Rapid Automated Modular Microscope System (RAMM)

Rapid Automated Modular Microscope System (RAMM)

Modular Design for Rapid Automation Development

RAMM Features

  • Automated high-speed XY stages, precision piezo and motorized Z focusing, and a wide range of scanning options
  • Configurable with infinity-corrected optics, dichroic filter cubes, multi-wavelength excitation and emission filter wheels, shutters, and detectors including cameras and photomultipliers
  • Autofocus, focus stabilization, and tracker available
  • Arrangement provides a solid platform for high throughput screening, genetic sequencing, experimental research amongothers implementations
  • Designed for flexible 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 Filter Wheels, and other items. Custom optical systems can be configured using our Modular Infinity Microscope.
