Dragonfly Launch - The Game Changer In Confocal Microscopy

July 2016

Abstract: Microscopy is now a routine part of many research projects, fundamental to understanding biological processes or targets like protein localisation, dynamics and function, capturing detail at the sub-cellular scale as well as multi-cellular or whole organisms. In order to study a wide variety of biological mechanisms, using multi-scale model systems, often more than one imaging technique is required according to the biological question you are asking. Each method, for example confocal and TIRFM, will require using more than one microscope solution, and so different preparations needed each time. Typically each system will attain either high-contrast, resolution, speed, or sensitivity at the expense of another, this is especially true for point scanning confocal.

We will introduce Dragonfly, a new high-speed confocal platform which in a single device includes instant confocal, widefield-deconvolution, and simultaneous multi-colour TIRF imaging. This novel solution is driven by new and dedicated software to facilitate the multi-modal imaging through a user friendly interface. The imaging workflow encompasses capture to real-time multi-dimensional rendering and deconvolution, and using our camera technology will demonstrate that contrast, speed, resolution and sensitivity can be all be achieved at the same time. Furthermore, that Dragonfly handles large samples through to subcellular single molecule imaging with ease.

Dr Ann Wheeler, a researcher and core facility manager at the University of Edinburgh, will join the webinar to share her experience of using Dragonfly and the added benefits it offers her and the researchers she supports.
