High-Definition Imaging of Mouse Neuromuscular Junction Using a Resonant Scanner

November 2021

Since a resonant scanner can perform confocal imaging with higher temporal resolution than a galvano scanner, it is used in many cases to acquire life phenomena occurring at high speeds. In contrast, because the resonant scanner of the new generation AX R confocal microscope system supports up to 2K x 2K acquisition, it can be used for a wide range of purposes, from high-speed imaging to high-resolution imaging. This application note introduces examples of the structure of a neuromuscular junction in a mouse captured by high-definition 3D imaging using a resonant scanner.
