Olympus Microscopy Software Moves into Pole Position
The Multi-position Solution module is designed to make the study of large or complicated samples simple, flexible and precise. Typically, the acquisition of microscope images has been a trade off between a need to capture pictures at a high level of magnification and a desire to maintain the widest possible field of view. The Olympus Multi-position system provides researchers with the best of both worlds by allowing multiple, high-resolution images to be systematically captured and then seamlessly stitched together to create incredibly detailed panoramas limited only by the size of the microscope stage. The system is fully automated and customisable, providing the capacity to study as many areas of interest per sample as desired, or even the entire stage when necessary. In this way, sequential time-lapse imaging across different areas of a specimen can significantly boost the statistical relevance of the data collected.
As well as being fully compliant with Olympus hardware, the software integrates seamlessly with a wide range of third party stages, including those manufactured by Oasis, Prior, LUDL and Märzhäuser.
In combination with other Solution modules available for the cellSens Dimension system, the Multi-position Solution module removes the restrictions imposed by traditional image capture from a single field of view, making it possible to perform multiple fluorophore, 3D, time-lapse enabled imaging over an entire microscope stage.
