Crest CARVII™Applications and Images

Time lapse

Using any recommended imaging software and camera, time lapse imaging of cells or organisms can be performed for long periods of time without significant bleaching or phototoxicity. Depending on the speed of the cellular event being measured, and the installed Crest CARV II components, time lapse at a single plane or at multiple planes (4D) can be imaged.
