Imagine Optic Adaptive Optics AOKit BIO

Build your ideal adaptive optics system for microscopy.


AOKit Bio allows you to build the adaptive optics system that best suits your individual needs. Whichever microscopy method you are using, adaptive optics allows you to pre-compensate aberrations present in your imaging system and to improve your image quality.
