A1 / A1R Confocal Laser Microscope System
The A1 is Nikon's powerful fully-automated confocal imaging system, capable of capturing high-quality confocal images of cells and molecular events at high speed and enhanced sensitivity. Ideal for facilities with a broad range of users, the A1 has been designed with groundbreaking new optical and electronic technology innovations to provide unprecedented system quality and flexibility.
A1MP Multiphoton Confocal Microscope
Nikon's A1 MP is a unique multiphoton imaging system featuring a high resolution galvanometer scanner. New 4 channel non-descanned detectors with higher sensitivity, reduced dark current and broad spectral range allow for real time unmixing of closely spaced probes for accurate and high-contrast spectral imaging. This is especially important in multiphoton microscopy because of the overlap of emission spectra of probes and autofluorescence, which is often unavoidable when using a single laser line.
Biostation CT Cell Culture Observation
The Nikon BioStation CT allows imaging experiments to be conducted without ever removing the cells from the incubator. Consisting of a standard sized tissue culture incubator with an inverted microscope inside, BioStation CT holds 30 vessels ranging from 96 well plates to 75cm2 flasks, which are moved between the microscope stage and the vessel rack via a robotic device while maintaining precise levels of CO2, humidity, and temperature. BioStation CT provides images from 2x to 40x phase images with apodized phase contrast (APC) optics and fluorescence images with three color LED illumination. A bird's eye color macro view allows the entire vessel to be viewed from above. Complete security is provided: users access only the samples for which they have clearance. Experimental results are reliably traced and can be accessed remotely via an internet connection or LAN.
Biostation IM-Q Time Lapse Imaging System
The Nikon BioStation IM-Q is a compact cell incubator and monitoring system that allows users with minimal microscopy experience to conduct live cell imaging without a steep learning curve. The BioStation IM-Q facilitates a broad array of short-term and long-term time-lapse experiments, including studies of cell growth, morphology, and protein expression, by providing consistent environmental control of temperature, humidity and gas concentration in combination with phase and fluorescence imaging of exceptional quality. Additionally, researchers can select from two types of microscope cameras. Perfusion capabilities further expand experimental possibilities.
C2+ Confocal Microscope System
Built on a reputation of incredible stability coupled with superior optical technologies, the C2+ with its host of functions and various analytical capabilities is the perfect tool for a new microscope, or as a new accessory to a Nikon imaging system. Now fully controlled by NIS-Elements imaging software, the system includes four channel confocal fluorescence imaging, and vastly expanded spectral capabilities with the ability to capture and unmix data acquired at any channel resolution across the entire detector bandwidth.
LiveScan Swept Field Confocal
The Nikon LiveScan Swept Field Confocal Microscope (SFC) enables dynamic live cell confocal imaging through an innovative new optical design that combines pinhole and slit scanning modes into one microscope. Slit scanning produces faster acquisition, while pinhole mode produces higher spatial resolution. Now researchers have the imaging power and flexibility to choose the scanning feature that best suits the application at hand.
N-SIM Super Resolution Microscope
Nikon's new N-SIM microscopy system can produce two times the resolution of conventional optical microscopes by combining Structured Illumination Microscopy technology licensed from UCSF and based on the world renowned Eclipse Ti research inverted microscope with Nikon's legendary CFI Apo TIRF 100x oil objective lens (N.A. 1.49), developed using unique optical technologies and manufacturing techniques. N-SIM also delivers the fastest imaging capability in the industry, with a time resolution of 0.6 sec/frame.
N-STORM Super Resolution Microscope
N-STORM is a new super-resolution digital microscope system that combines "Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy" technology (licensed from Harvard University) and Nikon's Eclipse Ti research inverted microscope. N-STORM super-resolution microscope provides dramatically enhanced resolution that is 10 times or better than that of conventional optical microscopes and will be capable of multi-spectral two-dimensional and three-dimensional nanoscopy, with lateral resolution to approximately 20nm and axial resolution to approximately 50nm, extending the role of the optical microscope to near molecular level resolution.
