5 channels, Visible plus Near-Infrared (NIR) Imaging

RCM2.5 is the next big thing in confocal microscopy. Building on the existing RCM2 platform, we have developed a version that can utilise up to 5 lasers; extending over the Visible and Near-Infrared (NIR). Moreover, RCM2.5 enables you to use the latest advances in NIR dye development and look much deeper into your specimen. Experience complete experimental freedom and flexibility with our RCM2.5.

RCM2.5 Comparison

Improve your imaging experience with RCM2.5

  • Near-Infrared (NIR) Imaging at 785 nm excitation.
  • 5 channels (405, 488, 561, 638 and 785).
  • Larger FOV without increasing acquisition time.
  • Bidirectional scanner allowing up to 2fps at 512 x 512 pixels.
  • Excellent add-on to any widefield microscope.
  • Easy to use.
  • Hardware integration in third-party software.
  • Large FOV Super-resolution (120 nm) imaging with 40x 1.4NA objectives.

 

The benefits of using RCM2.5

With a 5th channel, you can expand your experiment with an extra label, enabling you to see more details and gather even more relevant information. The NIR window allows for deeper imaging in biological specimens. Our re-scanning technology improves the lateral resolution of the microscope also at 785 nm, allowing higher resolution imaging compared to traditional confocal microscopes. Moreover, the camera-based detection in the RCM has a much higher efficiency compared to PMTs. With RCM2.5, you’ll work more efficiently, save time, and most importantly: produce high contrast images of the best image quality you can imagine. Acquiring fluorescent images has never been easier.

 

Who should use RCM2.5 and why?

High resolution & low phototoxicity
RCM2.5 is a very easy-to-use confocal microscope system, a system of great added value for any microscopy facility. This confocal microscope offers up to 95% Quantum Efficiency, whereas most other confocal microscopes only reach 20%. The RCM2.5 is characterised by the freedom and flexibility of being able to change the camera depending on the application. Moreover, the ability to conduct Near Infrared (NIR) Imaging is ideal for researchers working in the field of molecular biology and imaging, as this advanced system allows you to work efficiently with infrared probes.
