Highly flexible image splitter that enables multi-camera, simultaneous multi-channel imaging from a single microscope port

  • Supports up to 8 channels of varying polarity, emission wavelength, and depth of focus
  • Essential equipment for researchers wanting to push the limits of simultaneous multi-channel imaging

The MultiCam LS Image Splitter has been designed as a convenient solution for simultaneous multi-channel imaging without sacrificing field of view. Traditionally, multi-wavelength imaging experiments required that multiple images be captured sequentially. However, because the various images were not taken at the same time, temporal artifacts, caused by intracellular movement, often appeared between exposures. To eliminate these temporal artifacts and provide the most accurate measurements, the MultiCam LS allows multiple images to be acquired simultaneously.

This image splitter enables pixel alignment between multiple cameras coupled to a single microscope port. The base unit accommodates multiple Cairn filter cubes allowing light to be distributed on the basis of wavelength, polarization state, or focal depth. Each cube has fine mechanical X-Y adjustment for pixel overlay or deliberate image offset. The input of the instrument has a variable rectangular aperture enabling the use of cropped sensor mode on both detectors.

  • Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
