Introducing the Tilt-RM
One issue that is inherent in every light sheet imaging system is “striping.” This occurs when something interferes with the incoming light sheet (debris in the sample chamber for example). This then causes a stripe in the light sheet. To reduce this striping, the Tilt-RM introduces a resonance scanning mirror in the light path as […]
What’s in a Name
Turn your telescope upside down and you’ll have a microscope. It was January 2017, and the company was ready to come to life, with production already going on and the first sales lined up. Only one last thing was missing: a company name. Of course Paul (Paul Maddox, president and founder of the Mizar Imaging) […]
An interview with Dr. Paul Maddox
In today’s installment of the “working from my basement” series of videos, we do two things. First off, we have a conversation with Dr. Paul Maddox, president and founder of Mizar Imaging and Associate Professor at UNC Chapel Hill and learn how the Tilt light sheet imaging system came into being and why other, existing […]
How to mount samples for imaging with the Tilt light sheet imaging system
In today’s installment of the “Working from my basement” series of video tutorials, we are going to look at what you need to consider when mounting samples to be imaged with the Tilt light sheet imaging system. We will cover the types of imaging chambers you should use and how to properly prepare you samples […]
Multimodal Imaging made easy with the Tilt light sheet imaging system
Today we are going to explore “multimodal” imaging and see how the Tilt can be used to easily turn almost any microscope into a multimodal imaging system.
How the Tilt works – An understanding of L.I.T.E.
Welcome. This is the first of our “Working from my Basement” series of video tutorials on the Tilt light sheet imaging system. We are going to start from the beginning and take a look at the technology behind the Tilt, which is known as L.I.T.E. or Lateral Interference Tilted Excitation. This technology was developed by […]
Imaging During a Pandemic
During this COVID-19 global pandemic, we at Mizar Imaging are doing our part to maintain social distancing. We are all working from home and spending more time with our families. Our hearts go out to the vast multitudes of people infected and the families of those who have succumbed to this terrible disease. While we […]
A New Angle on Lightsheet Microscopy
All too often we encounter a scientist who believes their sample is “too small”, or the detail they need to resolve “too fine”, for a lightsheet microscope. Or worse yet, we never encounter them because they never even consider lightsheet microscopy as an option for their imaging because of their preconceived notions on what lightsheet […]
Better Science Through Imaging
Mizar Imaging president and co-founder, Dr Paul Maddox gave a presentation at the ASCB annual meeting. Take a look to learn more about how the Tilt can improve your science through better imaging.
Thick Specimen Sample Prep Recommendations for the Tilt
Thick specimen sample prep for the Tilt light sheet is straightforward. Follow these sample prep recommendations to learn how to prepare thick specimens (things like embryos, tissue sections, whole mounts, etc) for light sheet imaging with the Tilt. Thick Specimen Sample Prep: Something to Keep in Mind When preparing your thick specimens for imaging on […]
