2-color Fluorescence Microscope Bodies
The 2-color fluorescence microscope body combines two CMOS sensors for simultaneous imaging of two different fluorophores. Due to the chromatic aberrations of GRIN lenses, the position of each image sensor is adjusted to correct the chromatic shift and image the same object plane in both colors. As the chromatic shift is related to the length of the GRIN lens, the correction is valid for one specific length of GRIN lens. Green (GFP like) + Red (RFP like) systems are offered in 3 different models, two systems optimized for Snap-in Imaging Cannulas model L type D and type V, and one system optimized for surface imaging.
