卓越中心

Florida Atlantic University

The FAU Nikon Center of Excellence, a partnership with the FAU Brain institute, seeks to provide scientists and trainees across the university’s six campuses with access to high-performance, cellular imaging tools to advance the study of fundamental biological mechanisms and their contributions to human disorders.

Through our Nikon partnership, the FAU community and its community partners gain access to Nikon’s technical expertise and advanced training support on existing imaging platforms as well as opportunities to explore leading-edge Nikon imaging technologies at the earliest possible stages of development. Installations on the Jupiter, FL campus include multiple confocal platforms with enhanced resolution capability, automated X-Y-Z image capture, and TIRF technology, affording high resolution analysis of single molecules in cellular sub-compartments and large field image capture and reconstruction.

A complete list of available systems can be found on the FAU website link below.
