GE Healthcare this week introduced its new DeltaVision OMX Blaze research microscopy system designed for the imaging of live cells.

The system allows researchers to follow tagged proteins in the same living cell, over time, in three-dimensional space at a near molecular resolution, the company said. It is being installed at several early adopter sites globally that are expected to go live in the next two months.


LI-COR this week introduced its new CLx Infrared Imaging System for Western blot imaging.
