(Scientific Article) The Argo-SIM highlighted in Photonics

The Argo-SIM is highlighted in a recent article, published in Photonics. This paper presents a detailed study evaluating the performance of Airyscan technology as compared to conventional confocal microscopy. By imaging one of the many Argo-SIM fluorescent test pattern, the authors, from the University of Oxford, show that the processed Airyscan images at default deconvolution settings have a spatial resolution similar to that of conventional confocal imaging with a pinhole setting of 0.2 Airy Units, but with a significantly improved signal-to-noise-ratio.

MC 2017 is being conducted under the auspices of the European Microscopy Society (EMS) as an EMS extension event, open to contributions from anywhere around the globe. The scientific program features three main topical areas addressing advances in instrumentation, life and material sciences. Each main topic is split into seven thematic sessions covering invited and contributed talks as well as poster sessions. In addition to the core scientific program, an industrial exhibition, a conference dinner, plenary lectures, and award ceremonies in conjunction with award lectures will round off the...

Argolight now distributing GATTAquant products in France

Argolight is broadening its range of solutions for fluorescence microscopes: now distributing GATTAquant products in France.   In order to complete the range of products available to his customers, Argolight has been looking for innovative and reliable tools for super-resolution systems dedicated to quality monitoring.   Argolight is glad to be now distributing GATTAquant products in France, as it fits in a comprehensive approach to support all aspects of easy quality control for fluorescence microscopes.   We would like to thank again all the GATTAquant team for their trust, we believe it is the start of a relevant partnership, as both companies and their customers will benefit from a wider network, knowledge and support.       About GATTAquant: GATTAquant, founded in Germany in September 2014, is a spin-off company of the Technical University of Braunschweig in the field of super-resolution imaging. The company specialises in nanoscaled standards for super-resolution systems. They have been used by companies such as Leica Microsystems, Hamamatsu or Scientific Volume Imaging....
