ENTER RetroZED FOR Z-STACKING WITH YOUR DSLR CAMERA......
Another new Bunton product is called RetroZED (z-axis extended depth). This modular Z-drive connects to just about any coaxial fine focus drive .... upright or inverted microscopes. Main mission: Automated Z-stacking. Dr. Brian Matsumoto was kind enough to submit the great diatom photomicrographs you see below. The first set are single focal plane views of the top and bottom of the 3D diatom structure. He also shows the girdle profile of the diatom! An Olympus BX 51 microscope with 40x DIC objective was used. The second photomicrograph illustrates the fantastic power of EDF (extended depth of focus). The completed stack is composed of about 40 individual focal planes spaced 1 micron apart. Sub-micron stepping of the fine focus is easily achieved for smaller structures when using RetroZED.
We use the Cognisys Stackshot controller and either Zerene Stacker or Helicon Focus software. It is designed for use with modern consumer DSLR and MILC large format cameras. Some of today's large format cameras have sensors the same size as a frame of 35mm photo film .... 43mm diagonal. Megapixel performance of about 50MP is available at a reasonable price. A Panasonic S1r full frame digital camera was used by Dr. Matsumoto for capturing the images you see here. The basic RetroZed kit (less software and camera) is under $800.00. This includes the controller, power supply, cable, cable Z-drive and stand plus the simple connector to use the system on just about any fine focus knob. Different diameter, interchangeable "gripper cups" are available for a nominal price. No tools needed. Go to YouTube and search: Matsu Imaging Diatom Video

NEW EYETRACKING TECHNOLOGY OPTION
MICROFLUIDICS research and drug development labs around the world are entering this interesting field of study. They all use a microscope optical system and we have what you need in the way of SOFTWARE, high speed global shutter cameras and LED illumination. We offer the MHS (Slovenia) upright macroscope as a turn-key microfluidics optical system. Large field of view, long working distance optics, flicker-free LED illumination and options for high magnification and EPIFLUORESCENCE with our own filter cube module and LED fluorescence light source.
We can offer the correct high speed camera and easy-to-use software (Windows only) for realtime recording of your cells flying through the channels of your fluidic device. Check out our Youtube demo of the MHS Microscope and view further details IN THE NEXT SECTION: "DIGITAL IMAGING SOLUTIONS"
ADD MICROFLUIDIC CAMERA TECHNOLOGY TO YOUR EXISTING MICROSCOPE OR CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS OR A QUOTATION
CAMERA AND SOFTWARE IS UNDER $2,500.00....free two week trial session in your lab. Contact me for details.
THE IMAGE BELOW WAS STACKED USING OUR RETRO-ZED FINE FOCUS AND COGNISYS STACKSHOT CONTROLLER WITH SOFTWARE FROM ZERENE.....ALL MADE IN THE USA. THANKS GO OUT TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER, DR. BRIAN MATSUMOTO IN SANTA BARBARA
WE CAN ALSO HELP YOU FABRICATE YOUR OWN PHOTOMACRO/MICRO SUPPORT STAND ARRANGEMENT BY USING THE COGNISYS (USA) STACKSHOT RAIL WITH OUR OWN SAMPLE STAGE ATTACHED. THIS COULD THEN BE SECURED TO YOUR EXISTING MACRO SUPPORT STAND OR EVEN USED WITH YOUR EXISTING STACKSHOT RAIL AND CONTROLLER THAT NORMALLY WOULD MOVE THE CAMERA RATHER THAN THE SUBJECT. CONTACT US FOR DETAILS OR QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
CONVERT AN UPRIGHT MICROSCOPE STAND FOR USE WITH INFINITY CORRECTED OBJECTIVES AND THE INFINITY PHOTO OPTICAL KC (USA) FOR IMPROVED Z-STEP RESOLUTION IN THE SUB-MICRON RANGE. CHECK OUT OUR YOUTUBE DEMO WHERE WE HACKSAW AN OLYMPUS BX STAND TO USE THE FINE FOCUS STAND AND SUBSTAGE CONDENSERS FOR CONTRAST ENHANCED (PHASE, DARKFIELD, FLUORESCENCE AND POL) MICROSCOPY AND Z-STACKING METHODS
RetroZED is now available for use with your existing compound microscope with fine focus drive. The kit includes the Z-drive (with stepper motor), gripper cup (various sizes as required), cables and control unit. $775.00 includes the Cognisys STACKSHOT controller. Sub-MICRON stepping is possible. NEW: Details are now available for using RetroZED in the study of AGING BIOLOGY that involves budding yeast cells and MICROFLUIDICS along with a digital camera, Arduino technology and free-ware.
