Argo-SIM slides are re-usable stable fluorescence slides for assessing and monitoring fluorescence-based imaging systems. The Argo-SIM slides are specifically designed for structured illumination microscopes, as well as any system using deconvolution algorithms.
Each Argo-SIM slide contains several fluorescent microscopic patterns designed to help the user detect aberration in imaging systems. Their intensity and spectrum are stable for over 3 years. The analysis of pattern images can be simplified using Argolight software solutions. The slides are compatible with excitation from 350 nm to 650 nm (fluorescence excitation over 550 nm requires sensitive sensors).
