A1R HD with Ti-E
CSU-X1 Spinning Disk with Ti-E
The Yokogawa CSU-X1 spinning disk confocal combined with Nikon’s Ti-E inverted research microscope platform provides fast, high-resolution 4D imaging of living cells with minimal effects of photo-damage. The Ti-E microscope is equipped with Perfect Focus (PFS) to enable long time-lapse imaging without focus drift. The system is also equipped with a fast, laser-based raster-scanning device (Miniscanner) for photobleaching and photostimulation.
A1R Multiphoton with Ni-E FN
Nikon's A1R HD multiphoton microscope enables high speed, deep tissue imaging in live organisms with unprecedented sensitivity and clarity. The system features an ultra-high speed resonant scanner capable of 420 fps imaging, a galvanometric scanner for high-resolution imaging, high-sensitivity GaAsP Multi Detector in both episcopic and diascopic imaging paths to optimize signal detection and high N.A. objective lenses designed for high-resolution, deep tissue imaging.
Ti-E PFS Inverted Microscope System
The Eclipse Ti-E with Perfect Focus is Nikon's market leading inverted microscope system offering improved system speed, increased flexibility and efficient multi-mode microscopy as part of a fully-integrated microscope system that is ideal for high-end research and live cell imaging. Perfect Focus is Nikon's exclusive focus correction system that combats axial focus fluctuations in real time during long-term imaging investigations.
