New wide-field light microscope

 "" PHOTO — Factors affect patient visit length.

Scientists at the UC Davis Center for Biophotonics Science and Technology have installed the first commercial version of the world's highest resolution wide-field light microscope. The microscope, called OMX for Optical Microscopy Experimental, allows cellular processes to be viewed at the smallest possible levels and as they occur, providing significant advantages to researchers seeking to understand and treat disease. UC San Francisco professors John Sedat and David Agard developed the OMX. UC Davis was chosen as the first site for the technology because of the biophotonics center's use of light-based technology to solve major obstacles in the life sciences and medicine.
