Based in Shanghai, Huida Gene is a biopharmaceutical organisation that develops and produces therapeutics such as gene replacement and gene editing for rare single-gene disorders and chronic diseases.
In this application example, scientists used the CoolLED pE-800 on a Nikon ECLIPSE Ni-E microscope to scan tissue sections in order to determine the location of lesions. Cell climbing sheets were also imaged to count the cells and check their status. Multi-channel imaging was performed to visualise the nucleus with DAPI, the cytoskeleton with Alexa Fluor 488 and the mitochondria with Mitotrack Red.
What did Huida Gene like about the CoolLED pE-800?
- Choice of eight wavelengths
- Fast switching speeds (< 7 µs is possible using TTL)
- Impressive brightness and signal-to-noise for the 385 nm/470 nm/560 nm/590 nm channels used
- The 740 nm LED is a very useful for imaging in the NIR
