The HoloStim-3D seamlessly integrates with the HyperScope, an award-winning multiphoton imaging system, to create an industry-leading spatial light modulator (SLM) system for all-optical interrogation of neural networks with previously unachievable performance.
Axon femtosecond lasers are a family of discrete wavelength, ultrafast sources. Compact design at a breakthrough price point enable a range of life sciences and instrumentation applications.
Axon 920 is ideal for two-photon excitation of green fluorophores and calcium indicators such as GCaMP. Similarly, the Axon 1064 laser is perfect for red-shifted indicators. The laser can be optionally equipped with fully integrated Total Power Control (TPC) for fast power modulation and flyback blanking.
