Streamlined Multiphoton Imaging

Best starting place for in vivo studies

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 with Behavioral Paradigms

Intravital imaging using functional indicators provides the opportunity to measure neural activity in awake, behaving specimens. Ultima Investigator 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.

Ultima Investigator Anatomic Mapping

High-Resolution Anatomic Mapping of Neural Networks

The Atlas Imaging module in Bruker's Prairie View software simplifies setup of 2-D and 3-D 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 3-D montages can be variable, allowing more efficient collection of data.
