Nikon AX R confocal microscope
Confocal microscopes use a pinhole to reject out-of-focus light, resulting in optical sectioning and an improved signal-to-noise ratio when compared with wide-field fluorescence imaging. Confocal microscopes are ideal for imaging multi-labelled fluorescent samples up to around 100 microns in depth.
For increased scanning speeds the Nikon AX R confocal has a Resonant scanner achieving speeds around 20 times faster than our standard Galvano scanning confocals.
The water pump allows multi-area, timelapse and high-content plate screening with the high NA water objectives by maintaining the meniscus across the entire plate and/or preventing evaporation issues.
