Easy and reliable imaging spectrometer for microscopes
The M185 RE is based on our scientific grade multi-point spectrometer S185 SE. Extending the S185 SE with a relay lens, making it ready for microscopic applications. Take care that your microscope has C-mount. Moreover, you can use the M185 RE even standalone in the laboratory. Change lenses such as the 10mm or 23mm on-the-fly and adapt the field of view (FOV) by this to your requirements, the relay optics makes it possible.
The M185 RE features all the advanced hyperspectral Imaging properties of the S185 and adds a proper adaption to typical microscopic setups from Zeiss, Olympus or Leica. The working principle of the device is very close to common snapshot RGB cameras. Your workflow will not change in comparison to your RGB documentation system except a much higher level of spectral information in each pixel. If you are interested in observing fast kinetics, fluorescence signals or cell changes, we believe this is the easiest way to start with microscopic hyperspectral imaging.
The difference to push-broom technology
The M185 RE uses a unique technology which establishes a fair balance between spatial and spectral resolution. The result is an imaging spectrometer with no need for scanning (like push-broom technology) or image combination after fast filter shifts. Our technology provides clean hyperspectral images out of the box.
