Mightex Polygon DMD pattern illuminator for targeted photostimulation

Monday, 18 January, 2021 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd



Mightex’s Polygon DMD pattern illuminator provides precise spatiotemporal control of light with subcellular resolution, making it a useful illumination tool for life science research. It integrates into any electrophysiology, two-photon or confocal microscope set-up and includes powerful, user-friendly software to help execute sophisticated patterned illumination experiments for research.

The product uses digital mirror device (DMD) technology to illuminate multiple regions simultaneously. A DMD is composed of hundreds of thousands of micro-mirrors that can be individually turned on to reflect light onto the sample. Thus, the user can control each mirror to control the area(s) of illumination and create any number of different-sized patterns. The DMD pattern illuminator can be mounted into the infinity-path of any microscope.

The device enables scientists to precisely control where light will hit their sample. With subcellular resolution, the product can illuminate any cellular feature in any shape or size simultaneously on their sample, providing flexibility when it comes down to wavelength selection. From the UV to VIS/NIR range, the product can project light of different colours suitable for users’ light-sensitive constructs.

The DMD pattern illuminator can control the initiation, duration and intensity of light stimulation patterns. Additionally, users can create different waveforms to control the light intensity and duration outputted from the device. It can be used with a wide range of light sources, including LEDs and lasers, and is also compatible with Mightex’s OASIS Implant for freely behaving imaging and optogenetics and OASIS Macro for cortex-wide imaging and optogenetics.
