Time-lapse movies of a cellular “heaven and hell,” a dividing crane fly sperm cell and the early development of muscle cells were recognized with the top three awards in the American Society for Cell Biology’s Celldance “Really Useful” Cell Biology Video Contest for 2013.
Users of the Phasefocus Lens Profiler have highlighted how a lack of industry data can make it difficult to understand the clinical performance characteristics of soft contact lenses.
The Phase Focus Virtual Lens®, a digital replacement for a microscope’s conventional image-forming optics, has been judged one of the ten best microscopy innovations in the 2013 Microscopy Today Innovation Award competition. The award was accepted by Professor John Rodenburg, Phase Focus’s co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer, at a presentation ceremony at the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2013 Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Phase Focus Limited is pleased to announce the successful delivery and installation of a Lens Profiler Instrument to the Brien Holden Vision Institute in Sydney, Australia; one of the worlds leading applied vision correction research institutes.
Scientists have characterised the application of the Phase Focus Virtual Lens® technology in electron microscopy as “disruptive”, commenting that the ability to generate high contrast without the use of potentially damaging stains “will revolutionise the way that electron microscopy is applied in the life sciences.”
The technique behind the Phase Focus Virtual lens®, known in the academic literature as ptychography, is being rapidly adopted as an important tool in X-ray microscopy, adding to its existing applications at electron and visible light wavelengths.
The publication entitled “Ptychography – a label free, high-contrast imaging technique for live cells using quantitative phase information” was published in Nature Scientific Reports today.
