Fluorescence Microscope System for Advanced Imaging and Analysis

Fluorescence Microscopy

Fluorescence is one of the most commonly used physical phenomena in biological and analytical microscopy for its high sensitivity and high specificity. Fluorescence is a form of luminescence that through microscopy allows users to determine the distribution of a single molecule species, its amount and its localization inside a cell. Colocalization and interaction studies can be performed, and ion concentrations as well as intra- and intercellular processes like endocytosis and exocytosis can be observed. With the help of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, it is even possible to image sub-resolution structures.

Organoids and 3D Cell Culture

One of the most exciting recent advancements in life science research is the development of 3D cell culture systems, such as organoids, spheroids, or organ-on-a-chip models. A 3D cell culture is an artificial environment in which cells are able to grow and interact with their surroundings in all 3 dimensions. These conditions are similar to how they would be in vivo.
