NatX-ray commercializes a Visualization Bench, An automated inverted microscope for:
The Visualization Bench (ref.: PRT007)
This fully motorized inverted miscroscope is designed fo the analysis of micro-plates.
Equipped with motorized zoom, front and back LEDs for sample lightening, it is controlled
through a user friendly graphical interface.
- Plate Screening
- Crystal Listing
This new instruments presents two important functions:
This makes the in situ experiments much faster, with no need anymore for the
user to center crystals one by one in the X-ray beam.
- The Plate Screening function will give the possibility to take images in a row
of all or part of the drops in a micro-plate. Fix depth or auto-focus modes are available.
- The Crystal Listing function, based on a shape recognition image analysis,
gives the possibility to save the accurate coordinates (better than 5 Ám)
of selected crystals or positions (see picture) into a database.
These coordinates can be used for:
- Image screening of selected crystals or positions for crystal growth investigation.
- In Situ X-ray analysis apparatus such as CATS or G-Rob can go sequentially
through the different crystals, in order to collect data on them automatically.
