Like the rest of the Ti Series, the Ti-E utilizes Nikon's NIS-Elements software, which allows operations from advanced image acquisition to analysis and measurement by integrating control of microscope, camera and peripherals. Furthermore, when combined with the newly-introduced Nikon motorized stages and motorized filter wheels, NIS-Elements software on the Ti-E also enables exceptionally well integrated and fast acquisition of multipoint, multi-color time-lapse imaging and Z-axis data capture.
Additional new features include a "full intensity" external phase contrast system, which is incorporated into the microscope body, rather than in the objective lens, thereby producing very little light loss. Through the efficiency of the light usage, it allows for observation and capture of phase contrast images with high numerical aperture specialty objectives, such as the APO TIRF NA 1.49 series, without limiting fluorescence throughput.
Utilizing its unique modular two-story optical design stratum
structure, various illumination and contrast methods are available and add
to the Ti's flexibility and interchangeability for both routine and unique
research applications. For instance, the Ti offers five different kinds of
fluorescence illuminators, supporting cutting-edge research using new FRET
ratio, TIRF imaging or photo activation technologies. Additionally,
multiple camera ports, which can be outfitted with the Digital Sight series
high- performance CCD cameras or other manufacturers' quantitative camera
systems, facilitate the full rang
