Fast and Silent Imaging at tunable speed
AODs are fast pointers but also fast scanners (patented) which can surpass resonant galvanometric mirrors, while remaining completely silent.
The inertia-free angular scanning yields utmost linearity, tunability and repeatability, as compared to the sinusoidal scanning behavior of resonant galvos.
Tunable dwell time (50ns/pixel → ∞/pixel)
Quiet scanning for unbiased behaviour experiments
Freely selectable Multi ROIs up to maximum speed
Multi-plane imaging at different Z with no moving parts
The AODscope platform features a future-ready opto-mechanics design, imagined for easy customization and integration of new features.
We want our customers to have an instrument with an unlimited lifetime.
In vitro or in vivo microscope frame
Our team works on the upcoming breakthroughs : adaptive optics, tunable lenses, temporal focusing, multiplexing, new detectors. All these developments will be compatible with the platforms.
