Lumazone Dark Box Manual Imaging System

Lumazone Dark BoxLumazone logo

The Lumazone Dark Box system is a cost-effective solution for basic macroscopic imaging applications. The Dark Box configuration includes a manual stage and provides the ability to automatically acquire brightfield images. Researchers can satisfy their particular resolution, sensitivity, and speed requirements by selecting one of four back-illuminated CCD or EMCCD cameras featuring various sensor array formats, pixel sizes, and readout rates.

Primary Applications

  • Gene expression in plants
  • Tissue-specific gene expression in animals
  • Gene expression in isolated-cell preparations
  • Study of etiological agents and mechanisms
  • Visualization of dermatological diseases
  • Investigation of circadian rhythms in plants and animals
  • Cancer biology (e.g., drug treatment efficacy, metastasis studies, preventative drug regimes)
  • Plant development studies
