Adaptive Optics Microscope

Sciotex developed all the custom LabVIEW software for controlling a unique microscope which employs adaptive optics to enable orders of magnitude reduction in blurring in deep biological samples. The research behind this microscope was featured in Nature Methods, with Sciotex developer, Daniel Milkie, Ph.D. as one of the authors.

Light Sheet Microscope

Multi-view Light Sheet Microscope

Sciotex developed all the custom LabVIEW software for controlling a unique microscope which employs multiple illumination and detection arms, along with scanning light sheet fluorescence, to obtain high resolution time series images of biological samples. The research behind this microscope was featured in Nature Methods.

Birefringence Imager

System for acquiring and analyzing images of birefringent materials in 96 position well plates. The system automatically controls an XY table, high resolution camera, light source, and dual polarizing wheels.

Confocal Microscope

Confocal Microscope

Sciotex, along with researchers at the University of Pennsylvania developed a confocal microscope with two photon fluorescence capability.

CellSpotter™ Cell Detection System

Collects, analyzes, and archives microscope images of specially prepared blood samples, which are then used to detect circulating caner cells.

Bio-sample Biaxial Load Tester

Investigates the mechanical properties of biological and synthetic tissues by stretching samples using a set of four in-plane stepper motors. In this system, load cells monitor the forces applied to the sample, while an overhead camera tracks marker dots on the sample.

Wellplate Inspection System

Software controls an XY stage and takes pictures of the well samples and then analyzes wells for interesting characteristics.

Thin Film Defect Detection System

Thin Film Defect Detection

Identifies and quantifies defects in thin films. The system utilizes a high-resolution camera, zoom lens, and XYZ motion control, which allows for imaging over an extended area and for auto-focus control.
