Nikon A1R-MP Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

Mc 6

The two-photon imaging mode of the Nikon A1R-MP system provides deeper imaging into thick samples with no background resulting from out-of-focus light and minimal phototoxicity in live samples. Use this system for imaging thick samples and long-term live cell imaging.
