Flypi - An open source, modular, affordable tool for imaging experiments.

All Contributors Github size Github license

Hi! Thanks for dropping by. This project started during one of the summer courses organized by Trend in Africa. It developed to the current state due to the efforts of many people along the way. In special Tom Baden, Lucia Prieto, and Edwin Cruz. A paper describing the system was published in Plos Biology.

Version 1.0 was released with the paper and can be found here.

The system can be used for optical microscopy, fluorescence, behavioural tracking, optogenetics, calcium imaging and thermogenetics (see examples recorded with the system below).

Some samples imaged with the device:

We've created a Forum for users to posts questions and suggestions too! Please take a look here
