ASI’s Dual Inverted Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (diSPIM)

 

ASI’s diSPIM system is an extremely cell friendly for imaging live specimens. It only illuminates the region of the specimen that is being viewed, reducing phototoxicity and reducing photobleaching  ~7-10 fold. Unlike other SPIM ...

 
 
 

Redefining the Standard for Ultra Fast FLIM Imaging: rapidFLIM

 

The novel rapidFLIM approach allows acquiring fluorescence lifetime images at high speeds by exploiting recent hardware developments.Depending on image size and sample brightness, more than 15 images can be acquired per second, allowing ...
