  • Dual-Axes Confocal Microscope Having Improved Performance For Thick Samples
  • An interdisciplinary team of Stanford researchers is developing a dual axis confocal (“DAC”) microscope system for in vivo imaging of tissues at the cellular scale. This system is designed to provide point-of care microscopic optical sectioning (histopathology) with both reflectance and fluorescence imaging to diagnose and evaluate diseases such as cancer. The architecture allows for simple integration of fiber optics, micro-optics, and microelectronmechanical systems (MEMS) components into a miniature apparatus that can be integrated into existing endoscopes or into therapeutic tools (such as tumor suction catheters or ultrasound).
