FV10MP-BXD-GAP photodetector
Olympus' FV10MP-BXD-GAP photodetector is designed for enhanced sensitivity when performing multi-photon fluorescence imaging.
The non-descanned detector unit is designed for capturing very faint fluorescence signals and for minimising the laser power required to generate a detectable signal. Exceptional sensitivity is achieved by coating the photoelectric surface of the detector with Gallium Arsenide Phosphide (GaAsP), which offers superior quantum efficiency compared to conventional PMTs. In addition, noise is kept to an absolute minimum via the use of Peltier cooling, boosting signal-to-noise ratio. The detector unit also includes standard PMTs, allowing these to be used for identifying regions of interest (ROI) which can then be scanned using the GaAsP PMTs, maximising their lifetime. When used in combination with a member of the Olympus range of FluoView FV1000MPE multiphoton microscope systems, researchers can produce insightful images, even when using advanced irradiation techniques, low laser power or very faint fluorophores.
