Hello everyone, can anybody comment on how they procured the objectives mentioned in the COLM paper? It appears that Olympus won't currently sell the imaging objective except together with their confocal systems.
I'm with a company called Applied Scientific Instrumentation that makes "microscope LEGOs". We have developed a light sheet microscope adapted for smaller objects (see http://dispim.org/)
. Several groups are interested in using our pieces to build a COLM, but the sticking point seems to be obtaining the objectives.
