"We do immunofluorescene everyday & image very often. This system produces really high quality images. Use is straight forward and simple. Easy for all the technicians to use it."
The MT20 is a very flexible, fast and precise illumination system.
It incorporates a fast, eight-position filter wheel and a fast attenuator providing 14 intensity grades. The built-in shutter has an exceptional 1ms on/off time, which eliminates off-acquisition photobleaching. Two reliable light source types are available: a 150 W xenon arc burner and a 150 W mercury-xenon mixed gas arc burner, while an electronic feed-back loop and a photo diode ensure perfect light intensity with minimal fluctuations. The light is connected via a single quartz fibre optic cable and every step is controlled with microsecond precision by the xcellence real-time controller.
