NINscope is a super light-weight (~1.6 gm) open-source miniscope with a small footprint that incorporates an imaging sensor, capability to monitor 3D-acceleration and permits remote optogenetic stimulation. The Ninscope's compact design allows it to be utilized in experiments that require recording from two regions concurrently in freely behaving mice e.g.cerebellum and cerebral cortex.
- Optogenetic stimulation
- Accelerometer read-out
- Superficial and deep brain imaging
- Able to record from two locations in bi-hemispheric (6-7 mm inter-baseplate distance, 45-50 degree angle) or rostral-caudal (8 mm inter-baseplate distance,15-20 degree angle) configurations
- Fully-soldered imaging sub-assembly consisting of: interface board, image board and LED
- Python 480 ONSEMI CMOS sensor
- 30 Hz framerate
- LSM6DSL Inertial Measurment Unit (IMU) at 104 Hz
- Data acquisition software compatible with Linux, MacOS and Windows
Orders will ship end of March 2020.
