Capabilities: 

Maestro provides users with a patented method of removing autofluorescence emitted from images of plant and animal tissues to reveal otherwise hard-to-detect labeled targets of interest. The dramatic improvement in signal-to-noise can increase sensitivity up to several hundred-fold, enabling much smaller or fainter signals from biological targets to be detected earlier and accurately measured. The increased sensitivity over standard imaging techniques provided by Maestro’s high-quality spectral imaging technology enable experiments and models which simply cannot be performed on any other system.
