Hardware:

  • Our DeltaVision Elite Imaging System includes:
  • Olympus iX81 stand with GEHC modifications
  • Motorized XY stage and focus stagetop
  • Solid-state fluorescence illumination with fast shutters
  • Incubation enclosure
  • PCO-edge sCMOS camera
  • SoftWorx aquisition software

Filters:

Not sure which fluorophores will work best? Use an online spectra viewer (see Links) or contact Wendy.

This system has three multiband polychroic mirrors paired with excitation and emission filters that are housed in filterwheels. The polychromatic mirros are:

  • DAPI / FITC / TRITC / Cy5 = "D/F/TRITC/Cy5"
  • DAPI / FITC (or GFP)/ mCherry / Cy5 = "D/F/mCherry/Cy5"
  • CFP / YFP / mCherry = "C/Y/mCh"

Objectives:

Mag. NA

Immersion Medium

DIC Corrections **Scaling (um/pixel)
10x 0.40 Air -- Plan Fluor 0.668
20x 0.75 Air -- UPlanSApo 0.331
60x 1.42 Oil -- PlanApo N 0.108
100x 1.4 Oil -- UPlanSApo 0.065

** These values work well for making scale bars. When performing careful distance measurements, it is best practice to confirm the calibration for the exact setup you use.

Sample holders:

All objectives expect a #1.5 glass coverslip.

Stage plates Compatible Sample holders
Repeatable multi-insert stage Slides, LabTek II chambers, 35mm dishes
Stage ring Other formats, including portions of multiwell plates

Software:

To view files in lab, many users like to use Fiji (ImageJ) with the BioFormats plugin for importing the .dv file. See our Links page to download.
