Advanced multiphoton microscopes for global life science research
Advanced multiphoton microscopes for global life science research: A White Paper from Rocky Mountain Instrument Co (RMI)
This White Paper details how Rocky Mountain Instrument Co. (RMI) was integral to the optical development of multiphoton microscopes with fast pulsed lasers and extremely high NA light collection techniques.
Dealing with the intricacies of biological systems is no mean feat, and researchers require optical systems that can delve into the intricacies of different biological samples. Then comes the potential headache of protecting these innovations, figuring out patents, balancing openness with commercial goals, and dealing with the costs involved.
Rocky Mountain Instrument (RMI) can help. The company prides itself on its ability not to just manufacture optics; but to engineer real solutions for customers in the life science space. The firm’s expert engineers act as an extension of an in-house research and development team, helping to take introductory sketches or complicated ideas and turn them into a fully developed commercial product.
What this White Paper covers
- Multiphoton microscopy and its uses
- Multiphoton microscopy: Optical setup
- Rocky Mountain Instrument’s engineering solutions
- A case study about the development of the Diesel2p multiphoton microscope
Who should read this White Paper
Researchers and R&D professionals working in life science applications who want to realise the benefits of multiphoton microscopy.
What is the Diesel2p microscope?
The Diesel2p is a specialised two-photon microscope system featuring dual scan engines that function independently. With each arm providing optical access to a sizable imaging volume of approximately 25mm2, this system can maintain subcellular resolution even in scattering tissue at typical depths used in two-photon imaging. What’s more, each arm has the capability to use multiple sources simultaneously, which makes it versatile for various applications such as imaging and photoactivation experiments.
