Twinter Subminiature High-resolution Microscope

The Uscope plays a great role in helping scientist studying the behaving of living species, especially rodents. The device is able torecord the neural cell activity of the freely moving animals and gives the advantage to combine cellular activity with macroscopic with macroscopic behavioural symptoms allowing scientist to study the neural circuit basis of behaviour.

Scope of Application: activity of neural circuits, neural pharmacology, behaviour, cognitive neuroscience, decision making, neurodegenerative diseases.

Technological advantages

  1. Super small weight and volume suitable for brain research in the free movement state of rodents
  2. Multiple wavelength possibilities for different dyes
  3. Multifunctional acquisition software capable of real-time adjusting the parameters such as gain, brightness and resolution
  4. Strong analytical software for automatic cell identification, gray value curve analysis, Ca-signal detection

Data acquisition box

The Data conversion box connects Uscope to the PC, making data collection more convenient and easy.

  1. Portable, efficient and stable
  2. Real-time high-resolution video shooting
  3. I/O ports capable to make the make the hardware part synchronous
  4. Brightness and camera parameters are real-time adjustable according to the users demands
  5. Directly connected to Pc without any need of external Power Supply
