Ratiometric Imaging: Description and Capabilities
The PTI Monochromator Ratiometric Imaging System
The PTI Monochromator system can image a wide variety of fluorescent probes. Currently, it is used for ratiometric imaging of Fura-2AM labeled preparations. The PTI DeltaRAM X Monochromator can generate excitation energy from 290-650 nm, with a continuously variable bandpass from 0-25 nm, depending on application. It can switch between wavelengths in less than 2 milliseconds to facilitate ratiometry.
