Neural cells, both neurons and glia, exhibit calcium and other ion fluctuations which can be measured with fluorescent indicators. While much calcium imaging can be done at 10Hz or less, the proliferation of genetically encoded calcium indicators has revolutionized the cell specific targeting, speed and brightness of calcium imaging allowing for measurements of neural network activity in powerful new paradigms. Whether your work uses Fura, Fluo4 or GCaMP6, Olympus has imaging solutions for the most demanding measurements and speeds. With so many applications let us partner with you to find the right solution.
