Scientifica Multiphoton Galvo System
For in vivo and in vitro imaging with the greatest flexibility, look no further than the award-winning Multiphoton Galvo System.
Available in a variety of configurations, this multiphoton imaging system enables you to perform deep two-photon and three-photon fluorescence imaging, and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM). You can easily adjust scanning speeds and patterns to suit your individual application, making this flexible system ideal for a variety of imaging experiments.
Flexible scanning arrangements
Adjustable to suit your needs. Increase the yield and accuracy of your results when studying small cellular structures, such as a spine or bouton on a dendrite or axon, with region of interest scanning and line scanning.
Obtain outstanding images of the finest structures deep within your sample. Easily produce stunning three-dimensional reconstructions, thanks to multiphoton optical sectioning.
Fast frame rates
Capture fast biological processes; the galvanometer scan mirrors facilitate frame rates of up to 2 or 4 frames per second with unidirectional or bi-directional scanning respectively, at 512 x 512 pixels.
Pioneering slim design
The compact and flexible design of the Multiphoton Galvo System, with either the slimline SliceScope or VivoScope frame, means you can easily integrate imaging with other techniques, such as electrophysiology.
Easily convert between in vivo and in vitro
Perform all of your experiments on one rig; the SliceScope’s unique removable sub-stage means you can easily convert between different configurations.
Highly accurate imaging of small structures
Achieve highly accurate imaging of small structures with no loss of signal at the edge of the image with the uniform ‘spot size’, achieved by the relay lens system within the Scientifica galvo scan head.
Upgradeable to FLIM
Compatible with the Scientifica FLIM Upgrade Kit for simultaneous fluorescence intensity and fluorescence lifetime imaging, in up to two colour channels.
Perform three-photon imaging
The large back aperture objective scan heads are coated for wavelengths of 1300 nm and beyond, giving you more experimental flexibility and three-photon capability.
Configurable to suit your needs
The Scientifica Multiphoton Galvo System is available for large or small back aperture objectives, the SliceScope or VivoScope frame and a range of detection modules including Chromoflex, FLIM, MDU and MDU XL.

"We have been using two multiphoton imaging systems from Scientifica, and have been very pleased with their performance. The systems are robustly constructed and designed to be easily integrated with electrophysiology. We have also been very pleased with the after-sales support provided by Scientifica."Professor Leon Lagnado University of Sussex
"The simple design improved the detection efficiency by positioning the detectors very close to the microscope objective. Also, the system can scan the samples pretty rapidly, which helps the reduction of phototoxicity and photobleaching."Dr Kim Dore University of California
