The UC2 Professional- STORM is a widefield fluorescence microscope. Based on the remarkable UC2 cubes, super resolution microscopy just got accessible! The UC2 modular design is a groundbreaking system that revolutionizes how you construct optical systems. UC2 STORM allows for widefield and fluorescence laser microscopy, while also offering dSTORM integration for resolutions beyond 1 µm. The LABmaker series of UC2 Professional instruments connects cubes through plates milled from solid aluminum instead of the original UC2 plastic puzzle pieces. Instruments are mounted on a standard M6/25 mm optical breadboard.
The UC2 STORM is a versatile microscope capable of widefield fluorescence microscopy, standard immunofluorescence microscopy, live-cell microscopy, and long-term live-cell microscopy assays.
