Synchronize and Link your Electrochemical or Electrophysiological and Imaging Data
SmartLUX allows to perform simultaneous image acquisition and electrophysiological recordings. The timing of a fluorescence excitation light source, the camera and the electrophysiological command signals are synchronized by the Pulse Generator of PATCHMASTER / POTMASTER.
Fluorescence mean values from regions of interest (ROI), which can be marked by the user in the image, are plotted together with e.g. the current trace in the Oscilloscope window and stored together with the other data in the data tree.
When stepping through the data tree, SmartLUX shows the corresponding image. In case more images have been acquired during a single sweep, the individual images are shown when stepping through the data points of the fluorescence trace using the scan function of the Oscilloscope.
Fluorescence Excitation light sources which can be controlled in the same way as:
- Polychrome and Oligochrome from TILL Photonics
- OptoScan from Cairn Research
- DG-4/DG-5 wavelength switcher from Sutter Instrument Company
- Lambda 10 filter wheels from Sutter Instrument Company
- DeltaRAM monochromator from PTI
