Understanding Fluorescence Microscopy
Want to Customize Your Life Sciences System?
Our Fluorescence Microscope, built entirely from components found in the Edmund Optics catalog, allows you to quickly customize to your application needs. The microscope, which is structured using TECHSPEC® Cage System components for unlimited adaptability, facilitates the easy exchange of light sources, objectives, and filters. In our demo, the microscope features a white light Lumencor SOLA Light Engine and Coherent® OBIS™ Lasers to allow for the excitation of almost any fluorophore in the visible spectrum. By incorporating a bandpass filter, one can achieve excitation efficiency similar to that of a diode-based laser.
Additionally, a Zaber ASR Motorized Microscope Stage can be added for faster scanning capabilities, which is ideal for larger samples that need to be completely inspected across the entire area. A camera and a wide variety of Mitutoyo objectives can be used to capture, save, and stitch together images once the scan is complete. The demo also utilizes TECHSPEC® Multi-Band Fluorescence Bandpass Filters, for enhanced fluorescence inspection.
