Multiphoton microscopy is a powerful and versatile technique, applied in numerous fields in biology, such as neurology or embryology. It relies on an ultrafast laser to excite fluorescent molecules or proteins and realize optical sectioning while at the same time reducing the scattering into the tissues.
Mikan and Goji are ideal excitation source for multiphoton microscopy. These lasers are air-cooled, provide high average power and energy per pulse in a very small footprint. Their infrared wavelength minimizes autofluorescence, scattering in biological tissues and cell toxicity, and is perfectly suited for red shift fluorescent proteins and deep tissue imaging.
