Olympus xcellence microscope systems
The Olympus xcellence line covers advanced live-cell techniques such as real-time, high-speed imaging, TIRFM and HILO (cell^TIRF), photo control such as FRAP, FLIP and photoactivation (cell^FRAP), and laser spinning disc confocal (cell^SPIN).
The Olympus xcellence live cell imaging system range is designed to bring the most advanced fluorescent imaging techniques within easier reach, while pushing the very boundaries of optical imaging. The Unix-based controller provides the high-speed parallel component management required to ensure that each procedure can capture the most advanced data. The xcellence software includes the Experiment Manager, a universal planning and execution tool with logic and simple drag-and-drop experiment construction. The company's systems are desigend for imaging live cells over prolonged periods of time with the Olympus MT20 fluorescence lightsource providing highly stabilized mercury or mercury-xenon burner control with very fast filter, attenuator, and shutter changes. The software also offers Olympus Data Bus (ODB) enhanced controls for a broader spectrum of hardware including laser linking, for fast switching and precise control of laser lines.
