As the most streamlined model of Bruker's Ultima family of multiphoton microscopes, Ultima Investigator™ features a base system specifically optimized for in vivo studies and is designed for add-on flexibility with a host of specialized options. Ultima Investigator's high-resolution, high-speed, high-sensitivity deep imaging provides the ultimate value for smaller labs and additional imaging bandwidth in larger labs.
Intravital imaging using functional indicators provides the opportunity to measure neural activity in awake, behaving specimens. Ultima 2Pplus provides the imaging speed to capture activity of neural networks in single or multiple focal planes.
Multiphoton intravital imaging provides a high resolution method for imaging tumor implants. Tumor progression and response to pharmaceuticals as well as immune cell response, can be measured through longitudinal imaging sessions. Ultima Investigator can be configured to image the collagen fibers.
The Atlas Imaging module in Bruker's Prairie View software simplifies setup of 2D and 3D automated montages. X,Y boundaries are easily setup through a thumbnail display. Tiles not containing areas of interest can be turned off, and the Z range for 3D montages can be variable, allowing more efficient collection of data.
We appreciate the modular nature of the Ultima hardware and software. The systems now available range from basic imaging systems to the dual-laser photo-stimulation multi-mode imaging workstation. We have continued updating many of our 14 machines, including our ten year old systems. The Team Viewer connection and support is a huge asset for novice owners and for significant software changes.
