However, technical difficulties like maintaining live cells on the microscope stage
and the shortage of skilled professionals are likely to be the major roadblocks for the industry.
After training mice to sit quietly on a microscope stage
, the researchers could measure the fluid flow while the rodents were awake and asleep.
The laser movement is controlled by high precision optics, whereas the microscope stage
and the sample are both fixed.
An unbiased counting frame system is available for number estimations of the objects under investigation, and an on-screen manual stepping module for number estimations through the optical fractionator method is also available for the measurement of increments along the X and Y axes of the microscope stage
for the estimation of rat brain hippocampal pyramidal neurons.
The trough was divided into a light (30 ft-c) and a dark (7 ft-c) side by means of a dark gray transparent plastic filter placed under the microscope stage
so as to darken half the trough.
The positions parallel and perpendicular to the front edge of the microscope stage
were located by determining the polarizer setting that produced a maximum and minimum absorbance (A) of the 841 [cm.
Displacement of the captured cell relative to the rest of the sample is then achieved by either moving the microscope stage
or by displacing the laser beam itself (35).
The BioPoint 2, a new XY motorized microscope stage
incorporating the best ergonomic design available on the market, is the latest product innovation from Ludl Electronic Products, Hawthorne, N.
Lulu Xie in Nedergaard's lab trained mice to sit quietly on a microscope stage
while researchers probed their brains.
This slide is placed on the microscope stage
and observed at high power (~400X) as seen in Figure 1.
The slide resides on the microscope stage
while the electronic image is transmitted, allowing up to 64 users to simultaneously review the electronic slide remotely--from anywhere in the world.
These techniques include moving the microscope stage
and using polarization or phase contrast microscopy.
