The Innovation Award winner FEMTO3D Atlas offers an All-in-One two-photon system for scientists: it incorporates traditional galvo and resonant scanner-based microscope imaging techniques and combines them with the unique 3D imaging feature of acousto-optic scanner-based microscopes.
The FEMTOSmart series is the next step in Femtonics product evolution, fully customizable two-photon microscopes, which are primarily used in in vivo studies. Their special feature is the elevated body which can move in X, Y, and Z directions, providing ample room under the objective for optimal positioning of your sample. This feature makes them suitable for in vivo studies of model organisms ranging from zebra fish larvae, through mice navigating in virtual reality to even non-human primates.
“We acquired our Femtonics 2P system six years ago which enables us to combine imaging, uncaging and optogenetics. I have always been impressed how Femtonics strived to think together with us as users and aimed for the best possible solutions to customise the system to our needs. Their technical support has always been rapid and professional. The Femtonics set-up allows us to perform essential in vitro experiments and without reservations would strongly recommend them.”

“For a long time, we used to build our own two-photon rigs for studying retinal circuits. When we started to look at cortical circuits we realized that we need a much more polished system. We tried an established provider but quickly faced the constraint that the rigidity of their platform did not allow us to perform large-scale recordings efficiently. Femtonics was very open to help us in order to reach our experimental aims and remained extremely supportive ever since. In the last eight years we used their system every day and could acquire data from almost a thousand mice. I cannot recall any major holdup despite such a heavy-duty usage. In comparison, our laser still needs servicing every year.”

“The Femtonics team have provided us with an excellent service. Their extremely helpful ‘can do’ attitude has made for a first-class scientific relationship. The team have always provided an extremely prompt service, even outside standard working hours they have been ready and willing to assist. This level of service, combined with a very high level of technical knowledge has given us the confidence and security that a scientific research such as ours requires when servicing scientific research goals with high demands. All in all, I am very happy with the fast G/R line scans, the online software analyses and the competent service.”
