OBB Corp Launch New DeltaRAM-X Illuminator for Fluorescence Microscopy

Optical Building Blocks Corporation (OBB) announces the introduction of the DeltaRAM-X millisecond wavelength switching fluorescence microscope illuminator.

The DeltaRAM-X is the ideal fluorescence microscope illuminator for quantitative intracellular ion research of Fura-2 [Ca++], BCECF [pH], SBFI [Na++], FRET and much more. Although it is most commonly used for mammalian cellular research in neurology, cardiology, biophysics and electrophysiology, it can also be used for other spectroscopy applications requiring high speed wavelength switching.

Globally priced at just $12,950, this self contained and self aligned illuminator couples to all fluorescence microscopes via a flexible liquid light guide and microscope specific adapter. Microscope alignment and uniformity of illumination are assured. The DeltaRAM can switch between any wavelengths from 250 to 650 nm in only 2 milliseconds making it ideal for tracking fast intracellular ion changes. It also features a continuously adjustable bandwidth from 0 to 24 nm and a TTL shutter to prevent photobleaching.
