SM-1 Bio™ UV-Visible-NIR Microscope

The SM-1 Bio™ UV-visible-NIR microscope is designed for biological analysis. With a spectral range that covers the ultraviolet, visible and NIR regions, the SM-1 Bio™ microscope is commonly used to image biological samples that are normal transparent. It embodies advanced optics for cutting edge UV, visible and NIR range imaging and visualization of biological samples. Samples can be imaged from the deep UV all the way into the far near infrared. The system is very easy to use and very durable.

The SM-1 Bio™ UV microscope can image in transmission and fluorescence from the UV, visible, and NIR regions with high spatial resolution...all with the same microscope and without swapping components. UV-visible-NIR reflectance is an optional imaging package.

The SM-1 Bio™ UV Microscope can image from the deep ultraviolet to near infrared with one seamless operation. It can acquire images in absorbance and fluorescence. It can be fitted with both the DirecVu™ to view samples by eye as well as with the high resolution digital imaging system.
