|Thorlabs’ OTM211 provides a complete system, including a Nikon Eclipse Ti-S inverted microscope, for optical manipulation and quantitative force measurements.
The optical tweezers module attaches directly to the back port of the microscope, where a dichroic mirror directs the laser beams towards the microscope objective. In addition to the microscope, this system comes complete with the laser source, a high-resolution XYZ piezo-driven stage, force measurement module, control and data acquisition electronics, and a computer with preinstalled software.
The included software package provides full control of the traps, as well as force calibration and measurements.
|Thorlabs’ OTM200 provides an add-on system capable of integrating into an existing inverted microscope system. It is compatible with platforms of most major manufacturers, such as Nikon, Olympus and Leica.
This system includes the laser source, control and data acquisition electronics, and a computer with preinstalled software. The included software package provides full control of the traps.
This system features a wide range of customized options. Besides configurations for different microscopes, it also supports other camera models and can be offered with customized sets of optics and additional imaging modalities.
