The 2-color fluorescence microscope body combines two CMOS sensors for simultaneous imaging of two different fluorophores. Due to the chromatic aberrations of GRIN lenses, the position of each image sensor is adjusted to correct the chromatic shift and image the same object plane in both colors. As the chromatic shift is related to the length of the GRIN lens, the correction is valid for one specific length of GRIN lens. For now, Green (GFP like) + Red (RFP like) systems are offered: two systems optimized for Snap-in Imaging Cannulas type D and type V, and one system optimized for surface imaging.
• The Electrical Cable for 2-color Fluorescence Microscope Bodies is required for the use of this device (see Related Products).
• The optical fiber length is adjusted to fit the desired electrical cable length.
• Every microscope body comes with a protective cap.

Application note for the surgical implantation & installation of the 2-color fluorescence microscopeDownload (3.62M)
For deeper brain regions (150 µm to 8mm depth) use the Snap-in Imaging Cannula Model L with image guiding gradient-index rod lens that brings the image from inside the brain to the skull surface. Snap-in Imaging Cannulas are compatible with all Fluorescence Microscope Bodies of the corresponding model.
For areas near the brain surface (<150 µm depth) use the Snap-in Imaging Cannula Model S. Snap-in Imaging Cannulas are compatible with all Fluorescence Microscope Bodies of the corresponding model.
