How to get started at the AOMF

O-MUG

Comprehensive Course on Fluorescence Microscopy


AxioImager Features

  • Upright configuration perfect for fixed slides.
  • Motorized stage and focus - ideal for multi-dimensional imaging experiments, such as multi-position, z-stacking, etc.
  • Hamamatsu Flash4 - provides higher sensitivity and resolution and larger field of view than most cameras, has two modes: one for fast imaging (up to 100 f/s) and one for low-noise applications.
  • Filter sets optimized for FISH imaging (UV to far-red dyes).
  • ZEN acquisition software
  • EXACTE fluorescence light source allows you to maintain a constant power throughout your experiment.
