Applied Precision, along with Indiana University, are excited to announce the installation of a new DeltaVision|OMX imaging system in the Light Microscopy Imaging Center in Bloomington, Indiana.
The DeltaVision|OMX is a ground-breaking, three dimensional, super-resolution microscopy system that more than doubles the optical resolution of traditional light microscopy. This super-resolution capability is especially important to cell biologists and microbiologists seeking to study objects and events that lie beyond the limits of conventional microscopy methods.
"We are thrilled to have Indiana University as a client for our pioneering DeltaVision|OMX system," says Joe Victor, president and CEO of Applied Precision. "Dr. Claire Walczak and the team of researchers at IU are performing the type of cutting-edge research that drives our company's mission of improving lives through the use of advanced imaging solutions."
The Light Microscopy Imaging Center is lead by Executive Director Dr. Claire Walczak, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology in the IU Medical Sciences Program.
"The acquisition of the DeltaVision|OMX system is fantastic for our university," says Walczak. "This super-resolution microscope, one of only 9 in North America, is part of our vision to bring state-of-the-art technology to IU's life science researchers. This will enable them to address questions that they did not have the ability to ask previously due to the lack of appropriate technologies."
In the past year, Applied Precision has sold and installed multiple DeltaVision|OMX platforms in North America, Europe and Asia. "The positive response to DeltaVision|OMX from the scientific community has been overwhelming and they are generating data that was previously out of reach in their research," says Ian Clements, senior product manager at Applied Precision.
"We'd envisioned this device would be most useful for microbiologists, cell biologists and neurobiologists at IU," says Walczak. "But we expect scientists from many other fields will come up with creative ways to take advantage of this ground breaking technology. We have some new things to think about and lots of new things to see."
