Scientifica HyperScope

Push the boundaries of light microscopy and find the answers to the most intricate biological questions with the HyperScope, a proven multiphoton microscope.

Image using two- and three-photon fluorescence excitation with exceptional performance. The HyperScope multiphoton imaging system is a trusted solution that can be customised and upgraded to suit your changing needs. The option of a dual scan head allowing for simultaneous imaging and photostimulation enables you to probe the functional roles of neural cells and circuits.



Acquire high contrast images of the most intricate samples

The high resolution of the HyperScope reduces background noise, generating accurate data that you can draw reliable conclusions from.

Visualise rapid changes

Use 8kHz fast resonant scanning to capture rapid changes in fluorescent signals. The fast frame rate will enable you to image with the latest high-speed indicators to visualise rapid changes, such as network interactions, and acquire novel data.

Image deep into tissue

Obtain outstanding images of the finest structures deep within your sample. Thanks to multiphoton optical sectioning, stunning three-dimensional reconstructions can be easily produced.

Simultaneous imaging and photostimulation

Full flexibility for integrating wavelengths for both imaging and stimulation. The dual scan head with two light paths enables simultaneous multiphoton imaging and photostimulation with exceptional performance, so you can elucidate the functions of brain cells and circuits.

Proven three-proton capability

Perform much deeper, clearer imaging in vivo and gather more useable data from your samples with the HyperScope. Perform efficient longer wavelength imaging to gather cleaner data at depth, with no further modifications required.

Easily upgradeable

This flexible system allows you to upgrade and add functionalities as your experiments progress, your funding develops, and your lab grows. Full training and support are provided when you upgrade, so you can get the most out of your equipment.

Simple integration with other techniques

The pioneering slim design means this compact multiphoton system can be easily integrated with other techniques, such as electrophysiology.

All-in-one solution for in vivo and in vitro experiments

All of your experiments can be performed on one system, saving you time and money, and enabling you to acquire data faster and publish sooner.

​Tailor your HyperScope to suit your needs and budget

Available with a variety of options for scan head, frame and detector, the HyperScope can be tailored to suit your needs. Existing components in your lab can also be used to build a HyperScope multiphoton imaging system within your budget. This ensures your research is not limited by your funding.

With easily removable covers, the light paths are accessible for customisation. When in the single scanhead configuration, the second mounting position offers a standardised optomechanical interface where visual stimulus and other custom scan paths can be added.

The ability of the HyperScope to combine imaging with other techniques, such as electrophysiology, means your experiments have no limit.

An all-in-one solution for imaging and stimulation

Push the boundaries of light microscopy with the HyperScope, the ideal solution for using the following techniques to investigate biology:

  • In vivo and in vitro two-photon imaging
  • Three-photon imaging
  • Second and third harmonic generation
  • Two-photon photostimulation
  • Fluorescence lifetime imaging
  • All-optical interrogation of neurons with the HoloStim-3D.

A trusted solution for in vivo and in vitro two-photon imaging

Obtain images from both in vivo and in vitro samples with high spatial resolution to answer novel biological questions. The flexibility of the HyperScope enables it to be easily adapted to suit your experimental requirements, ensuring the raw data is high quality, so less processing and analysis is required.

With the option of a tiltable objective, you can retain optimal alignment during in vivo experiments, without having to tilt the animal. Easily switch between a tiltable objective and regular objective mount, for optimal and cost-effective experimental flexibility.

Two-photon recording from a three week old zebrafish brain explant of the line Tg(elavl3:GCaMP6s-nuclear). Four consecutive planes (upper to lower ones from left to right) of a volumetric recording (8 planes in total) are shown where first Dm (amygdala homolog in zebrafish) then Dl (Hippocampus homolog in zebrafish) were electrically stimulated by a glass-electrode (indicated in the upper left corner). Data acquired by Anna Ostenrath and Ewelina Bartoszek, PhD Students in the lab of Professor Emre Yaksi, Kavli Institute, NTNU.
