DMi8 S Platform
For routine to live cell research
Inverted Microscope Solution DMi8 S Platform
The modular DMi8 inverted microscope is the heart of the DMi8 S platform solution. For routine to live cell research, the DMi8 S platform is a complete solution. Whether you need to precisely follow the development of a single cell in a dish, screen through multiple assays, obtain single molecule resolution, or tease out behaviors of complex processes, a DMi8 S system will enable you to see more, see faster, and find the hidden.
See more – Increase your viewing area up to 10,000x
See faster – Experiments up to 5x faster
See the hidden – Activate, ablate, and bleach within one experiment
Fully configurable with manual to motorized components, the DMi8 microscope allows you to create the ideal imaging system for your research and budget needs.
Flexibility is built-in, allowing you to add established best-in-class options like DIC for unstained samples and Intelligent Automation. For time-lapse experiments use superb focus control with Adaptive Focus Control and Closed Loop Focus.
DMi8 S for advanced widefield research
Starting from discovery and analysis of single molecules and culminating in breakthroughs in understanding and treating human health, the key to the next scientific discovery lies in finding the missing links connecting your data.
The DMi8 S is a complete solution for advanced widefield research. The new DMi8 S platform extends the flexibility of the DMi8 microscope, adding revolutionary high speed control, Infinity TIRF and Infinity Scanner modules, plus unrivaled software capabilities to create the ultimate advanced live cell imaging solution.
"The DMi8 S is a versatile and userfriendly system that empowers biomedical researchers to probe molecular machineries within the cell with super-resolution, photo-manipulation and optogenetics." - Dr. Alessandro Esposito, Hutchison MRC Research Centre, University of Cambridge, UK
