DeltaRAM™ X microscope Illuminator

Quantitative intracellular ion research benefits substantially from using the patented DeltaRAM X microscope Illuminator. It uses a Random-Access Monochromator (RAM), which is based on galvanometers and capable of switching between any wavelength in 2 milliseconds.

A power supply, high-intensity xenon light source, DeltaRAM X monochromator, TTL shutter, and flexible liquid light guide are all included in the self-contained, whole illuminator known as the DeltaRAM X.

A simple analog voltage control is used to set the wavelength. A microscope adapter for the fluorescence microscope and a USB or PCI DAC interface, depending on the software the user will be using to operate the illuminator, are all that is needed to complete the setup.
