Automated Imaging Systems

Automated Imaging SystemsWe are designing and assembling automated imaging systems using state-of-the-art technology. One such approach is to mount our biomolecular analysis platform on a high-speed piezo-electric stage with nanometer-scale positioning accuracy. The microscope objective is also mounted to a piezo-electric drive to enable rapid auto-focusing capabilities. Other critical components invoved in this type of system include extremely sensitive cameras containing electron-multiplying charge-coupled devices (EMCCD), lasers, and ultra-high-speed wavelength switchers.
