The Bruker microfluidics unit can be used with Vutara to address any localization microscopy application where a large number of targets needs to be imaged. Fifteen probe vials are provided, and the system allows probe vials to be interchanged during experiments, thus allowing an unlimited number of targets.
Example localization microscopy applications:
- DNA PAINT
- Multiplexed antibody labelling
- Refresh STORM
The Bruker microfluidics unit is also compatible with the Opterra confocal for serial labelling confocal applications.
