Phaseview Smartscan: Ultrafast 3D Imaging

Phaseview Smartscan

Phaseview  SmartScan provides ultra fast Z-stacking capabilities for microscopy applications by remotely scanning image planes.

Z-scanning is achieved without moving sample stage or objective thus allowing vibration free and fast acquisition time only limited by camera performance.

As aberration free and diffraction limited optical devices, SmartScan optical Z-scanner provides precise and repeatable Z-steps.

SmartScan fits in between microscope turret and objective. SmartScan is compatible with all kind of microscopes: upright / inverted, BF, FL, SPIM, 2Photons, etc. and require no microscope modification or additional accessories. All types of objectives magnification / NA can be used,including high numerical aperture diiping lenses.

Z-Stacking at camera frame rate

  • 3D acquisition speed only limited by camera performance,  i.e volume acquisition @ 75 image planes / second, full resolution 2048 x 2048 with sCMOS camera, CameraLink interface, trigger mode

Vibration free 3D acquisition

  • Samples in a fixed / steady position during acquisition
  • No objective or stage move thanks to remote focusing principle

3D Add-on compatible with all microscopy techniques 

  • Brightfield, fluorescence, selective plane illumination microscopy, 2 photon microscopy, upright or inverted microscope stands

Precise and repeatable

  • Highly stable scanning for 3D and time lapse acquisition

Sucessfully used for applications such as: Live Imaging of cellular dynamics, 3D neuronal activity – High-speed volumetric imaging of weak fluorescent specimens – Electrophysiology, calcium imaging – Fast 3D recording of dynamic events or moving specimens – 3D Deconvolution – Extended depth of focus – 3D Quantitative imaging
