Mightex Polygon1000 pattern illuminators for life science research

Scitech presents Polygon1000 pattern illuminators from Mightex, designed
to provide precise spatiotemporal control of light with sub-cellular resolution,
making them the perfect illumination tools for life science research.

Available in two versatile models, Polygon1000 pattern illuminators are
compatible with any microscope.

The Polygon1000-G is a flexible solution for patterned illumination as it
can be used with any light source (350-700nm) that accepts a 3mm core
lightguide. This pattern illuminator provides future flexibility for different
wavelengths and light sources, depending on your application. Key applications
include Neuroscience Optogenetics, Cell Biology Optogenetics, Photoactivation
and Photoconversion.

The Polygon1000-DL is a flexible solution for large field-of-view or
high-power patterned illumination applications, as it can be used with any fibre-coupled
light source (400-700nm) such as high-power lasers. This Polygon1000 model has
been designed for high-power applications, such as In Vivo Optogenetics. Key applications
also include Cortex-Wide Optogenetics and Photoactivation.

Compared to the Polygon400 series, Polygon1000 comes with enhanced new
features such as 82% increase in illumination field-of-view; finer pixel
resolution within larger field-of-view; 1.65 times faster pattern of switching
speeds; 4ms uploading speed per frame; and 45% increase in optical power
density at the specimen level.

The increased maximum frame rate results in better temporal resolution
for advanced physiologically-relevant experiments and virtually simultaneous
2-colour illumination of distinct ROIs. Faster uploading time enables the
Polygon1000 to perform real-time pattern illumination for closed-loop
experiments (faster than HDMI refresh rates [60Hz/120Hz]). Large chip and
improved optics enhance transmission efficiency enabling the Polygon1000 to
achieve increased power density at the specimen level, thereby giving the
researcher more room for intensity control.
