Ordering Code:
  • The Bundle-Imaging Fiber Photometry system with targeted optogenetics (BFTO) enables multi-site measurements through High-density Fiber-optic Patch Cords (HDP). These patch cords are available in either square or hexagonal patterns of 7, 9 or 19 fibers connected to the sample port, allowing combined optogenetics and photometry recording .


    Build-in LEDs combine Isosbestic & Functional GCaMP excitations with Red Fluorophore excitation. Isosbestic and functional fluorescent signals are recorded with the same image sensor by interleaving the excitations. Both the LED driver and the CMOS detector are integrated within the system. The stimulation pattern can vary in type, number and emitted wavelengths. For this purpose, a second similar high-density fiber optic patch cord is connected to the optogenetic port and fans out into separate connectors. Then, up to 19 independent optogenetic stimulation inputs can be connected depending on the needs of the experiment (one input per fiber connected to the sample port).
    The BFTO system with targeted optogenetics supports the following fluorophore and opsin combinations:

     

    Fluorophores

    Green Fluorophore (GCAMP, dLight)

    Exc 460-490nm / Em 500-540nm

    Red Fluorophore (RCAMP, Jrgeco1A, dTomato)

    Exc 555-570nm / Em 580-600nm

    Opsins

    ChR2 (450 nm)

    N/A1

    Sequential2

    ArchT (560 nm)

    Simultaneous3 or Sequential

    N/A1

    NpHR/Chrimson (590 nm)

    Simultaneous or Sequential

    1Opsin stimulation is within the excitation or emission range of the fluorophore.
    2ChR2 stimulation at 450nm generates optical fiber autofluorescence signal
    3ArchT stimulation at 560 nm may cause crosstalk in the 500-540 detection band.
