Featured 3D prints: Mir Lab’s microscope holders

This week’s featured 3D prints are microscope holders. The Mir Lab is interested in using microscopy to study the mechanisms underlying gene activation in the context of early animal development. These holders allow lab staff to mount live fly embryos to an oxygen-permeable membrane for imaging on a microscope, keeping the embryos alive and healthy while being imaged. This allows the researchers to see the dynamic molecular-scale processes occurring in the embryo at high resolution in real time during development.
