Discover open source microscopy for live cell imaging

Olympus IX3 range

As part of the annual EMBO and EMBL events, Olympus showcases the open source microscopy concept, led by the IX3 inverted microscope frames, optimised for life science research.

Demonstrating the very latest in live cell imaging technologies, Olympus exhibited its range of IX3 inverted microscope frames with associated software and accessories at the  European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) Meeting 2013, in Amsterdam on 21-24 September. Delegates of the “Seeing is Believing –Imaging the Processes of Life” Symposium hosted by EMBO in collaboration with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), which takes place on the 3-6 October in Heidelberg (Germany), will also have the chance to discover how the Olympus open source microscopy concept is advancing live cell imaging.  

Offering a completely modular and flexible system, the unique “open source” IX3 frames feature a swappable deck design which allows optical modules to be easily exchanged into the accessible infinite light path. Moulding the IX3 microscope to a diverse range of applications, a selection of compatible modules and accessories are available both from Olympus and third party vendors.

The IX3 range was on show featuring the fully automated IX83 and the highly customisable IX73. The IX83 is the most advanced system in the range, and will be controlled by the uniquely customisable cellSens imaging software. With extensive acquisition, measurement and processing options, this configuration highlights how the operation of the IX3 is particularly intuitive, even for first time users.

Bringing together the leading developers of imaging methods with cutting edge applications, the “Seeing is Believing – Imaging the Processes of Life” Symposium hosted by EMBO/EMBL explored how imaging can answer biological questions. As a gold sponsor of this event, Olympus hosted a coffee break, and at booth 1, delegates  learnt how the IX83 and IX73 can be easily adapted to a variety of imaging technologies for capturing the dynamics of life. The new Olympus cellVivo environmental control module was also  on show, which offers a host of benefits for live cell imaging, including optimised accessibility, darkroom and laser-safety capabilities. Fully compatible with the IX73 and IX83 microscopes, this modular and flexible incubation system ensures precise control of environmental conditions, as well as user-friendly remote monitoring.
