TechConnect Innovation Program

Combined light sheet fluorescence and DIC microscope

University of Oregon, OR, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The inventors created a microscope that performs light sheet fluorescence and differential interference contrast.

Primary Application Area: Instrumentation & Manufacturing

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The microscope developed by the UO inventors combines LSFM and DIC integrated into one microscope. This microscope is highly useful for biological imaging due to its merger of highly specific three-dimensional fluorescence imaging and context-providing non-fluorescence imaging.
