Title: SYSTEM FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS VIDEOGRAPHIC OR PHOTOGRAPHIC ACQUISITION OF MULTIPLE IMAGES
Abstract:
The invention relates to a system for the parallel videographic or photographic acquisition of images, in particular of samples in multiple sample wells (16) of a multi-well test plate, preferably of a microtiter plate, comprising at least one array of microscopes (2, 8) with mutually parallel optical axes, wherein each microscope comprises its own image-capturing chip (2) and its own objective lens (8), and wherein the system comprises at least one support plate (1), on the surface of which all the image-capturing chips (2) of all microscopes (2, 8) of an array are attached next to each other, forming together a line and row arrangement, an image data processing electronic unit (3) located laterally next to the array of image-capturing chips (2) and/or behind the array of image-capturing chips (2), and an array of objective lenses (8), in particular microscope objective lenses (8) with a corresponding line and row arrangement located in front of the image-capturing chips (2), when viewed in the direction of the optical axes (A).
