Calibration slide for fluorescence imaging systems
- for the routine calibration of fluorescence microscopes
- for automated fluorescence imaging systems, e.g. scanning cytometry
Calibration slides are designed for the routine calibration of confocal fluorescence microscopes and other fluorescence imaging systems. They are prepared by mounting statistically distributed monodisperse PMMA beads that contain ultra-stable fluorophores onto standard 75 x 25 x 1 mm glass slides. The beads are protected from mechanical stress with a coverglass.
