This intravital microscope boasts an impressive collection of hardware. Equipped with 2 multiphoton lasers utilising a pre-chirp compensator to keep laser pulse width < 150 fs, a collection of detectors including high sensitive NDD detectors close to the objective lens, descanned PMTs, imaging cameras for fast 64 beam scanning and also LaVision BioTec's FLIM x16 TCSPC detector for rapid fluorescence lifetime measurements.
Optoacoustic or photoacoustic imaging is a new, cutting-edge imaging technique which detects ultrasound waves following light absorption from specific molecules. This technique allows molecules with different spectral profile to be detected.
The BD Influx™ cell sorter is equipped with five excitation lasers (ultraviolet 355nm, violet 405nm, blue 488nm, yellow/green 561nm and red 642nm) and has a flexible detection configuration with a number of filter set options, detecting up to 24 parameters (21 fluorescence channels, two forward scatter channels and one side scatter).
The BD LSRFortessa™ SORP X-20 analyzing flow cytometer is equipped with five excitation lasers (ultraviolet 355nm, violet 405nm, blue 488nm, yellow/green 561nm and red 642nm) and is able to detect up to 20 parameters (18 fluorescence channels plus forward scatter and side scatter). This cytometer’s configuration has been designed to mirror that of our BD Influx (excluding small particle detection), enabling users to easily transfer or work-up experiments.
