The Olympus FluoView FVMPE-RS is designed for high-precision imaging enabling ultra-fast scanning and stimulation within specimens.
Suited to electrophysiology and optogenetic studies, the FVMPE-RS multiphoton microscope is designed for high-speed calcium and in vivo imaging, peristalsis and blood flow studies and functional brain research - among others.
The precision timing on the system allows for microsecond repeatability and control of multiple imaging and stimulation protocols, as well as millisecond repeatability over days of time-lapse imaging.
The FVMPE-RS captures 438 frames per second (fps) at 512x32 and also 512x512 images at 30 fps without any reduction of the field of view, a critical feature for many functional imaging studies, Olympus suggests.
The system’s multipoint mapping capability allows ultra-high-speed measurement of rapid fluctuations in groups of cells for functional imaging studies, 3D intensity measurement or mapping with high signal-to-noise performance.
The FVMPE-RS offers optimal performance when imaging live cells and tissues. It provides multicolour, multiphoton excitation and imaging with a choice of lasers, along with an industry-first four-axis auto-alignment capability for precise colocalisation and coalignment without pixel shift.
The system’s multichannel analogue box for triggering, synchronisation and signal input provides additional support for advanced electrophysiology studies and other applications requiring external device triggering.
The advanced optional nosepiece piezo drive provides greater rigidity and faster z-plane stabilisation to ensure accurate and repeatable high-speed focus performance.
