FluoView FV1200MPE femtoCARS Add-on

The femtoCARS equipped FV1200MPE provides a label-free lipid imaging capability based on molecular vibrations using the Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) microscopy method. In the Olympus design, the CARS imaging mode can be combined with two photon excitation fluorescence (TPEF) and second harmonic generation (SHG) imaging modes as a multimodal femtosecond laser imaging station. CARS is one of a number of intrinsic imaging modes requiring no extrinsic label. Because it relies on molecular vibrations rather than traditional fluorescence, there is no photobleaching.
