A new Live Cell Microscope is born.
Not expensive, not BIG, fits in a normal Incubator and, only powered by one USB Cable.
Live view is possible with an amazing resolution of 5 MP.
Z-axis (Focus) position of the Microscope can be adjusted with a step motor which is controlled from
a Tablet or Notebook (PC).The following pictures are only a crop of the full visible area.
This is now the last Video, it is 11 Days long. 1 Second is 30 Minutes. The Video contains RPE Cells, what stayed in plato phase in begining.
This Video was taken 03.02-2020, it is 19H long, 1 Second is 10 Minutes, it shows how good the resolution is.
Please look for more videos on my Youtube Chanel-
The following Video is the Original Video, 1 Second is 30 Minutes. In future a time stamp is in the Videos.
In the near future darkening of image edges (vignetting) will be eliminated by optimized ways of lighting and image processing algorithms in combination.
Click on the Picture to get a higher Resolution Picture(not the full quality, but giving an impression).
The Software is easy to use, and allows you to setup the snapshot Interval time, from one minutes to some hours.
A feature will soon be added to the software, which will allow you to count cells conveniently and efficiently via an ImageJ connection with automated script commands.
Another feature to be added in the future are e-mail alerts if cells are getting confluent or other the culture reaches other parameters , that can be defined in ImageJ and will trigger an e-Maili alert. This will allow flexible use of the software tailored to requirements and endpoints.
Additionally the system can have a LED that allows visualization of DAPI staining. And aditional LED if needed.
Stay tuned, more is to come!.
Currently the System consitst of a small Microscope and a Tablet for remote control of the microscope andive monitoring of your cultures. Data can be recorded to a SD Card, or USB device.
Some more month will be required for testing , but support is already highly appreciated.
Please give me some more weeks of testing for it, but support us too.
If you are interested to get an offer or a prototype for evaluation, please contact us e.g. by filling out the contact form on the end of this page.. The prototype would be a preproduct version that allows only recording, but includes free Software updates, and upgrades.. Or fill out the contact form on the end of this firstname.lastname@example.org
The Youtube movies are made with the second and third prototype. The original file size is mostly more than 1 Gb (The last Video is mostly 20 Gb big). Youtube uses a high compression, but the quality will getting better with the new prototype and Software.
