Live Cell Nanoscale Imaging System
OXFORD, England, May 20, 2016 — Oxford Nanoimaging Ltd. has announced the Nanoimager, a desktop, nanoscale imaging system for live cells.
The Nanoimager can measure the dynamics of molecular interactions and structural transitions such as the detection of protein subunit assembly or the real-time observation of DNA synthesis.
The unit has been engineered from the bottom up for optimum single-molecule imaging functionality. It may be operated on a regular desk or bench without the need for extra antivibration or environmental isolation.
- An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
