ISSAQUAH, Wash., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Precision(R), Inc. a
leading provider of imaging, measurement, and analysis systems for the life
sciences industries announced today that it will introduce a new imaging
system at the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) annual conference with
twice the resolution of traditional microscopes. The DeltaVision|OMX(TM)
system is based on the OMX microscopy system developed by scientists at the
University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and exclusively licensed to
Applied Precision. The DeltaVision|OMX system solves two fundamental
limitations that have frustrated scientists, spatial and temporal resolution.
DeltaVision|OMX overcomes spatial resolution limits by using 3D-SIM(TM) true
structured illumination technology invented by a UCSF team led by Drs. Sedat,
Agard, and Gustafsson that doubles the optical resolution of light microscope.
Equally important, DeltaVision|OMX also overcomes speed limitations for
cellular imaging by using novel electronics and optics developed by the same
team at UCSF. "DeltaVision|OMX represents a tremendous step forward in the
imaging and analysis of biological samples," reported Paul Goodwin, Technical
Fellow and Senior Product Line Manager at Applied Precision. "We are thrilled
to have the opportunity to bring this enabling technology to the life sciences
community," said Joe Victor, President at Applied Precision. Ron Seubert, CEO
at Applied Precision added: "We are privileged to have the opportunity to
commercialize a technology where every image that is acquired reveals details
that have never been seen before."
Over the past year, Applied Precision has built, delivered, and installed
six early adopter DeltaVision|OMX systems into leading laboratories in the US,
Canada, and UK. These systems are aiding scientists studying HIV, neurological
disease, cancer, DNA repair, gene regulation, and a host of other diseases and
mechanisms. Applied Precision is displaying the production version of
DeltaVision|OMX at the ASCB conference, December 13-17 in San Francisco. The
production model includes a compact industrial design, additional options for
illumination, and new software features such as the softWoRx DMS(TM) data
management software developed in collaboration with Glencoe Software, Inc. and
based on the open protocol OMERO technology developed by the Open Microscopy
Environment (OME) consortium.
Applied Precision will also introduce important new capabilities for its
DeltaVision Core and personalDV products including microtiter plate
capability, new laser based applications, and solid state illumination
