibre coupling
  • 2D galvo controlled movement of illumination spot for optimised point TIRF illumination
  • Oblique illumination
  • Combination with flexible VS Laser-Combiner up to 8 laser lines
