With resolving power that surpasses the limits of conventional optical microscopes, the Olympus IXplore SpinSR10 imaging system balances speed, resolution, and efficiency in a single, flexible platform. A high frame rate and 120 nm XY resolution enable researchers to observe the fine details and workings of internal cellular structures while offering the ability to switch between super resolution, confocal and widefield imaging modes.
With the system’s advanced spinning disc confocal technology, researchers can use the imaging mode that most suits their sample. It’s simple to switch between super resolution, high-speed confocal and widefield imaging with a single click. This flexibility makes it easy to locate areas of interest using widefield, obtain high contrast confocal images, and observe dynamic phenomena inside cells with super resolution.
The SpinSR10 system’s super resolution technology can quickly image as deep as 100 microns into regions that can be hard to access using traditional super resolution methods. A suite of features helps minimize phototoxicity and photobleaching when capturing 3D images, prolonging the viability of live cells during time-lapse imaging. Researchers get all of these benefits without having to change their existing fluorescence labeling protocols—live cell, super resolution images can be captured using conventional fluorescent dyes.
