Technology Overview

The Liquid lens objective kit contains a carefully chosen objective and a fast-focusing element which utilizes electrically controlled shape-changing membrane. This flexible membrane enables the objective to switch quickly between focal planes.

Features

  • focuses with nanometer precision

  • 200 µm focal range

  • 10 ms focal-plane switching time

  • fast settling time

  • transmission 90% at 800 nm

  • aperture 10 mm

  • comes with a 40× magnification objective

  • no mechanical perturbation

  • 3D volume scanning

Benefits

  • fast switch between the focal planes

  • 3D volume scanning enables you to reveal activity of the neural network or other cell groups

  • imaging at multiple tissue depths near simultaneously

Optional modules

Femtonics Technology
