The UltraMicroscope setup

The advanced Ultramicroscope configuration delivers superior imaging capabilities and user friendliness. Just choose camera, objective lens and laser light source to adapt the Ultramicroscope to your application.   

  •  sCMOS technology for high quality images   
  •  Bidirectional sheet excitation allows a consistent illumination   
  •  Low magnification lenses for macro imaging 

Laser sources

  •  Laser module with up to 5 laser diodes  
  •  White light super continuum lasers for maximum excitation flexibility
