GE Healthcare DeltaVision LIVE High Resolution Deconvolution Microscope


The GE Healthcare Deconvolution (Restoration) Microscope is engineered to provide high contrast and high resolution at low light levels. The environmental chamber provides a temperature controlled, humidified environment with defined CO2 levels. Microscope capabilities include Z-sectioning and 3D reconstruction, time series capture for following cellular events, determining co-localization of multiple proteins and/or dyes and FRAP.
