We expect image sensors to have a relatively flat response, but the results can be surprising–here’s some real measurements.
A uranyl microscope slide provides spatially uniform fluorescence, enabling flat-fielding/normalization of the illumination and optical system at once.
Measured LED and camera timing indicates good synchronization without too much wasted LED on time.
Using a Basler Dart camera with Pylon 5 in Python, the team acquires image series and verifies timing via oscilloscope.
The team learns about background of microscopy and cytometry from the 13th century through recent research.
Noting Bill Gates’ article on profound number of fatalities from malaria.
We are delighted to announce our project team for the open source cytometer has been selected and assembled.
