Scitech appointed distributor of Mightex Systems

Scitech has been appointed
the distributor for the Mightex Systems range of advanced light delivery
systems, fluorescence microscopy illumination systems, optogenetics patterned stimulators,
microscope light sources, multi-wavelength LED sources and LED Controllers for
bioscience and live animal research in Australia and New Zealand.

With Mightex
illuminators, optogenetics researchers can investigate behaviours of neurons
and their circuits, by precisely delivering light – of different colors and
with high spatial and temporal resolutions – to stimulate/silence selected
neurons. In addition, they can stimulate/silence neurons independently and/or
simultaneously at different locations. Researchers can map synaptic circuitry
and neurotransmitter receptors.by delivering the light with millisecond
temporal resolution to evoke synaptic transmission between neurons.

Mightex’s
ground-breaking Oasis Implant system allows scientists to simultaneously image
and optogenetically manipulate targeted neurons with sub-cellular resolution in
freely behaving animals.

Mightex light
delivery systems:

  • cover a wide spectrum from deep UV to VIS to NIR;
  • cover all possible optical formats including
    collimated, uniform, focused, fiber-coupled, and lightguide-coupled LEDs; and
  • range from single-wavelength, to multiple-wavelength,
    to wavelength-switchable, and to spectrum-tailorable/programmable.
