Provider of imaging and analysis systems, Applied Precision sends its Mobile Imaging Lab to various research centers, universities, and colleges, on a cross-country tour. The Mobile Imaging Lab, built on a 40-foot coach bus, comprises the company’s DeltaVision Core and personalDV imaging systems, as well as, a wet lab.
The company’s Mobile Imaging Lab operates as a moving imaging learning center and workshop, for students and researchers. The visitors to the lab can study the basics of light microscopy methods, and image their samples on the latest imaging equipment.
The Mobile Imaging Lab includes a new special touch screen education part, which demonstrates the company’s super-resolution imaging system, the DeltaVision OMX. This 3-D super-resolution microscopy system increases the optical resolution of the conventional light microscopy by more than two times. The super-resolution feature of the DeltaVision OMX is vital for microbiologists and cell biologists, to examine events and objects that are impossible to study using traditional microscopy imaging techniques.
The Mobile Imaging Lab has started its journey from Seattle on September 10, and it will travel to University of Kansas, Creighton University Medical School in Nebraska, National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Maryland, University of Kentucky, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York. The lab will be returning back by the next spring.
