The precision stages and focusing systems from Prior Scientific have been adopted by Mesolens as part of its microscope system that delivers faster, deeper, wider and more sensitive imaging than current methods. The Mesolens microscope makes it possible, to image relatively large biomedically important specimens such as embryos, brain areas or tumours with full 3D recording of many thousands of cells.
The design of the microscope includes a novel apochromatic lens, with a numerical aperture to magnification ratio far in excess of conventional lenses used by other microscope manufacturers. The low magnification with exceptionally high numerical aperture lens can image an entire specimen, whilst retaining sub-cellular detail throughout the entire specimen, removing the need for image stitching.
Prior Scientific's control system, motorised stage and focus motor were chosen by Mesolens because of the stability and reliability.
The focus motor supplied by Prior Scientific enables the Mesolens microscope to provide accurate imaging in the Z-Axis. The leading edge repeatability and precision of Prior Scientific microscope stage ensures that the correct position of the specimen is obtained and maintained throughout the entire imaging process.
Mesolens commented that by using Prior Scientific as a supplier, it is confident that the positioning elements of its system are of the highest quality, meaning that the end user can take full advantage of the potential offered by their new microscope.
