OEM Opportunities
Etaluma offers high resolution optics, microscopy components, automation, and complete imaging solutions. And we can customize! If you are looking to add imaging to your instrument or application, we have multiple options for you.

Choose Etaluma’s State of the Art Microscopy Modules for Your Development Project

When designing products that include a microscopy or cell imaging function, often one must decide what to buy and what to design in-house. An OEM-components partnering strategy can significantly augment the expertise of your own team and eliminate the risks from not knowing what you don’t know. It can free up internal resources for other projects, reduce long-term costs, and ultimately help get your products to market faster.

Compact 3-color fluorescence Optics Module with USB3 camera

    Solid-state optics in which the 3 channels turn on consecutively
    Etaluma’s Proprietary Optics Engine (photo above)

    An entire 3-color fluorescence microscope in the palm of your hand! Or in your instrument’s hardware.  Important features:

    • Solid-state channel switching with no moving parts and no pixel shift
    • Uses multi-bandpass filter sets from Semrock or Chroma
    • Etaluma’s high resolution, near diffraction-limited optics
    • 4-inch light path with high photon capture
    • C-mount for use of newer generation USB3 cameras (see below)
    • Now configured with an LED controller for fine control of LED illumination (see below)
    • Compatible with RMS-threaded, infinity corrected, 45 mm parfocal distance objectives (or other objectives with adaptors)

    Contact us to configure these near diffraction-limited optics to your own specifications.

    Choice of Fluorescence Wavelengths

    Our standard Optics Module detects the following:

    • Blue (e.g., Dapi):  Excitation 370-410 nm; Emission 429-462 nm
    • Green (e.g., FITC):  Excitation 473-491 nm; Emission 502-561 nm
    • Red: (e.g., Texas Red):  Excitation 580-598 nm; Emission 612-680 nm

    We have built other color combinations as well including those for Cy3 and Cy5.  Let us know what you need.
