EUROPattern Microscope Live is a fully automated immunofluorescence system with a processing time of only 2 seconds per image. The enormous speed is complemented by the high comfort of the user software EUROLabOffice 4.0 for evaluation of the immunofluorescence images directly on the computer screen. The intuitive touchscreen user interface allows the user to directly zoom in on the image or to change the position during live microscopy. Moreover, it is possible for several users to view the images simultaneously at the screen – no discussion bridge is required.
Up to 50 reaction fields are loaded into the microscope at once. Using the 20x objective, a high-resolution camera and high-quality optic components, a large number of substrates can be automatically viewed at the microscope, e.g. tissues, HEp-2 cells, Crithidia, granulocytes and antigen-expressing cells. Focusing is performed fully automatically by a new laser focusing technology. A self-regulating long-life LED as excitation source and the automated microscope calibration based on an integrated fluorescence standard ensure consistent immunofluorescence signal intensity. Owing to its compact design and the opaque housing, the EUROPattern Microscope Live can be used in any room and independently of the light conditions.
