Rapid Automated Modular Microscope System (RAMM)

Rapid Automated Modular Microscope System (RAMM)

Modular Design for Rapid Automation Development

RAMM Features

  • Featuring automated high-speed XY stages, precision piezo & motorized Z focusing, and a wide range of scanning options
  • Configurable with infinity-corrected optics, dichroic filter cubes, multi-wavelength excitation and emission filterwheels, shutters, and detectors including cameras and photomultipliers
  • Auto-focus, focus stabilization, tracker, and robotic specimen loader available
  • Arrangement provides a solid platform for high throughput screening, genetic sequencing, experimental research, and much more
  • Designed for flexible cost-effective OEM development using high quality high MTBF components to reduce cost and increase customer satisfaction

System Customization

ASI’s RAMM system can be used with our MS-2000 Stages, FW-1000 Filterwheels, and other items. Custom optical systems can be configured using our Modular Infinity Microscope.
