FIRST IN PHOTONICS
Photonic Solutions now offer the two-photon laser scanning microscope range from the innovative and highly respected Hungarian specialists, Femtonics.
With a focus on custom designed 2-dimensional systems for physiological and biophysical investigations, Femtonics’ systems are tuned for the fastest 2D and 3D optical measurements and have recently pioneered real time 3-D imaging technology from the Femto3D-AO.
The Femto3D-AcoustoOptic microscope is the first fast, 3D, two-photon microscope on the market capable of scanning neuronal, dendritic, and other neuropil activities at scanning speeds up to 53 kHz speed whilst still preserving two-photon resolution.
For users looking for flexible space under the objective choose from Femtonics FemtoSmart range available in either Galvo, Resonant or dual scan head capabilities, this microscope has been designed with a specially elevated body, which allows extremely free positioning of the sample below the objective. The footprint of the leg is only 250 mm x 250 mm and the objective can move in a 50 mm range in the Z direction and the microscope can move up to 50mm in the XY direction around the base.
The FemtoSmart from Femtonics is the first in a new generation of two-photon microscopes which have been designed with a specially elevated body that results in a small footprint of only 250x250 mm. This ensures there is a large space below the objective for complete freedom in positioning the sample but also enables the user to accomdate a host of in-vivo accessories.
In the past ten-year Femtonics have developed and patented many new technologies such that they can now provide their customers with the Femto3D-AcoustoOptic microscope which is the first, truly high speed, randon access 3D, two-photon microscope on the market.
The Femto3D-AO is capable of scanning neuronal, dendritic, and other neuropil activities about one million times faster as compared to previous realizations within a large (about cubic millimeter) scanning volume whilst preserving two-photon resolution.
The Femto2D-Dual microscope has the ability to perform dual scanning using both galvo and resonant scanners in tandem. The microscope offers the same flexible scanning patterns of the Femto2D-Galvo for flexible ROIs combined with the fast imaging speeds of the Femto2D-Resonant.
Raster, random access point, multiple line (up to 40 lines scan @ 5 ms), folded frame, multiple frame (up to 8 fps @ 512x512 pixels) and random point access are attainable. Combine this with the fast imaging speeds of up to 31 frames per sec for 512x512 pixels over the entire FOV.
The Femto2D-Resonant microscope is the microscope of choice for two-photon in-vivo imaging of the entire field of view with high frame rates.
Thanks to the 8kHz oscillating speed of the fast mirror, the Femto2D-Resonant is capable of gathering images at 31 frames per sec for 512x512 pixels and 600x600um2. Record up to 500fps for 512x32 pixels and 16,000 lines/sec for straight lines
The Femto2D-Galvo from Femtonics is a galvanometric scanner based two-photon microscope which positioning freedom supports flexible approaches for Region of Interest (ROI) creation.
The Femto2D-Galvo offers flexible scanning patterns such as raster, random access point, multiple line (up to 40 lines scan @ 5 ms), folded frame, multiple frame (up to 8 fps @ 512x512 pixels) and random point access.
