Modular Fluorescence Microscope System
The Modular Fluorescence Microscope System is designed for demanding single band fluorescence research applications. Camera sensor sizes can be between 11 mm (2/3") and 33 mm
The Modular Fluorescence Microscope System is made from the Navitar's MTL Modular Imaging System which offers a flexible approach and the highest optical standards. It accepts a large range of camera formats including C-mount, F-mount, SLR and 42 mm.
The Stand has a column height of 515 mm and boom arm of 600 mm. The sturdy construction with a course and fine focus mechanism gives fine control when using high magnification objectives. Other bench stands and mountings are available.
The Modular Fluorescence Microscope uses filters mounted into a BX2 "Olympus Cube". The choice of dye dictates the filter set and the colour of LED.
There are several illumination options including a range of coloured and white co-axial LED's plus the more conventional halogen and mercury arc sources with liquid light guides. The co-axial LED's come in both standard and adjustable focus options. For Fluorescence imaging the focusing option is recommended, where all the 4.8 watt of intensive light can be utilized.
A large range of high quality filter sets to suit the selected dye are available from Chroma.inc
For example , if the dyes are EGFP, FitC, Cy2 or AlexaFluor 488 the required filter set is 39002 with the illumination is the Blue 470 nm LED.
