The MicroMirror TIRF microscope is a unique single molecule microscope. Spatial separation of the excitation and emission beams and the use of broadband micromirrors leads to superior signal-to-noise ratios for multi-wavelength TIRF microscopy. The open access to the excitation and emission optical pathways makes this the ideal platform to implement a range of biophysical techniques simultaneously.
The MicroMirror TIRF system is part of the RM21®microscope family. The MicroMirror TIRF microscope uses through-the-objective excitation, but replaces the dichroic used in conventional TIRF systems with two broadband micro-mirrors positioned at the back aperture of the objective lens.
Key Features Include:
- Integrated imaging and motion control platform
- Spatially separated excitation and emission beams
- Adjustable mounts
- Open access to optical pathways
- Highly stable and flexible platforms
