Automatic objective change
Up to now in Light Sheet microscopy, in case there is a need for an objective change, this has to be made manually. This consumes a lot of time and creates a need for new alignment as well as trained personnel. In case there is a need of an automatic change in the magnification of the image, all available systems use zoom lenses but this leads to a great loss in N/A and therefore the quality of the image is decreased. In the QLS-scope the sheet is not fixed so it is possible to change the objectives automatically without losing anything of the N/A of the corresponding objective. In the video below we present how the user can change the objectives of the system:
We only use a zoom lens in the case that the user needs water objective.
