Faster scanning with the new Multiphoton Resonant System

The HyperScope multiphoton imaging system now has advanced imaging capabilities; the introduction of an extended wavelength lens set means you can image deeper and through thin scattering layers in in vivo samples. Learn more here.

Faster scanning with the new Multiphoton Resonant System


The resonant mirror in the scan head enables imaging of fast activity within cell networks.

Using a resonant mirror is ideal for applications such as live Calcium imaging where researchers need to image activity over a larger area. This enables visualisation of the cellular structure and record activity such as; action potentials, neuro-transmitter release, calcium waves and population activity.

Additionally the fast frame rates allows for smooth visual feedback when trying to position an electrode using multiphoton guided patch clamping.

The high quality optical components within the scanhead makes it possible to achieve high resolution and image structures such as dendrites and axons as well as enabling deep within tissue.

This "resonant" scan head also benefits from a compact design and simple conversion between using in vivo or in vitro samples, which has been a huge advantage of the popular Scientifica "galvo" scan head.
