GE Healthcare DeltaVision OMX 3D-SIM


The DeltaVision OMX is a 3D structured illumination microscope (3D-SIM) designed to provide a highly stable, multi-channel imaging platform for advanced microscopy applications. The design of the microscope is such that super-resolution 3D images may be rapidly obtained and constructed. Live or fixed cells may be imaged.
