GE Healthcare DeltaVision OMX 3D-SIM


GE HealthCare DeltaVision OMX


The DeltaVision OMX is a 3D structured illumination microscope (3D-SIM) designed to provide a highly stable, multi-channel imaging platform for advanced microscopy applications. The design of the microscope is such that super-resolution 3D images may be rapidly obtained and constructed. Live or fixed cells may be imaged.

Media Component
The DeltaVision OMX is an advanced, multimode super-resolution microscope system offering the Blaze SIM Module for dynamic, high speed 3D-SIM.

Key features include:
• Multiple illumination modalities
· Structured illumination 3D SIM
· Advanced TIRF and pK/pA module
· Localization imaging
· Wide-field imaging
• SIM Blaze module for full 3D super-resolution reconstruction
UltimateFocus laser-based hardware autofocus technology
• "Pan and scan" function
• High precision motor-driven stage

Cameras: PCO front illuminated Edge sCMOS x 2. 15-bit, 5.5Mp, 512x512 for 3D-SIM; 1024x1024 for wide-field and TIRF. High speed, low light sensitivity.

Acquisition software: OMX Master Control Workstation (Windows 7)
