Image Quality of Spinning Disk, FRAP Quality of Point Scanner
"Academic and non-profit research institutions asked for integrated FRAP capabilities with spinning disk technology to improve their ability to study fast-moving objects and rapid events in live cells with point-and-click ease," Duseau said. "PhotoKinesis in combination with UltraVIEW is an ideal live cell analysis solution."
UltraVIEW allows users to acquire high-speed, high-resolution, multi-dimensional images of live biological samples including cultured cells, tissues and embryos. The PhotoKinesis accessory further enhances the system's imaging capability by providing a fully integrated system for studying cells and tissues.
Another key benefit, Duseau noted, is that the low levels of photobleaching present during imaging with UltraVIEW, cause less artifacts in FRAP, Fluorescence Loss in Photo Bleaching (FLIP) and other similar experiments. This leads to simpler and more accurate data interpretation.
Vital to Biomedical Research
FRAP, FLIP and photoswitching techniques are vital to biomedical research because they enable scientists to better understand the basic processes of cellular function and the cellular pathways of a particular disease. Researchers can study disease mechanisms for conditions such as neuro-degeneration, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. These techniques also enhance developmental studies and general cell biology applications.
