Olympus Inverted Microscope IXplore SpinSR

PT Wadya Prima Mulia as the Exclusive Distributor for Evident-Olympus in Indonesia, provides Inverted Microscope IXplore SpinSR and others.

Confocal Super Resolution for All Live Cell Samples

Designed for fast 3D super resolution imaging and prolonged cell viability in time-lapse experiments, the IXplore SpinSR microscope system offers XY resolution down to 120 nm without the need for dedicated labeling procedures.

  • Super resolution down to 120nm XY resolution
  • Prolonged cell viability in confocal time-lapse imaging due to less phototoxicity and bleaching
  • Switch between widefield, confocal and super-resolution with one click
  • Accurate 3D reconstruction with Olympus silicone oil immersion objectives

Suited for Live Specimens

OSR algorithms work in real time to eliminate delays caused by frame averaging or image reconstruction, providing instant super resolution images so you can get to your results faster.

This enables experimental design for super resolution to include live cell experiments, which are further improved through the ultrafast imaging speeds and multichannel acquisition capabilities of the spinning disk confocal.

Streamline Your Research

Easily integrate the IXplore SpinSR microscope system into existing experiment and sample protocols; you can switch from widefield, confocal, and super resolution using the same samples with just the click of a button— the microscope takes care of the rest.

Image data can be further enhanced using cellSens software’s image analysis tools. The software’s efficient workflows enable users to effectively manage their data and perform advanced analysis that helps unlock new insights.

TruSight deconvolution algorithms are designed to work seamlessly with OSR algorithms, helping prevent over processing. Together they provide sharper, clearer images than either technique alone.

Reveal Super Resolution Details Inside Your Samples

To observe intracellular structures, it is necessary to prevent out of focus fluorescence from blurring the true data in your final image. The IXplore SpinSR microscope system has incorporated a confocal optical system, enabling the use of  various objectives, including silicone oil optics, therefore allowing the acquisition of sharp super resolution images with less blurring even in thick samples. Furthermore, no special fluorophores or imaging buffers are required so there is no need to change samples or preparation protocols when looking to convert to super resolution.

Super Resolution with TruSight

Reveal Your Data

Our TruSight deconvolution can be combined with super resolution to provide images that clearer and sharper than with deconvolution alone. The 3D constrained iterative deconvolution removes blur in the Z-axis for a cleaner three-dimensional image.

  • High-speed image processing with the advanced TruSight deconvolution
  • TruSight deconvolution is compatible with Olympus Super Resolution

Two-Color Simultaneous Imaging

The IXplore SpinSR system can use two cameras simultaneously to achieve fast, two-color localization super-resolution imaging. This is achieved using existing fluorophores and laser lines.

HeLa cells derived from human cervical cancer were fixed and stained for α-tublin(microtubules,red) and Hec1(kinetochores, green),respectively. DNA was stained with DAPI(chromosomes,blue). Chromosomes interact with microtubules constituting mitotic spindle via kinetochores assembled on centromere region of chromosomes.
