Nikon A1R

Mc 6

The Nikon A1R HD, inverted confocal system is equipped with four laser lines, 405, 488, 561 and 633nm and a contrast imaging capability. The 32-channel spectral detector can be used for spectral imaging or linear, live unmixing for reduced background. The resonant scanner provides fast scanning-capabilities at high resolution for rapid image capture and, when combined with the piezo drive, rapid Z-series acquisition for 3D image reconstructions. The denoise AI software application provides increased signal-to-noise during fast acquisistion of images from dim samples. Researchers can perform live cell imaging, photoablation and FRAP and FRET experiments with this microscope.
