Ordering Code:
  • Surface Snap-in microscope bodies are optimized to image brain structures up to 150 um deep without using invasive implants. As no GRIN lenses are being used, the image quality of these microscopes is higher than the one of deep brain microscopes.
    The long working distance of surface microscopes bodies allows to image brain structures through a chronically implanted glass window. 

    • The ultralight fiberglass jacket is lighter and more flexible, the lightweight metal jacket is more robust but heavier.
    • The standard electrical cable length is 1000 mm. Other values on request (up to 3000 mm).
    • The optical fiber length is adjusted to fit the desired electrical cable length.
    • Every microscope body comes with a protective cap. 

    The following video demonstrates the implantation of a snap-in cannula and the installation of a miniaturized fluorescence microscope (the implantation of surface and deep brain imaging cannulas are similar).
