Optical Cage System Application: Digital Video Microscope

Digital Video Fluorescence Microscope

What is a Digital Fluorescence Microscope?

Unlike traditional microscopes, which utilize an eyepiece for performing visual inspection, digital video microscopes utilize cameras to record and capture images, providing higher resolution and higher precision than what is typically seen with the human eye. Since infinity corrected digital video microscopes can be quite complex, using the modular TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System is ideal for simplifying the assembly. In this case another aspect has been added to the design to incorporate a fluorescence aspect to the digital microscope. Fluorescence microscopy is ideal for measuring and analyzing the absorption and excitation of various wavelengths of light. An in-line fluorescence microscopy setup utilizes a dichroic filter to redirect light from an illuminator into the perpendicular optical path.

Why TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System?

Building a customized digital fluorescence microscope with TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System components allows the user to build a microscope quickly and easily with limitless customization options. Objectives can be changed to modify system magnification, and interchangeable filter holders make swapping filters easy. Custom illumination can be added for brightfield, darkfield, or in-line illumination options. Additionally, a spectrometer could be added for precise spectral measurements.
