multi-dimensional memory management: Multi-dimensional at its Core Andor iQ is multidimensional at its Core. This means you can handle multi-channel, time-series, Z series and multi-field data with consummate ease. iQ provides easy to use tools for analysis, processing, visualization and management of live cell experiment data and “understands” dimensionality, so navigating and manipulating complex data sets is instant and interactive. Handle huge data sets with ease Andor iQ is built to handle huge data sets seamlessly with ImageDisk™ technology. ImageDisk™ has been developed and proven...

Figure 15. Courtesy Dr Iain Johnson, Invitrogen, Eugene, OR. Cultured neurons were loaded with DiSBAC2(3), a voltage sensitive dye and visualized with the Revolution 488. Exposure time of the iXon 887-BV was 100ms and EM Gain 200. The figure shows a film strip from Andor iQ of maximum intensity projection time series. Time point 4 is taken almost simultaneously with the addition of KCl, which depolarizes the cells and shows a near instantaneous rise in DiSBAC2(3) signal. ∆F of almost 45% is observed in this example. Imaged at The 3D Microscopy of Living Cells Course, Vancouver 2005. Montage...
