News: Imaging of fluorescent latex beads

After finishing very late yesterday2012-11-29_Beads_MMImages evening, we proudly present our first image taken with the new setup. Nothing very interesting, just some aggregated, fluorescent latex-beads on a cover slip surface imaged into blue, green and red detection channels of an emCCD camera (after excitation with a green laser). A big thank you goes to John for the laser control software!

Now its time to prepare some buffers, get the oxygen scavenger system working, and image some DNA FRET standards.
