Join us Thurs April 30th at Bio, Tech and Beyond for an evening demo of the LumaScope, an affordable option for fluorescence microscopy which we are pleased to feature as a resource for our start ups. The Lumascope is a low priced, small USB inverted fluorescence microscope. It was conceived and designed by working scientists who realized that a large proportion of the everyday uses of fluorescence microscopy is to check the presence, health, and signal from labeled cells. Traditional inverted scopes are expensive, complicated, and loaded with features that are not required for these tasks. The Lumascope focuses on: portability, small size, ease of use, continuous availability, and low price. Perfect when you can do without the cost and complexity of a typical, full-sized fluorescence microscope.
The Lumascope provides fluorescence and brightfield capability in an inexpensive inverted microscope. Easy routine inspection of cells in slides, plates, and flasks with its high-quality imaging and fast frame-rate. The Lumascope fits on your desk, inside Faraday cages, tissue culture hoods, or incubators (with remote image monitoring and basic control capability).
