A Cut Above the Rest

Aug 16 2007

Olympus has announced an upgrade to its benchmark CellCut laser microdissection system with MMI CapLift technology. The CellCut Plus features a new single or multi-position plug & play automated CapLift with adjustable contact pressure and offers full access to all motorised functions of the IX81. The CellCamera ultra high sensitivity digital camera series has been added, which includes a specialist black and white camera for top-end fluorescence research. The UVCut Plus software has also been updated to exploit these new features and offers an advanced Predefined Target Positioning (PTP) collection method.

The Olympus CellCut Plus is designed for life science professionals undertaking molecular biological analyses in a wide variety of fields. Interfaced with the manual Olympus IX71 and fully motorised IX81 inverted microscopes and using UV laser and unique patented isolation technologies, CellCut Plus ensures the fast, reliable and precise dissection and manipulation of paraffin and frozen tissue sections, and even smears and cell cultures. Based on the unique CapLift isolation technology and peerless MembraneSlide sandwiches the CellCut Plus eliminates any direct specimen contact, thereby ensuring totally contamination-free samples and isolated extracts.

The CellCut Plus is a highly versatile research level system which, with the new CellCamera, delivers outstanding image quality for the quick and easy pinpointing of cells for isolation. As many single cells or groups of cells as required can be identified, by simply drawing freehand or via predefined geometric shapes using intuitive operating software and a Pen Touch monitor. Selected cells or even cell compartments are then cut out automatically using a high-precision picosecond pulsed UV laser.
