Dr. Daniel Colón-Ramos collaborates in the development of a novel addition to Nikon's inverted microscope

The RCMI Program congratulates Dr. Daniel Colón-Ramos, associate professor of Cell Biology at Yale University, for his work and collaboration towards the development of a novel addition to Nikon's inverted microscope.

 

 

 

 

The Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (Ti-diSPIM) system is 30 times faster than current confocal microscopes, and has a higher resolution and induces less photodamaging. Developmnt work was performed in collaboration with Dr. Hari Shroff, intramural investigator at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.

 

The RCMI Program congratulates Dr. Daniel Colón-Ramos, associate professor of Cell Biology at Yale University, for his work and collaboration towards the development of a novel addition to Nikon's inverted microscope.Reseacrh activities to identify improvements to the Ti-diSPIM system were partially supported by the RCMI Program and the Institute of Neurobiology at the UPR Medical Sciences Campus and have been acknowledgement in the publications describing this novel instrumentation and its biological applications.

 

The Ti-DiSPIM was unveil by Nikon Instruments Inc. at Cell Biology 2014 (see link to press release below). The system will be available in Spring 2015.

Congratulations to Dr. Colón-Ramos and his team for this outstanding achievement!
