Short on time but need to acquire your images right away?

 

Need an image in a hurry but either can’t get time on one of our confocals during the day or don’t have time to take them?  The OBC has two ways to help you get the images you need in hurry.

 

1.  Automate your image collecting:   Take advantage of the Zen “positions” feature to set up multiple locations to image Z-stacks or take snap shots on tile. This feature allows you to set as many positions as you need, set the first and last slice for the z-stack and walk away. All the images will be automatically saved, you can come back after all your images are complete or give permission to the next user to log you off so they can begin their imaging. This feature is available on all 2 systems confocals.  Contact Adeela to learn more about the “positions” feature along with other features Zen has to offer.
