Woburn, Massachusetts – October 6, 2010 – TRIO is the most affordable of CRi’s MSI systems. Its compact design and intuitive software make it an easy add-on to any microscope with a camera port. Setup and operation are literally accomplished in minutes. No advanced knowledge of multispectral imaging is required. TRIO enables simple image capture and high-contrast separation of any three chromogens or any three fluorophores in its spectral ranges. Additionally, autofluorescence is removed, increasing signal-to-noise by up to 100x and vastly improving quantitation. It can take both high-resolution color as well as multispectral images, and automatically exports images in standard image file formats.
