Adjusting the illumination

If you are using the port camera on the microscope to acquire intrinsic and/or epi-fluorescence imagery, it is helpful to have a tool to adjust the illumination to be even across the sample such that no regions are saturated. A new illumination checkbox is now available in the camera panel: When the camera is on,…

Simultaneous imaging with port and behavior cameras

If you have one of the new systems (aka as the pizza box) you can now acquire imagery simultaneously from the port camera and the behavior cameras. During 2p imaging the behavior cameras are triggered at the beginning of a frame (TTL OUT 1x f.r.) or at the beginning and middle of a frame (TTL…

Intrinsic & epi-fluorescence imaging using the port camera

Some colleagues have asked about the possibility of integrating imaging acquisition from the port camera to do intrinsic and/or epi-fluorescence imaging ahead of targeting a region of interest with two-photon experiments in Scanbox. We have now added this option to Scanbox. To use this ¬†option you will need to wire the I2C port on the…
