Mad City Labs offers the MicroMirror TIRF system as a new single molecule imaging instrument composed with high precision, high stability nanopositioning and microscopy technologies. Using the technique of micro-mirror total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, this system is designed for studying the ordered assembly and function of multi-component biomolecular machines.
The MicroMirror TIRF system utilizes through-the-objective excitation and two broadband micro-mirrors positioned at the back aperture of the objective lens instead of the dichroic used in conventional TIRF systems. This results in superior signal-to-noise ratios, and simplifies the introduction of multiple spectral lines to the experiment.
