Fiber Photometry with Fluorescence Mini Cubes (1-2 sites)
The one-site fiber photometry experiments may require a Fluorescence Mini Cube (FMC) with different excitation and detection channels, optional optogenetically synchronized activation/silencing channel, etc., directly affecting the number of the fluorescence cube ports. Additionally, the fiber-optic tether leading to the animal needs a Pigtailed 1x1 Fiber-optic Rotary Joint. The two-site fiber photometry site requires two FMC cubes and a Pigtailed 2x2 Fiber-optic Rotary Joint. As there are several possibilities of assigning FMC ports, our cube classification is based on the number of ports. So far, we offer FMC models with 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 ports. The role of FMC cubes is to combine excitation light and separate fluorescence light.
