TILL Photonics Polychrome V monochromator


Polychrome V monochromator

The Polychrome V is an ultra fast switching monochromator with a fully digital high precision galvanometer driven grating. Whether you do high speed ratio imaging experiments, GFP-imaging with a variety of fluorophores to be distinguished, FRET with the faintest signals to be detected, Photometry with very high time resolution or TIRF in combination with wide?, the Polychrome V with its optimized condensers for all major microscopes is your superior companion.

    Polychrome V: Problem with Ignition

    I have a polychrome V, with the first lampe it was very fine, but after 3 years of usage we have to replace the lampe. I put exactly the same model from USHIO (UXL-S150MO) but after about 5 On/ Off cycles, problems with ignition begin to happen...
