Life Science & Medical
For BioMed applications, the transmitted light modules with 5x, 10x and 20x in profil-M design are ideal.
All modules are ultra-compact, come with the free OptoViewer and are programmable with many popular software packages. This makes them universal for scientific R&D needs as well as high-throughput screening solutions.
For microscopy automation, Opto offers its own OEM BioScreen platform for multi-fluorescence imaging, motorized X-Y-Z hardware and autofocus functionality.
Typical applications are:
- Slide screening of pathology biopsies
- Blood / urine analysis of smears or in flow
- IVF for visualization of embryos
- Low contrast biomaterial microscopy
- Microfluidics, flow cytometry imaging
- Automated multifluorescence image analysis
- digital and quantitative image-based PCR
- digital microscopes for lab-on-a-chip automation
Microscopy and automation solutions in biomedicine
Opto offers transmitted light microscopes for droplet-based microfluidics, automated multi-fluorescence microscopes for cell analysis, inverted autofocus microscopes for motion analysis of growth processes, and high-throughput fluorescence microscopes for DNA and RNA sequencing.
Opto's miniaturized imaging modules are found in a wide range of high-technology applications from world leaders. These include remote automated bacterial fluorescence microscopy, time-lapse high-throughput cell processing, automated high-throughput blood screening, DNA and RNA sequencing as well as surgical instruments for intraocular lens replacement.
Transmitted light microscopes for droplet-based microfluidics
Droplet-based or digital microfluidics is a screening method used in practice for various applications. It involves the generation of serial sequences of droplets, which are regarded as self-contained reaction vessels.
Plug&Play AI Microscope for Urine Sediment Examination
with CNN-based image processing system from Basler and Opto
In a urine sediment analysis, laboratory staff examine the solid components of a urine sample under a microscope to diagnose diseases of the kidney or urinary organs. However, manual examinations under the microscope are usually error-prone and take up valuable time. Many laboratories are therefore now using automated systems.
Laboratory workstations for continuous photo-documented sample tracking across all preparation steps of pathological specimens (tumor tissue, skin and bone biopsies).
CellScope's for cell analysis
Minimized, ultra-compact microscope with special illumination method for live cell observation in sterile environment with automated function and image evaluation.
With over 3 years of development, the Opto DualStation combines all the imaging techniques and magnifications typically used in IVF laboratories. It condenses these into a small, affordable system that can be seamlessly housed in the new generation of fully enclosed microscope chambers.
SCHWIND eye-tech-solutions GmbH manufactures devices for the treatment of corneal refractive errors using the LASIK procedure (laser in situ keratomileusis). Opto developed a stereo operation microscope for a new generation of devices, which allows the doctor to visually check the operation and at the same time couples the UV spectrum of the excimer laser used in a controlled manner.
