MuVi in SCIENCE publication

The MuVi SPIM was used in a Science publication in July 2020 (Vol 369, Issue 6500). The article is titled “Contact area–dependent cell communication and the morphological invariance of ascidian embryogenesis” by Lea Guignard Abstract Marine invertebrate ascidians display embryonic reproducibility: Their early embryonic cell lineages are considered invariant and are conserved between distantly related…

RCM installed at NCBS Bangaluru

The first Re-Scan Confocal(RCM) from Confocal.nl was installed and successfully handed over at the prestigious National Centre for Biological Centre (TIFR-NCBS) Bangaluru. The RCM was installed on a Nikon Inverted Ti2E Microscope at Prof. Vardharajan Sudaramurthy’s Lab. The researchers are excited to see great improvement in image-resolution with the ease of controlling RCM through NIS elements software and high resolution…

Comparing RCM with traditional Confocal Imaging

Comparison of RCM with wide-field and confocal imaging In order to demonstrate the image improvement by RCM, we have made images of the same cell from deer skin fibroblast sample using wide-field, conventional confocal microscope and RCM. The image taken by RCM we have further improved using deconvolution. Comparison of performance of RCM and a PMT…
