IMA™ FLUORESCENCE

Dedicated to life sciences, IMA™ Fluorescence is an all-in-one hyperspectral fluorescence microscope perfect for studying the properties of organic and inorganic substances. This hyperspectral platform is optimized for both visible and infrared spectral range.

 

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Fast global mapping (non scanning)
  • High spatial and spectral resolution
  • Complete system (source, microscope, camera, filter, software)
  • Non-destructive analysis
  • Customization available

Applications

OPTICAL CHEMOSENSOR

IMA™ provided rapid quantitative fluorescence imaging from DNA polyfluorophores. Those polyfluorophores  were used as optical chemosensors for the detection of complex mixtures of hydrocarbons in contaminated soil.

NEURONAL IMAGING

Cellular and tissue imaging are limited by the number of label, or stains, that one could use to image and study many tissue type or molecular species simultaneously. Photon etc.’s technology can remove these limits by using novel narrow band labels and its hyperspectral imager.

NANOPARTICLES IN CANCER CELLS

When Photon etc’s hyperspectral imager is combined with a highly effective dark field condenser, it is possible to generate high-contrast images of biological samples such as cancer cells.

Photon etc’s Global Imaging Technology

This video shows the conceptual difference between hyperspectral global imaging and raster scan (line-scan, push- broom). With global imaging, the gain in acquiring 3D data, 2D spatial and 1D spectral, is important since the only a few monochromatic images are required to cover the complete  spectral range where one needs to take the full spectrum for each point or line in the image with other technologies.
