FLIM Systems for Biorad MRC 1024 and Radiance 2000 Multiphoton Microscopes

bullet

The Biorad Microscopes have been discontinued in 2004. bh has supplied a number of FLIM systems for these microscopes and still supports existing MRC 1024 and Radiance 2000 FLIM systems.
 

 


Modular FLIM Solutions for other Laser Scanning Microscopes

bullet

Due to their modularity the bh can easily be attached to home-built scanning systems. The requirements are:

bullet

The system uses a picosecond or femtosecond laser for excitation or

bullet

A fibre input for a BDL-SMC picosecond diode laser is available.

bullet

The fluorescence light is available at a suitable optical port of the system

bullet

Scan clock pulses are available to synchronise the recording with the scanning. For details please see bh TCSPC Handbook and 'Overview about bh Modular FLIM Systems' (below).

 

Additional options for ultra-high speed FLIM

bullet

32 MHz throughput

bullet

Fully scalable ( 1 to 8 fully parallel TCSPC channels )

bullet

Simultaneous detection in all time- and wavelength channels

bullet

Data acquisition completely on-board - no transfer bottlenecks
