La Vision BioTec’s innovative approach to 2-photon microscopy is unique. While LaVision BioTec’s optics engineers designed the TriM Scope they had the following mission:
“Design the perfect 2-photon microscope delivering maximum frame rate and deepest penetration at lowest possible sample damage!”
To deliver these results the TriM Scope utilizes a unique imaging setup that scans the specimen with 64 beams simultaneously. First, 64 beams deliver 64 times more fluorescence light keeping the intensities in individual beams – and so the damage – low. Next, more fluorescence light allows higher frame rates. Finally, CCD cameras deliver much better sensitivity than PMTs.
