In post-secondary and undergraduate biological laboratories, the Desktop microscope and Octopus software combine for interactive exploration of the microscopic environment like no other microscopic system. Instructional capabilities are enhanced with visualization of living microscopic organisms. With no need to focus on the specimen, imaging capabilities of the Desktop are easy to pick up, and it produces real time imaging that keeps students attention.
No need to focus when capturing an image – the real advantage of holography – this enables the Desktop microscope and the Submersible microscope to watch an entire volume with each frame. Hours of personnel time can be saved with specimen analysis, and more data can be retrieved from each collection.
