OMX V2 Optical Microscope, eXperimental

New Biochemistry Room 00-056

This is a cutting edge fluorescence microscope system. It has two complimentary functionalities.

Fast Live mode: In this mode it is able to grab simultaneous images in multiple colours, extremely rapidly and with very accurate timing control.

3D Structured Illumination mode: in this mode the system uses structured illumination and computer processing to generate 3D image stacks with twice the conventional resolution, ie just over 100nm in XY and about 250 nm in Z.
