Dear microscope freaks
How would you like to run some gentle live sample imaging with a 60x objective with:
- an xy resolution of 120 nm without software tricks (or even better after deconvolution),
- the great contrast of a true confocal,
- 82 frames per second,
- or decide to bypass everything, go widefield and image at 100 frames per second with a super large field of view (220×220 um)?
Sounds good to me! 🙂
For the next 2 weeks you can do that with the new toy on demo at the LCI facility!
The beast is a new sort of spinning disk confocal and is called SoRa (Super-Resolution Optical Reassignment). It is a collaboration between Nikon and Yokogawa.
We even have 2 cameras to compare (Prime95B and BSI from Photometrics).
Oliver Garner from Bergman Labora will give a short online presentation of how SoRa works on Monday (29th) at 13:00. The presentation is done remotely and broadcasted live. You can join the audience from the comfort of your office chair by following the instructions here (please try beforehand to make sure all works).
