Drosphila brain (Epi-fluorescence observation)

[fig.]

Individual olfactory nerve cells in a drosophila expressing a GFP-membrane marker are clearly resolved as black bodies encircled by fluorescent membranes (see circled area). This image demonstrates the SMZ25's incredible high resolution as the olfactory cells are typically only ø5μm in diameter

Zebrafish (Epi-fluorescence observation with OCC illumination)

[fig.]

A single motor neuron expressing clusters of GFP-glycine receptors (resolved as individual puncta along the cell body and processes) imaged in a live zebrafish

C. elegans embryos (Epi-fluorescence observation)

[fig.]

Time-lapse imaging of developing C. elegans embryos expressing RFP-histones and GFP-membrane markers allows researchers to screen for cytokinesis mutants prior to selection for downstream applications
