ALAZAR TECH ATS9440 DIGITIZER
125 gigasamples per second at 14 bit depth. 4 channels. We trigger the digitizer off of every single laser pulse.
FEMTO HIGH SPEED CURRENT AMPLIFIERS
In order to digitize at 80MHz, we need to use amplifiers with the bandwidth to handle this speed. These Femto DHPCA-100 amplifiers are up to the task. Unrivaled speed and signal.
We use a Cambridge 6215H galvo scanner and Cambridge CRS 8K resonant scanner. Providing 30 fps imaging. Scan parameters, such as zoom, field size, and scan rate are controlled in our software.
FULL 2" OPTICS ON THE COLLECTION PATH
Our Z-max designed collection path is the widest on the market. At resonant scan rates, laser dwell time is low, and emission photons become very precious. Capture them all with our 2" diameter collection path.
Gated PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBES
We use the most sensitive PMTs on the market: Hamamatsu H11706-40 GaAsP PMTs, which have a 135 degree angle of acceptance. These PMTs can be gated within 400 nanoseconds and are ideal for experiments combining ontogenetic stimulation with calcium imaging.
Use any lens you like! Our microscope will work with any lens on the market, including the new Olympus lenses optimized for Clarity. We can fill any size back aperture and collect all of the light.
Optotune electrically focus-tunable lens for fast, inertialess z-focus.
