Microscopic Time-lapse Services

Time-lapse microscopy emerges as a tool to closely observe the microscopic changes in the field of Nanotechnology, Pathology & Life Sciences. To derive sound conclusions, maximum data should be collected during the period of testing & to quickly showcase these microscopic changes over time, time-lapse videos prove to be the best solution.

With Nikon DSLR mounted on a light microscope connected to OpticVyu system to capture images in every 1min & upload to cloud server in real-time for remote monitoring & observation, a number of microscope setups containing different specimen can be monitored through a single dashboard from any part of the world at any point in time.

Applications of Time-lapse Microscopy

  • Cellular structure & growth
  • Blood & Sputum Microscopy
  • Immunohistochemistry in cancer research
  • Study & behavior of Nanoparticles/Nanostructures
  • Research in Biotechnology
  • Pathology: Study of Anatomical changes in diseased tissue
  • Studying Protein in Cells
  • pharmaceutical studies
  • In vitro fertilisation (IVF)

Mounting DSLR on Light Microscope For Time-lapse Microscopy

OpticVyu microscopic time-lapse solution includes supplying DSLR cameras, set-top box & web platform to laboratories having optical microscope already in place. Once the system is integrated, authorized officials can log in & check the real-time images & auto-generated time-lapse videos for multiple setups.

  • Contact OpticVyu & purchase the Nikon DSLR & set-top box for connecting microscopic visuals with OpticVyu cloud servers.
  • The DSLR will be preset to Auto Focus & Aperture Priority Mode adjusted to a suitable f/d. Supply power to the set-top box & insert LAN cable for internet connectivity.
  • Log in to the OpticVyu dashboard to check if the camera is capturing images & is uploading to the OpticVyu server. If not, contact an OpticVyu executive.
  • Once it is ready, set-up the microscope & focus clearly on the specimen using coarse & fine focus knobs & eyepiece lenses.
  • Now remove one of the eye-piece lenses (preferable from the vertical eye-piece tube) & place the DSLR camera on the tube. If images are not clear, rotate the horizontal dial on the camera body to change the aperture until a clear picture is captured.
  • Check the OpticVyu dashboard to see the images uploaded every minute.
  • You may customize a time-lapse video for a specific period of time or wait until a default time-lapse is created.
