Dive into the unseen with Luminesys

An illustrated one-to-one comparison between Luminesys and conventional supports

MICROARRAYS

 

False color images of AF647-labelled streptavidin spots deposited in five distinct dilutions (1, 2, 4, 20 and 100x) and detected using a Molecular Devices Genepix 4400A scanner. The left picture is obtained on a standard glass slide, while the right picture is recorded on a Luminesys slide.

IMMUNO FLUORESCENCE

 

Three-channel composite images (red, green and blue) of mice intestine tissues. The experiment compares the performance achieved on a standard glass slide (right) and a Luminesys slide (left) in identical imaging conditions (excitation power and exposure time). Recorded using a Nikon Eclipse LV100ND microscope.

FISH

 

Three-channel composite images (red, green and blue) of mice skin tissues. The experiment compares the performance achieved on a standard glass slide (left) and a Luminesys slide (right) in identical imaging conditions (excitation power and exposure time). Recorded using a Nikon Eclipse LV100ND microscope.

FISH stands for Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization.

 

PHASE CONTRAST

 

Bright field images of 5µm-thick mice intestine tissues. The image on Luminesys slide (left) is obtained in epi-configuration (reflection) and the image on the standard slide (right) is obtained in transmission mode. Recorded using a Nikon Eclipse LV100ND microscope.

DARK FIELD

 

Dark field images of 10µm-thick palatine tonsil microsections, with a focus on a vein containing red blood cells. The left picture was obtained on a standard glass slide, while the picture on the right was obtained on a Luminesys support. Recorded on a Nikon Optiphot microscope.
