Scientifica Multiphoton Detection Unit (MDU)
An optimised two-channel fluorescence collection and detection system designed for multiphoton fluorescence imaging.
Designed for integration with Scientifica’s SliceScope microscope, the MDU comprises pre-aligned optics, safety shutters/switches, a filter cube and either one or two photomultiplier tubes (PMTs). Each detection unit also contains a power supply, preamplifier and control unit.
Increased photon capture
Maximised light collection from a wide range of objectives and condensers. Photons can be harvested from objectives that have either a small or large back apertures (RMS, M25, M27 and M32 thread adapters available).
Above or below the sample
Collect reflected fluorescence through the microscope objective, or transmitted fluorescence using a high-NA oil-immersion condenser lens. Alternatively combine two MDUs simultaneously for optimum signal collection in up to four channels.
