LaVision Biotec TrimScope 2-Photon Realtime Microscope

La Vision BioTec’s innovative approach to 2-photon microscopy is unique. While LaVision BioTec’s optics engineers designed the TriM Scope they had the following mission:

“Design the perfect 2-photon microscope delivering maximum frame rate and deepest penetration at lowest possible sample damage!”

To deliver these results the TriM Scope utilizes a unique imaging setup that scans the specimen with 64 beams simultaneously. First, 64 beams deliver 64 times more fluorescence light keeping the intensities in individual beams – and so the damage – low. Next, more fluorescence light allows higher frame rates. Finally, CCD cameras deliver much better sensitivity than PMTs.

Laser Quantum taccor c

taccor

The Laser Quantum taccor c is a unique turn-key femtosecond laser with integrated pump source in a hermetically sealed cavity. At 1GHz repetition rate it delivers up to 1.6W of average power with pulses that can be as short as 50fs. The taccor is designed as self mode-locking and stabilising. 

The taccor GHz hands-off laser has been shown to offer an increased imaging time for living samples by a factor of 5-10 due to reduced photo-damage and bleaching.
