High Resolution Imaging of Unstained and Fluorescent specimens
The VS120 Darkfield LED illuminator was specifically designed to solve a difficult problem for researchers; how to observe the morphological characteristics of unstained, fluorescent or DAB stained specimens with the advantages of a virtual slide. The VS120 is the first microscope based virtual slide system to offer this capability, making the system a robust option for researchers requiring the use of different imaging modalities.
The Olympus VS120 Darkfield illuminator is built into a 1-slide insert plate that can simply be attached to the stage of any VS110 or VS120 Virtual Slide System. An array LED illuminator light enters through the side of the slide glass, creating a total internal reflection in the glass and the camera observers the scattered light from the specimen. The darkfield images can easily be used in conjuction with brightfield or fluorescence images for a deeper understanding of both structure and function. An automated scanning can be completed easily through the VS-ASW scanning software. The VS120 Darkfield Illuminator works especially well with higher N.A obejctitives, 20x and 40x.
