ThunderScan

ThunderScan

  • Hardware:
    ThunderScan provides the highest scanning speed for volume imaging  in widefield fluorescence microscopy or light sheet microscopy. Instead of mechanical move for the specimen, the devices relies on digital lens technology with remote focusing capabilities. When combined with modern high speed sCMOS cameras, ThunderScan delivers flexible volume imaging with adjustable scanning range and speed.

    Software:
    ThunderScan is supplied with GUI software QTImage. An optional API/ SDK as well as a MicroManager plugin is provided for  microscopy automated systems with comprehensive acquisition tools.

    Scanning Range & Speed performance

    Z range and Z steps are objective dependant, see typical performance for standard objective magnification.
    For any other magnification, the following formula can be applied:
    Scanning Range = 60mm / (G_Obj)2
    G_Obg = Objective magnification
    Scanning speed up to 100 images / second

    Objective
    Mag : NA
    Scanning Range (μm)
    5X 920  0.46
    10X 230  0.12
