PACE-2/LMM-Bio PROJECT DOCUMENTS
♦ PACE-Bio: Sealed sample cell with practice/test particles and simple biological systems. Could be used to examine biological material found in ISS. LED light source and mount for trans-illumination.
♦ Testing biological containment design and transillumination.
♦ The Preliminary Advanced Colloids Experiment will use the existing Light Microscopy Module (LMM) hardware in the Fluids Integrated Rack (FIR) aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Use existing LMM stage and PACE sample container.
♦ The LMM-Bio is designed for autonomous operation through scripts and ground-based commanding. Crew time is required for the initial installation and check out in the FIR, sample change out, and removal from the FIR.
