Racewood Equestrian Simulators
Racewood is the only company in the world that produces a riding simulator that uses sensors to measure riding aids, utilizes a platform that allows the machine to mimic the horses movement in all 4 gaits and jump.  Other riding simulators are for gaming purposes and lack the riding sensors and the intricacies of the horses gait.  Company sync's available technology with the simulator, so that a vast array of information can be captured and feedback to the instructor or rider, such as balance or rein contact.  Current users find this level of analysis invaluable and obviously much easier to obtain when using a simulator.

We already have purchased some of these soil sensing system for another research project the last couple

of years and would like to be able to use the same systems so they are compatible with what we already have and we can use them with

the existing systems if needed in the field or if one should break down or be destroyed.

IFB 331

Sole source for BZ-X810 All-In-One Fluorescence Microscope Controller, Keyence

Equipment Description

The requested microscope system is a fully automated all‐in‐one digital microscope system that houses

up to 6 high‐quality lenses, 4 filter cubes in automated turrets, and a software platform which is

specifically integrated to operate with the selected hardware . The compact, fully‐enclosed design

enables it to become its own built‐in dark room, while all objectives and filters are controlled through

the software. The unit uses a 14‐bit monochrome CCD that is also able to take 24‐bit true color images.

The microscope is capable of stitching up to a 50,000x 50,000 pixel images in a combination of bright

field, phase contrast, and/or fluorescence imaging modes (8 times faster than conventional methods).

Stitched images of whole crosssections or entire wells can be used within the "Navigation Window"

to move the automated XY stage with precision to various areas of interest at higher magnifications

(including the 100x oil lens). Stitching can also be combined with the Z‐stacking capability, which allows

for capturing images within a range of focal planes that can then be projected as a single fully‐focused

image. The included analyzer software combines image correction tools with powerful quantification

functions, including the haze reduction tool which instantly removes fluorescence blurring and enables

visualization of weak fluorescence signals. The same system also has the option of integrating an

incubation chamber within the enclosed stage for easy live cell imaging. The system requires no

maintenance contract and is supported for the lifetime of the product by Keyence Corporation. Keyence

Corporation of America is also the only authorized supplier of this microscope in the US.

It has to have the ability to perform z stack or stitching of multiple images from Brain Tissue. It also needs to have the ability to expand and add different hardware and software modules such as live cell imaging over time, which can quantify fluorescence, cell movements/shape within a 96 well plate.

Real Time Quick Z‐stacking software Automatic cell counting software Measurement software

PC interface USB Live cell incubation

Weight: 33 kg (without objectives mounted) Analysis Software access key for each lab


Added Software and Options:

One of the strongest features of the Keyence BZ‐X800 is lost without the optional analysis software for

cell counting, measurement. Keyence designs all of their intuitive software allowing users to analyze

large amounts of data in minimal time. The advantage of high throughput image capture and analysis

can only be achieved with Keyence software.

Having the Keyence software eliminates the need for multiple experiments that would have to be

carried out with traditional methods, saving our lab time and money. The multitude of analytical

methods available with the Keyence Software adds a much needed capability to our lab. Additionally,

other software available on the market would not be supported by Keyence. The advantage of obtaining

both Keyence hardware and software is to ensure smooth operation and to eliminate compatibility

issues. By acquiring Keyence hardware and software, Keyence Corporation can provide expert support

for all of our imaging needs from capture to analysis.
