Our laboratory works on membrane remodelling using Tetrahymena as a model system. We were looking for an upgrade of our microscope with an sCMOS camera to capture live events in millisecond scale.

While evaluating various available technologies we realized that the Aurox Clarity system offers several features over conventional laser based confocal microscopes.

The Clarity has offered us an affordable solution for high resolution and high speed imaging for four channel imaging backed by a simple and easy to use Visionary software.

From the first image I saw, I was quite sure we would move ahead with your system.

Your help and dedication was instrumental to get this microscope working and make it useful and optimal for our needs. You all were generous to replace things when needed, fix them when needed and help us to find the pieces we needed to work effectively.  Big things and small things, like a blocked filter, you helped us generously in every way we could imagine.

I/we are amazed every day by the performance of the Aurox system. We have been using it every day for experiments using a variety of cells and most often combined with patch clamping. The software is working for us very smoothly, and in the interface to other software, most importantly Image J, is working flawlessly.

We are able to do most imaging things we dream up very effectively.

I/we are happy to pass on to others that our experiences with Aurox have been the most happy I/we have had with any company in our careers. We are most happy to recommend the Aurox system and your company to others with similar needs.

We have been using the Clarity to build bespoke microscopes to image mRNA in tissue using multiplexed single molecule FISH.

As a small spin out company, Aurox; who also sell the Unity product, are fantastic to work with, as we can obtain direct access to their technical specialists to obtain details of advanced uses of their product.

The price of the product is highly competitive, while its design makes it feasible to use conventional illumination such as LED instead of costly lasers.

Clarity allows us to image in widefield mode and multiple degrees of 'confocality' .

aurox confocal microscope Prof Ilan Davis

The Aurox system has two main features that are advantageous for us. A narrow depth of field compared with widefield fluorescence and fast image acquisition.

The narrow depth of field and fast image acquisition allows us to tune the exposure time for a given flow rate in order to obtain suitable length streaks. It would be extremely challenging to obtain comparable images with a laser-scanning confocal system.

This technology allows a fast multicolour image acquisition at high speed and in multiple dimensions. It is particularly well suited for us to investigate the interaction between nanoparticles and living cells, including dendritic and cancer cells.

aurox confocal microscope Prof Bruno De Geest

Visionary, is quite user-friendly and simple to use.

The Visionary interface is easy to learn with colour-coded steps that guide the user to a quick hardware set up and fast imaging acquisition.

Beside the simple layout and the easy accessibility, the software features a built-in link to Fiji to access the acquired images for instant processing and analysis.

While the Visionary interface initially looked very different to anything that we have worked with previously, it proved to be very intuitive to use, easy to learn and extremely sleek in operation.

All your experiment settings are accessible from a single panel!  And it looks beautiful too.

aurox confocal microscope Prof Jonathan Gibbins

Aurox have been supplying Carl Zeiss for >10 years now. We have been constantly impressed by the company’s technical expertise, attention to detail and eagerness to go the extra mile to satisfy a discerning customer.

Reliable partners and really nice people to work with.

aurox confocal microscope Dr-Ing Viktor Drescher

Aurox Clarity allowed me to visualise detailed staining that I had previously missed using other systems.

The technology was user friendly and produced lovely multicolour images very quickly.

The Visionary software interface is colour coded and the experimental settings are all located in a single panel which makes it very easy to learn.

‘’We recently purchased the Aurox Clarity Laser-free Confocal system together with a high-speed Hamamatsu camera. For us, this was the best solution to obtain a confocal microscope, as we already had an old inverse microscope that we could use as the basic unit of the system. The Aurox Clarity system provides us several advantages over standard confocal systems.

We got an unbeatable system price-wise, and the quality of the images is excellent! We are also able to acquire images with superresolution with our system, which is a great experimental advantage.

The Aurox Clarity system provides us a flexible choice among several software programs that can be used for image acquisition and analysis. All in all, this was a good investment with full value for our money!

We imaged a Drosophila mid-gut to exemplify how fast large mosaics can be taken with the Aurox Clarity.  4-channels, 4 z-levels and 50 tiles, imaged in 8 mins.
