Focal Drift Compensation - Live Cell Imaging with Automatic Focus
- Read Whitepaper
The ability to consistently produce accurately focused images is essential for any life science research project utilising microscopy. For this reason, Olympus provides the IX81-ZDC2 microscope system, which combines the IX81 frame with the ZDC2 Z-Drift compensation module to ensure that every image you capture is in focus.
The system is designed for both short- and long-term live cell experiments, with users able to employ either a ‘continuous' or ‘one-shot' focusing mode. Automatic focal adjustments counteract the effects of thermal drift and increase the accuracy of time-lapse and multi-image experiments. The manipulation of samples mid-experiment can also be carried out. By combining the system with the cellSens Dimension software suite, experiments can be planned and executed, with a level of automation that is truly ‘set and forget'.
