Optophase has introduced the Rapid Automated Modular Microscope (RAMM) system, which features a modular design to allow easy customisation.
The microscope is configurable with infinity-corrected optics, dichroic filter cubes, multi-wavelength excitation and emission filterwheels, and detectors including cameras and photomultipliers. A wide range of automated features can also be added; these include: high-speed XY stages, precision piezo and motorised Z focusing, auto-focus, and a robotic specimen loader. The system provides a solid platform for high throughput screening, genetic sequencing, experimental research, and much more. It has been designed for flexible cost-effective OEM development using high quality high MTBF components to reduce cost and increase customer satisfaction.
