Nikon A1R-MP Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope with Multiphoton Excitation
With both fixed and live samples, the Nikon A1R is capable of generating high-resolution confocal images in up to four separate channels. Z-series of images can be used to generate three-dimensional renderings of samples. The A1R is uniquely capable of FRET (fluorescence resonant energy transfer) analysis.
The multiphoton excitation modality of the Nikon A1R-MP is best suited for long-term live tissue scanning.
This device is equipped with an optional stage-top environmental chamber and an optional objective inverter, which allows a researcher to examine live tissue cultures using a dipping lens.
