Scientifica VivoScope

The finest in vivo imaging system for two-photon behavioural studies.

Ideal for larger in vivo samples, linear or spherical treadmills, large stereotaxic frames or other virtual reality set-ups.

Benefits

Extra space

The extended scan head gives more room between the light path onto your sample and the microscope frame without compromising stability (205.94 mm up from 130 mm).

Galvo or Resonant

The VivoScope is available with both galvo and resonant scan head options, depending on your experimental requirements.

Acoustic isolation

Our custom scan head enclosure integrates acoustic insulating foam to dramatically reduce the audible noise created by the resonant motor without affecting performance.

Patch under multiphoton illumination

The fast frame rate provides the visual feedback required to position your patch pipette accurately under infrared laser light.

Deep imaging for large populations of cells

Tailored to large back aperture objectives the entire field of view can be quickly scanned to monitor the activity from a large number of cells.

Control options

The VivoScope can be fully controlled in Scientifica's own SciScan software. It can also be driven by Vidrio Technologies ScanImage software.

Upgrade to the Scientifica ChromoFlex

Enhance the Multiphoton Imaging System by upgrading to the ChromoFlex.

The ChromoFlex replaces the above stage multiphoton detection unit (MDU) and enables simultaneous imaging of up to four different colour dyes with the increased sensitivity of GaAsP PMT detectors.
