Instruments and Services
The Nikon AZ 100 is a multi-purpose zoom macroscope that has multiple methods for one to observe samples (fixed slides, to small organisms) either in brightfield (top lit or backlit), epi-fluorescence, or Nomarski DIC.
The 90i is ideal for fluorescent and/or bright-field images of whole tissues and small organisms. Three single filters allow for detection of fluorescence in the widely used ranges of DAPI, FITC, and TRITC.
The DeltaVision’s greatest strength is its ability to obtain long-term time-lapse three-dimensional images with a minimum of photodamage on live cells. Then with it’s deconvolution algorithm redirects all out of focus light to become in focus for sharp images.
The Andor Spinning Disk is designed to image thin samples with low emission fluorescence as well as capture cellular events with minimal photo-damage to live cells. TIRF, FRAP and FRET modalities are also capable with this system.
The Nikon C2+ Confocal is on an upright microscope base and operates with the same software that the A1R confocal uses. This allows researchers to image their samples from above, when an inverted scope is not practical for their samples.
With both fixed and live samples, the Nikon A1R is capable of generating high-resolution confocal images in up to four separate channels. Z-series of images can be used to generate three-dimensional renderings of samples. It is also capable of preforming FRET (fluorescence resonant energy transfer) analysis.
Nikon A1R-MP Multi-Photon Excitation Modality
The multi-photon excitation modality of the Nikon A1R-MP is best suited for long-term live tissue scanning in deep tissue.
