High Dynamic and Precision in All Three Directions in Space: Positioning Systems for Genome Sequencing

The Sequencing-by-Synthesis method, also known as Solexa-Illumina-method, is the most widespread method among all Next-Generation-Sequencing methods (NGS). It was used to identify the RNA fingerprint of the SARS-COV2 virus in January 2020 in a research institute in Wuhan. Dynamic and precise motion and positioning systems are crucial for the "Sequencing-by-Synthesis" genome sequencing method.

Flamingo Light Sheet Microscopes Rely on Drives from PI

Precise Sample Positioning is Crucial for Conclusive Images

Lightsheet microscopy (LSFM) is a powerful platform for in vivo imaging offering low phototoxicity and fast image acquisition. The Flamingo project from Professor Dr. Jan Huisken, Research Group Leader and Director of the Medical Engineering Department at Morgridge Institute for Research in Madison, WI, aims to make this technology easily available to researchers.
