American Society Cell Biology, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA - Dec 2005


Applied Precision is the leading company in the field with 3D-Structured Illumination microscopy with currently 20 installed OMX systems worldwide.


At the ASCB 2010 Meeting in December 2011 they have launched 3 new models at a much lower price than the first OMX versions.


These new models include:


OMX V4™ SI , the new entry level System with 3D-Structured Illumination, multiple color (filter wheel), single camera system

·        X,Y resolution between 80-120 nm

·        Z resolution between 250-350 nm (depending on wavelength)

·        Improved rotary stage

·        ~5 sec for 2 um, 512x512 (exp dependant)

·        1 camera with 1 filter wheel

·        405, 488, 561 lasers standard

·        60x 1.42 NA objective


OMX V4 Monet ,

·        Localization Microscopy

·        New advanced TIRF design

·        20-50 nm resolution using Monet™ Localization Software

     Proprietary Mixed Model Algorithm for fluorophore localization

     Fewer acquisition scans needed

     Can work with photoswitchable (PALM) or photoactivatable (STORM) localization systems
