II.1) Scope of the procurement
II.1.1) Title:

Acquisition of a Zeiss LSM980 with Airyscan2 and Axiozoom with Apotome2 to the Core Facility for Integrated Microscopy

II.1.2) Main CPV code
38510000
II.1.3) Type of contract
Supplies
II.1.4) Short description:

An additional inverted fluorescence confocal microscope is needed in order to manage the huge demand of users at CFIM for imaging their samples. It will enable us to image cells and tissues under natural conditions with an environmental control. It will be equipped with the Airyscan detector, which allows us to image with lower light intensity and higher resolution, which is essential for many of the projects/applications.

CFIM also has a need for a new stereo/zoom microscope which can acquire both overview images as well as more detailed images for both Brightfield and Fluorescence. The zoom microscope will be equipped with the ApoTome, which allows for optical sectioning.

II.1.6) Information about lots
This contract is divided into lots: no
II.1.7) Total value of the procurement (excluding VAT)
Value excluding VAT: 5 093 124.00 DKK

Section IV: Procedure

IV.1) Description
IV.1.1) Type of procedure
Negotiated procedure without prior publication
  • The works, supplies or services can be provided only by a particular economic operator for the following reason:
    • absence of competition for technical reasons
Explanation:

With the ZEN Connect software the AxioZoom.V16 and the LSM 980 can be used for correlative microscopy to quickly acquire an overview image on the zoom microscope. The overview image can then be used for navigation on the confocal microscope. This will increase the productivity on the confocal microscope.

The LSM 980 with Airyscan 2 is the only laser scanning confocal microscope that allows us to acquire images with lower laser light intensity and higher resolution. It is a point scanning confocal with super resolution based on pixel reassignment detection technology. This will give an isotropic increase in resolution down 120 nm lateral and 350 nm axial. The new multiplex mode provides greatly enhanced imaging speed (8 x faster) than confocal imaging while providing better resolution and signal to noise. This allows gentle imaging at low laser power for high-speed processes and also productive imaging of large fields of view in combination with tile experiments with enhanced image quality.

US8705172

Method for enhancing the resolution of a microscope during the detection of an illuminated specimen and a microscope for carrying out the method, wherein in a first position, an illumination pattern is generated on the specimen, the resolution of which is preferably within the range of the attainable optical resolution of the microscope or higher, wherein a relative movement, preferably perpendicular to the direction of illumination, from a first into at least 1 second position of the illumination pattern on the specimen is generated at least once between the detection and the illumination pattern with a step width smaller than the resolution limit of the microscope and detection and storage of the detection signals take place both in the first and in the second position.

EP2825908

High-resolution scanning microscopy

Summary excerpt: a microscope for high-resolution scanning microscopy of a sample, with a spatial resolution which, taking account of the imaging scale, is at least twice as high as a full width at half maximum of the diffraction-limited individual image, to have: a detector array.

Claimed in EP2825908.

The AxioZoom.V16 with the ApoTome.2 represents the most powerful combination of a large 16:1 zoom range with the highest basic NA 0.25 in the market. The ApoTome.2 is a device for structured illumination to acquire multichannel 3D fluorescence images of sections and whole animals. This provides images with increased resolution and increased spatial resolution. With this system, users at CFIM can acquire both macroscopic images of large samples as well as 3D images of e.g. cleared samples.
