In Vivo Imaging and Recording Solutions
Micro Control Instruments Ltd is a leading innovator in deep tissue imaging, stimulation and recording in vivo. Our global team of engineers, scientists and operational specialists apply these innovations to support life scientists in their research – from Application to Publication.
The Pryer Endoscopic Objective: Deep tissue imaging at sub-micron resolution
The MCI Pryer lens is our endoscopic objective. It enables unrivalled sub-cellular resolution at depth and is perfect for deep tissue imaging in vivo. The MCI Pryer is compatible with any fluorescence microscopes, such as current two photon (2P) microscopes from Olympus and Nikon. This state-of-the-art objective allows for deep tissue access and visualization in anesthetized animals, awake animals with head fixation and even chronic recordings with our custom-built adapter.
Achieve multi-channel microscopy at sub-micron resolution with our micro lens-based micro endoscope and smallest epifluorescence scope on the market, the DiveScope.
The newest member of our innovative range of in vivo imaging products, the DiveScope comes as a complete system incorporating: imaging probe scope; micromanipulator for stable and precise scope control; controller box for illumination power setting; and software interface to program, acquire and analyse your imaging project.
The MCI CleverExplore system is a complete electrophysiology and imaging workstation. Find out more about it or use our Bespoke Rig Design service to build a rig that is going to power your research for years to come.
We aim to support the Neuroscientist – from Application to Publication, and have an extensive range of products we can provide

We have been gathering some information and advice on reducing noise in data recordings. Read more on our hunt here
Using non-invasive MRI scans, researchers from the University of Melbourne establish the concept of senders and receivers in the brain. They discovered that some regions are better at sending electrical signals, while others are better at receiving them. This discovery might lead to better understanding of neural communication disruptions.
MCH neurons in the hypothalamus are known to be involved in the shift between NREM and REM sleep cycles. Professor Giuliana Mazzoni presents a new electrophysiology study arguing for these neurons role in memory performance.
