abberior offers different embedding media in order to perfectly prepare your sample for imaging, while keeping its structure intact. Minimize aberrations and maximize performance!
abberior offers ready-to-image ALIGNMENT SETS for calibration and testing of fluorescence microscopes. Each set contains several microscope slides – ready-to-image – with nanoparticles and/or cell specimen.
optimal optical conditions and perfectly shaped beams
abberior MOUNT embedding media are embedding media with a refractive index in the range of 1.38. They are very convenient in terms of application and are a perfect match for imaging. Note that, due to evaporation of contained water and polymerization of the embedding medium, the refractive index can change over time.
perfect index matching
abberior TDE mounting media are 2,2′-thiodiethanol based embedding media with refractive indices in the range of 1.408 – 1.518. For many applications, abberior TDE mounting media are superior to aqueous embedding media. Especially for demanding applications such as 4Pi microscopy, 3D STED microscopy or isoSTED microscopy, embedding that is perfectly matched to the refractive index of immersion oil because the refractive index will stay constant over time.
always in perfect shape
Our ALIGNMENT SETS enable testing and calibration of fluorescence microscopes. They contain a range of gold nanoparticles, fluorescence nanoparticles, and cell samples. The fluorescent dyes in our ALIGNMENT SETS are selected to cover the whole spectrum and can be used for a wide range of laser lines in confocal and superresolution STED microscopes.
The abberior AUTOALIGNMENT slide is a ready-to-image slide for alignment of abberior microscopes that are equipped with AUTOALIGNMENT functionality.
