At the forefront of scientific discoveries for more than ten years, Bruker’s Ultima multiphoton imaging technology is a direct result decades of close collaboration and laboratory experience with leading neuroscientists around the world. The involvement of these experts has led to a host of unique capabilities and features found only on Ultima systems, such as their modular setup, incorporated photostimulation light path, and feature-rich Prairie View Software.
Compared to confocal technology, multiphoton imaging allows deeper imaging into tissue, making it the technique of choice for thicker tissue specimens, such as brain slices or tumor or lymph node explants, as well as intravital research of small animal models. In addition to 2-photon imaging, Bruker has pioneered the use of 2-photon techniques for photoactivation and photostimulation. Optical configurations allowing the use of fast pulsed IR lasers provide the ability to perform photoactivation and photostimulation with precise 3D localization. The open architecture of Ultima systems provides the flexibility required to meet the widest range of application requirements, while delivering the capability for easy future upgrades.
