Innovative Hardware and Software Enable Total System Integration with the Nikon Ti Inverted Microscope System to Provide Advanced System Flexibility
MELVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Nikon Instruments, Inc. (http://www.nikoninstruments.com) today launched the A1 series of confocal laser point scanning systems, which seamlessly integrates with the new Ti-E research inverted microscope. The fully-automated confocal imaging system literally brings biological imaging to life, capturing high-quality confocal images of cells and molecular events at high speed and enhanced sensitivity. Ideal for facilities with a broad range of users, the A1 has been designed with ground breaking new optical and electronic technology innovations to provide unprecedented system flexibility.
Two models are available: the A1 and the A1R. The fully-automated A1 offers standard paired galvanometers with high resolution scanning at up to 4096 X 4096 pixels, with a standard speed of two frames per second (fps) for 512 x 512 pixels. The A1R model incorporates a unique hybrid scanner system of paired galvanometers coupled to a high speed resonant galvanometer. This supports advanced research methods using photo-activation fluorescence proteins and facilitates high-speed, live-cell work with a huge array of new imaging strategies. The total system offers new, ergonomic, user-friendly design and work flow utilizing Nikon's industry-leading NIS-Elements applications software, which has been enhanced for complete confocal image acquisition and analysis, providing unprecedented system flexibility.
A true advancement in confocal imaging, the A1 series offers many new
and exclusive features for confocal image and data acquisition, including
Nikon's exclusive DISP (Dual Integration Signal Processing) and a
high-speed fiber- optic communication data transfer system. DIS
