Femto-S Bridge

/ Spectrometers

Special microscopes : custom designed two-photon microscope from our partner Femtonics.

Femto-S Bridge is a special edition of the FemtoSmart microscope which is manufactured to have for extreme freedom in positioning of the body. It involves all advantages of the FemtoSmart series but it is extended to studies which need huge place for the sample or accessories therefore allowing functional brain imaging in head fixed mice navigating in a virtual reality environment.

  • Flexible objective positioning with high precision
  • Backlash-free, highly stable in all positions
  • Minimized optical path to the detectors equipped to the tilting unit
  • ∼40% higher SNR as compared to other solutions
  • Green lamp included
  • Changeable filter set prior to detectors
  • Accepts both conventional and large back aperture objectives
