OASIS  – Optical Activation, Stimulation and Imaging System

Ground-breaking platforms for in vivo  optogenetics and Ca2+ -imaging.


Microscope Imaging and Cellular-Resolution Optogenetics Platform

The OASIS Micro is a ground-breaking microscope platform for all-optical cellular-resolution optogenetics and imaging in small cortical or deep-brain areas of a head-fixed animal. Simultaneously image small cortical or deep brain regions and perform neuron-specific targeted optogenetics with the addition of the Polygon400.

  • Small cortical area or deep-brain for in vivo imaging and optogenetics
  • Cellular-resolution optogenetics
  • Reconfigurable platform
  • Designed for in vivo experiments

Reconfigurable In Vivo Microscope Platform for Imaging and Optogenetics

Mightex’s OASIS Micro is designed as a reconfigurable optical microscope system for in vivo imaging and optogenetics. The final system can be tailored to performance requirements for unique applications. This can include major features such as adding a second and third illumination source, or a dual-camera imaging system, as well as fine details including compatibility features for certain cameras and objectives.

Simplistic Design for In Vivo Experiments

The OASIS Micro is designed for in vivo experiments with a minimalist design. A heavy-duty precision XYZ stage is mounted on the support structure and the OASIS optical assembly is in turn mounted on the XYZ stage. The XYZ stage controls the lateral motion as well as the focus of the system.
