"The A1R paired with NIS-Elements C seamlessly integrates confocal acquisition and imaging with the management of all automated microscope functions, offering an ideal platform for a variety of high-level techniques for principal investigator labs and core imaging facilities alike," said Stan Schwartz, vice president, Nikon Instruments, Inc. "We've incorporated faster scanning speeds, unique photoactivation and simultaneous image detection, all with improved sensitivity and reduced photo-toxicity effects, to achieve a high-performance, live-cell confocal imaging system with a full range of application modalities and user defined work flow."
In conjunction with the specific confocal functionality, the NIS-Elements platform has been designed to cover visualization, image analysis, processing and data management. These new features bridge specific confocal applications with the functionality required for data generation and output allowing exceptional work flow and ease of use. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides for easy instrument set up, experiment work flow and secure data acquisition, storage and analysis.
NIS-Elements C makes observing live changes and graphing intensity during photobleaching and photoactivation easy with a well-developed and purposeful monitoring interface. Also, maximum and minimum intensity projections over time and Z-axis are available instantly. NIS-Elements C allows diverse image acquisition and analysis methods with techniques such as Colocalization, 2D Object Tracking and Kymograph displays.
NIS-Elements' core functionalities include control of motorized and encoded stages for large image mosaic data sets and includes control of rapid Piezo stage Z-axis focus for acquiring multiple Z-axis image stacks. Together, these features enable very larg
