The quality of the data obtained from fluorescence imaging studies depends on the system of components used to acquire, analyze, and process the fluorescent images. As an alternative to building a system piecemeal, using components from several vendors, TILL Photonics of Gräfelfing, Germany, offers its fully integrated TILLvisION system and software modules for fluorescence imaging.

As the heart of the TILL Photonics' fluorescence imaging product line, the TILLvisION system includes five integrated components: the Polychrome IV excitation light source, an interline frame-transfer camera, a DSP-based imaging system controller board that maintains exact timing during the experiment, TILLvisION 4.0 software, and an imaging workstation.

The basic TILLvisION system offers two main advantages: customizability and speed. Scientists can use the system with Leica, Nikon, Olympus, and Zeiss fluorescent microscopes. The company designs custom epifluorescence condensers to...
