ThunderscanLife Sciences & Scientific Imaging
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.
ThunderScan is supplied with GUI software . An optional as well as a MicroManager plugin is provided for microscopy automated systems with comprehensive acquisition tools.

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
Mag : NA
|Scanning Range (μm)|
ThunderScan is supplied with the Graphics User Interface “Qtimage”, touch screen compatible, Windows 8, 7, Vista , XP (32/64 bits)
