Get the best performance out of your equipment

At MIA Cellavie, our mission is to help you and your team maximize sample protection, optimize equipment performance and rapidly acquire data quantitatively. With our expertise in management of light microscopy systems and our quality control plans, we want to ensure your equipment’s usage at its full potential.

“No need to learn yourself, nor to worry about artefacts and equipment breakdown resulting from an insufficient mastering of the system”

Support for several microscopy techniques including:

Microscopy Equipment Quality Control Plans FOR:

-Microscope, including stage (especially oil and spills), computer, table, etc
-Air table (level, pressure and responsiveness)

-Condenser alignment
-Alignment of differential interference contrast (DIC) elements and/or phase contrast rings 

-Qualitative evaluation (dust, dirt, scratches, etc)
-Visual detection of the secondary ring of the Airy diffraction pattern
-Visual evaluation of objective’s planapochromatic performance
-Cleaning (oil, spills, mounting media, etc)
-Cleaning kit
-Quantitative evaluation (resolution and shape, spherical and chromatic aberrations)

-Alignment and even illumination (bulb replacement when needed)
-Inspection and cleaning (entry/exit lens, filter cubes, ND filters)
-Widefield light source intensity measurement
-Laser performance (intensity, stability, alignment, illumination uniformity, mode-locking)
-Light through put efficiency (photo-electron conversion factor)
-Filter cube performance (color registration, chromatic aberrations)
-Dichroic mirrors and emission filters performance (color registration, chromatic aberrations)

-Image distortion evaluation
-Performance (offset and noise)
-Pinhole alignment
