Notice Abstract

The agency is looking to purchase an inverted Fluorescent Microscope with Camera of compact design for normal benchtop use. Essential requirements are as follows: Light illumination by LED for white light source and broader fluorescence excitation, preferably with brightfield capability and a minimum requirement for 4 fluorescence filter cubes that cover the visible light range. The microscope must have a motorized stage with broad vessel compatibility (including slides and plates), a range of objectives, including 10x, 20x and 40x, and automated focusing capability (preferably hardware based). Camera and imaging software must be user friendly. Additional features that we are also looking for include: flexibility to add filters in the future, multi-channel fluorescence imaging capability, potential for automation/high throughput screening, long working distance lenses and potential for micro-dispensing. Time lapse capability (incl. environmental chamber and CO2) and software image analysis capability (e.g. bar graphs/histograms or scatter plots), would also be desirable features.
