Beam switcher

           USA/Canada: +1 (248) 436-8085

  Versatile Accessory for Microscopy and   Optogenetics Applications

  Introduction

The Beam Switcher accessory allows Prizmatix LEDs installed on the microscope to be used either for the microscope epi-fluorescence illumination or for illuminating a specimen via a fiberoptic probe.

The Beam switcher is especially useful for in vitro approaches such as optogenetics with patch-clamp recording in brain slices. The Beam switcher saves cost, space and allows maximum flexibility in experiment design.

Alternatively, the Beam Switcher is useful for assembling White LED and single color LED at fluorescence microscope. Please see below for application examples and optional accesopries
