FEMTOSmart Galvo Software

FEMTOSmart Galvo microscopes can be set up with both the default FEMTOSmart software and with our optional MATLAB-based software suite (MES) that implements special line-scanning patterns.

Key features

  • Various 2D ROI scanning and photostimulation methods
  • Fast control and automation of measurements
  • Efficient batch processing of measurement data

Measurement control

MES is capable of performing all standard microscopy functions and it fully integrates the control of all hardware units in the microscope:

  • focusing,
  • laser intensity, safety shutters,
  • PMT gain and gating,
  • auxiliary digital and analog channels to interface stimulators or electrophysiology,
  • behavior control devices,
  • sample stage control.

Galvo scanning methods

MES supports coordinate selection and measurement control of various 2D pattern scanning technologies:

  • raster scanning,
  • multiple frame scanning,
  • multiple line scanning,
  • folded frame scanning,
  • line photostimulation stimulus patterns.

Data access

MES stores data in open-standard HDF5 format.  To analyze data, MES offers built-in analysis functions or users can easily access file content from the MATLAB IDE using the application programming interface.


MES 6.5 comes with several new features and improved stability
