Technology Overview

Imaging of acute brain slices or cultured tissues makes possible to study cells in a controlled environment outside of a living organism. Gradient contrast illumination eases camera guided patch-clamping while transmitted fluorescence detectors enhance signal collection and SNR.


  • high sensitivity GaAsP PMTs for transmitted green and red fluorescence

  • gradient contrast illumination with LED source operating at 840 nm

  • oil condenser NA 1.4

  • high quality cell visualization


  • gradient contrast illumination helps to navigate in the sample

  • patch-clamping and various electrophysiological studies

  • transmitted detectors increase the SNR of fluorescence detection

Optional modules
