As part of the annual EMBO and EMBL events, Olympus will be showcasing the open source microscopy concept, led by the IX3 inverted microscope frames, optimized for life science research.

Demonstrating the very latest in live cell imaging technologies, Olympus will exhibit its range of IX3 inverted microscope frames with associated software and accessories at the upcoming European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) Meeting 2013, taking place in Amsterdam on 21-24 September.

Delegates of the “Seeing is Believing -Imaging the Processes of Life” Symposium hosted by EMBO in collaboration with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), which takes place on the 3-6 October in Heidelberg (Germany), will also have the chance to discover how the Olympus open source microscopy concept is advancing live cell imaging.

Offering a completely modular and flexible system, the unique “open source” IX3 frames feature a swappable deck design which allows optical modules to be easily exchanged into the accessible infinite light path.

Moulding the IX3 microscope to a diverse range of applications, a selection of compatible modules and accessories are available both from Olympus and third party vendors.

Delegates of the EMBO meeting 2013 can visit booth 28 to discover how open source microscopy can transform their life science research, with a complimentary sushi buffet on Monday 23rd between 4 and 6pm.

The IX3 range will be on show featuring the fully automated IX83 and the highly customizable IX73. The IX83 is the most advanced system in the range, and will be controlled by the uniquely customizable cellSens imaging software.

With extensive acquisition, measurement and processing options, this configuration highlights how the operation of the IX3 is particularly intuitive, even for first time users.

Bringing together the leading developers of imaging methods with cutting edge applications, the “Seeing is Believing - Imaging the Processes of Life” Symposium hosted by EMBO/EMBL explores how imaging can answer biological questions.

As a gold sponsor of this event, Olympus will be hosting a coffee break, and at booth 1, delegates can learn how the IX83 and IX73 can be easily adapted to a variety of imaging technologies for capturing the dynamics of life.

The new Olympus cellVivo environmental control module will also be on show, which offers a host of benefits for live cell imaging, including optimized accessibility, darkroom and laser-safety capabilities.

Fully compatible with the IX73 and IX83 microscopes, this modular and flexible incubation system ensures precise control of environmental conditions, as well as user-friendly remote monitoring.
