Nikon Imaging Center

Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology

Located at Biopolis, The Nikon Imaging Center at Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (NIC@IMCB) is a core facility with the state of art light microscopes and Imaging systems developed and operated as a partnership between IMCB and Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd.

The missions of NIC@IMCB are to:

  • Support research while giving the researchers access to cutting-edge imaging technology and resources.
  • Provide training courses on basic and advanced light microscopy techniques for the benefit of Biopolis and regional research community.
  • Serve as a learning platform for our regional corporate partners and contributors.
  • Develop new microscope setups and imaging techniques in response to feedback from the users of NIC@IMCB.
  • Encourage cross-discipline collaborations by operating such light microscope imaging facility in the center of Singapore biocluster.

Systems Available

A1R HD25 Confocal with ECLIPSE Ti2-E Inverted Microscope

Capturing images of large samples such as tissues, organs and whole organisms requires extending both the detectable area as well as increasing image capture speed. Nikon’s A1R HD25 confocal microscope has the largest field of view (25 mm) on the market, enabling users to explore beyond the traditional boundaries of confocal imaging.

N-STORM Super-Resolution with ECLIPSE Ti-E Inverted Microscope

N-STORM is Nikon's STochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM) super-resolution microscope system which exceeds traditional diffraction limits by an order of magnitude and is capable of 3D image acquisition.

ECLIPSE Ni-E/DS-Ri2 Brightfield Imaging System

Nikon's ECLIPSE Ni-E is an upright microscope system offering superior optical performance, multi-mode expandability, and advanced motorization capabilities.

SMZ18 Stereomicroscope with DS-Fi3-L4 Digital Camera System

The SMZ18's breakthrough stereo microscope optics delivers a zoom ratio of 18:1, unprecedented resolution and bright, fluorescent images. Capture stunning images and time-lapse data with incredible detail and field of view.

ECLIPSE Ti-E/DS-Qi2 Fluorescence Imaging Station

The ECLIPSE Ti-E is a fully-integrated microscope system ideal for high-end research and live cell imaging. Configured for fluorescence imaging, the system offers high-speeds, maximum flexibility, and superior optical performance.

ECLIPSE Ts2-FL Inverted Microscope with DS-Fi3-L4 Digital Camera System

Utilizing Nikon's industry-leading CFI60 optical system and LED illumination for both Diascopic and Epi-fluorescence imaging, the ECLIPSE Ts2 inverted microscope offers brilliantly clear images, enabling more efficient cell culture observation and documentation. Furthermore, a newly developed contrast observation method and improved operability enhances its use for routine laboratory work.
