Easy and reliable imaging spectrometer for Microscopes
The M 185 is based on our scientific grade multi point spectrometer S 185. It 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 usual 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 UHD 185 uses a unique technology which establishes a fair balance between areal resolution 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 without any moving artifacts.
During the development of the Firefly we miniaturized our laboratory platform. The weight was reduced from 3 kg to a total weight of 470 g (including camera and optics). This was achieved by the use of lightweight and yet stable materials like aluminum and Kevlar. Due to the abstinence of any moving part, the package provides a light but longtime stable product.
