Quartet is an ultra-light flexible fiber bundle for central or peripheral microscopic imaging in vivo.

The Quartet system enables simultaneous calcium imaging of multiple brain regions in freely behaving animals facilitating greater functional insights.

  • Image up to four brain or spinal cord fields of view (FOV) simultaneously within an imaging session
  • Record longitudinally over time, from hard-to-reach regions at an angle
  • Explore unique neurobehavioral hypotheses in neonates and/or other non-rodent species in combination with other modalities (e.g. EEG, fMRI)

Special Multi-Region Miniscope Applications

Advanced integrated imaging applications for your neuroscience research

Social Interaction
Social Interactions

Multi-region miniscope imaging permits simultaneous recording from animal pairs in social interaction studies with minimal interference.

High Throughput
High Throughput

Multi-region miniscope imaging facilitates high throughput screening of up to four animals at a time for preclinical studies with free behavior.

Water Experiments
Water Experiments

The multi-region miniscope design places the electronics away from the animal’s head facilitating various water behavioral assays.

Lightweight
Lightweight

The four lightweight and flexible optical fiber bundles weigh less than 1.5g in total, which minimizes interference with natural animal behaviors.

Multi-Region Data Processing

Quartet multi-region data acquisition

Streamline your multi-region miniscope Ca2+ imaging data analysis with specialized software

  • Control multi-region data collection and synchronization; identify active neurons and manually extract ROIs from each miniscope FOV
  • Each frame is automatically time-stamped and saved in a format chosen by the user
  • Export images and traces in .png and .csv format for further graphic and secondary analysis
  • Compatible with Inscopix Data Processing Software (IDPS) for ROI identification and Ca2+ signal extraction
