New Microscope Series Positioned at the Center of the Most Advanced
Bio-Science Imaging Protocols
MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Nikon Instruments, Inc. (http://www.nikoninstruments.com) today announced the launch of its latest inverted microscope series, the Eclipse Ti. Available in three models, the new Ti offers improved system speed, increased flexibility and efficient multi-mode microscopy as part of a fully-integrated microscope system that is ideal for high-end research and live cell imaging.
All components of the system are seamlessly combined through Nikon's NIS-Elements software. This allows diverse image acquisition and analysis methods, with techniques such as multidimensional time-lapse imaging, FRET, FRAP, High Content Analysis and photo-activation. The newly-developed digital control HUB significantly increases accessory speed by streamlining communication between components and the PC, boosting total operational speed. Additionally, faster motorized device movement and image acquisition protocols decreases overall light exposure and subsequent photo-toxicity, leading to more meaningful data. As a result, the Ti series is ideal for live cell imaging.
At the core of the Ti System is Nikon's exceptional and highly validated CFI60 series of over 100 objectives lenses devoted to biological imaging. Seven of these objectives were newly developed especially for the Ti inverted microscope. Most notably, the VC Plan Apo 20X NA 0.75 with violet line correction, the new 60x ELWD S Plan Fluor NA 0.70 with a 0.1 to 1.3 mm correction collar, and the new apodized ADM phase contrast 20X and 40X S Plan Fluor ELWD objectives.
"Nikon has been a leader in the inverted microscope market for more
than 30 years," said Stan Schwartz, vice president of Nikon Instruments.
"In creating the Ti line, we drew our design experience and user supplied
