Life Through A Lens: MRC scientists to develop new giant lens

The microscope is designed for the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. The team, led by Dr. William Amos, FRS, has developed the microscope as a response to a need for more research to examine more tissue samples, especially the first stage embryos of mice genetically modified. These embryos 6 mm play a crucial step for the identification of future treatments for diseases such as. Microscopes with the current can be a time consuming process, but with the Mesolens, researchers can now instantly view these embryosVisitors to health facilities:
Before entering the hospital or health care to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water. If possible, use an alcohol gel.
If I do not feel well, especially if you have diarrhea, stay away from health facilities.

Medical Research Council scientists have developed a microscope objective with a giant, known as the Mesolens , which can screen thousands of cells and the detail within each cell at the same time. The microscope has been announced by scientists as a revolutionary and could change the way researchers look at living cells in the laboratory.

We worked for over twenty years the development of new optical systems for biomedical research. Our new microscope opens up many new possibilities for displaying large amounts of living tissue without sacrificing clarity or lose the ability to perceive depth, which was a big problem with current microscopes.

We hope that researchers will be able to benefit from this new technology next year.
