Femtonics specializes in manufacturing two-photon laser scanning microscopes. Building on breakthroughs achieved in the bordering fields of optics and quantum mechanics, our systems provide the most innovative technologies, fitting a wide variety of in vivo and in vitro biological applications. We dedicate ourselves to neuroscience and aim to discover new technologies, to aid researchers striving to understand the nervous system, its pathomechanisms, and to support pharmaceutical development. All the creative work and investments poured into our products and technology, combined with a careful monitoring of our customers’ requirements, produces remarkable results. In the complex and sophisticated world of science, we give our clients a real personalized touch in the form or a unique, powerful laboratory tool, fitting their vision perfectly.
Our flagship product, the FEMTO3D Atlas is a pioneer in the field of 3D multiphoton microscopy by using 3D acousto-optic (AO) technology, and it is a unique laboratory tool capable of performing ultrafast real-time in vivo 3D imaging. Furthermore, we also offer conventional systems: the FEMTOSmart series can be complemented by an array of optional modules for various biological applications, fitting any scientific need.
We excel in combining the highest level of technology with a researcher’s scientific knowledge, background, experience and long-term goals in the greatly competitive market of laser scanning microscopy. Our AO technology has won several prestigious grants and prizes and has been validated by groundbreaking scientific results published in high-impact scientific journals (Science, Nature Methods, Nature Neuroscience). Our professionals hold presentations at the most prestigious neuroscientific conferences regularly.
Our company was founded in 2005 by two scientists as a spin-off R&D company with roots in the Institute of Experimental Medicine. The main mission of the founders was to reform the established techniques of neuroscience and human diagnostics. Since then, we have expanded into a highly qualified multidisciplinary team of optical and mechanical engineers, physicists, biologists, physicians, mathematicians and scientists from many related fields. Our performance-driven attitude, unshakable focus on our customers and our determination to address emerging scientific needs has resulted in 20 world records, 120+ installed setups, 300 satisfied users and 140+ publications.

Peter Csikota is currently responsible for the Asia-Pacific Region, Russia and the Middle East. He is always inspired by open-minded researchers and he regards finding the best solution for their scientific needs in cooperation with them as the most valued result of his job. As he has worked as a neuroscientist for several years, he can understand the specific application requirements of his customers and provide them with a tool which makes their research unique, outstanding and fruitful.
Adrienn Havlik is a Customer Service Specialist with a special focus on key account management. She has a strong passion to provide excellent customer service for all existing Femtonics clients and nurturing after-sales system upgrades. Her goal is to keep the customer service department running efficiently, to maintain and increase customer satisfaction by providing problem-solving resources, develop loyalty, and retention and meet the client’s expectations.
Reka Kovacs is currently responsible for the countries of United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Israel and Singapore. Her position gives her a whole new perspective on research, and she is as eager to develop her competence in multiphoton microscopy as she is to assist scientists in finding the most suitable setups for their research. She has previous neuroscientific experience in the molecular background of synapse elimination, which she gathered during her years of doctoral studies.
Richard Kozma is currently responsible for the North American region. He is passionate to provide knowledge for all scientists in order to find the best system for their research needs and projects. He likes to support his customers’ research from grant application until publication. He has previous research experience with in vivo and in vitro electrophysiological measurements and microscopic imaging. He is most interested in the role of the interneurons in fear learning, and in the application of the acousto optical deflectors to record even GEVIs in the kHz range in neuroscientific research.
Eszter Marko is currently responsible for Scandinavia, the Benelux countries, Poland and the Czech Republic. She is driven to assist researchers in choosing the most suitable systems by her admiration towards neuroscience and the complexity of two-photon microscopes. Additionally, it has always been her priority to represent innovative Hungarian companies who are market leaders in their field, building international customer relationships in the life sciences industry ever since she graduated as a cellular and molecular biologist.
