Mightex Polygon UHC – Ultra High Contrast DMD Pattern Illuminator

Mightex’s market-leading Polygon DMD pattern illuminators provide precise spatiotemporal control of light with subcellular resolution, making them the perfect illumination tool for life science research. The Polygon UHC incorporates the latest in digital micro-mirror technology to achieve the greatest available contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1, unlocking countless research opportunities for the bioscience community.

The Polygon UHC can create opto-genetic grid scans with a greater number of grids for higher spatial resolution circuit mapping. This allows the user to target optical stimulation more precisely to smaller regions of interest.

With the Polygon UHC, only the regions of interest are targeted by photo-stimulation, decreasing unwanted photo-activation of surrounding light sensitive areas in the tissue of interest.

The Polygon UHC produces more grey levels, leading to seamless optical intensity application. Further, this larger dynamic range is relevant for studies requiring fine control of low intensity stimulation parameters, such as retina-related studies.

The Polygon UHC can be seamlessly integrated with 2-photon microscopes allowing for easy transition between patterned stimulation and 2-photon imaging.
