All-in-one two-photon microscope (FEMTO3D ATLAS)

/ Microscopy

The all-in-one solution for extremely high-speed 3D imaging

The FEMTO3D Atlas microscope combines high-tech science, engineering and refinement in 3D measurements and technology into an all-in-one solution. The unique properties of Atlas enables its users to scan neuronal, dendritic, or other biological processes in 3D, up to a million times faster than classical scanning methods, at a preserved two photon resolution.

All your needs in the field of multiphoton imaging can be satisfied with one single system:

  1. 3D random-access scanning
  2. High-speed arbitrary frame scanning
  3. Upgrade or individual system
  4. 3D anti-motion technology
  5. 3D photostimulation with imaging

The Femto3D Atlas can be combined with a preexisting upright microscope through its adjustable, modular frame. Therefore, it can extend existing microscopes with a fast 3D functional imaging capability. To learn more about FEMTO3D Atlas microscope, upload our brochure

FEMTO3D Atlas uses electrically tunable acousto-optic deflectors (AODs) as scanners, directing the laser beam in X, Y and Z directions. It makes the positioning speed of the focal spot equivalent in all directions, and independent of the distance.

Those deflectors do not contain mechanical components (e.g. scanning mirrors), which would slow the movement or disturb the model animal.
