TriM Scope™ II Multiphoton Microscope

The TriM Scope™ II is a modular platform for intravital multiphoton microscopy and optogenetic manipulation, which can be equipped with a variety of lasers, scanner configurations, detectors, and dedicated modules for in vivo imaging. Thanks to its modularity, the system can be adapted to various applications, including deep tissue multicolor imaging, intravital 3D time-lapse measurements, and calcium monitoring under natural and biased conditions. Thus, the TriM Scope II Multiphoton Microscope can be used for a large variety of applications, ranging from developmental biology to immuno-oncology and neuroscience.
