University Upgrades live-cell imaging system

4th March 2013

Ahe DeltaVision family of live-cell imaging systems, supplied by Image Solutions (UK) Ltd is helping to ensure that the College of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, Scotland, maintains its premier position in Scotland for life sciences research. Presently there are seven DeltaVision systems that form the heart of Dundee's College of Life Sciences Light Microscope Facility (LMF). Established six years ago, Dundee's LMF is extensively used by researchers at the 'cutting edge' of life sciences research for investigating the biochemical and genetic mechanisms behind such diseases as cancer, diabetes, tropical disease and rheumatoid arthritis.

As part of a new Wellcome Trust award forming the new Wellcome Trust Center for Gene regulation and Expression, 4 of the existing DeltaVisions have been upgraded to the latest DeltaVision model, and a new DV core system has been recently installed following further investment from the Trust.

The newest innovation in the DeltaVision family of live cell microscopy systems, DeltaVision Core, is designed to enable scientists to image live samples over much longer periods of time and allows for imaging of live and fixed samples with greater speed and with significant improvements to signal over noise. Personal DeltaVision is designed for users who have similarly high demands in image quality without the requirement for system flexibility.
