Ti:Sapph laser - The A1R-MP+ multiphoton microscope system is equipped with a Coherent Chameleon Vision II laser tunable from 690nm to 1050nm.
Resonant scanning - The A1R+ confocal has a hybrid scan-head that incorporates both a resonant and a galvonometer scanner. The resonant scanner is capable of high speed image capture at rates ranging from 30 frames per second (512 x 512 pixels) to 420 frames per second (512 x 32 pixels), while the galvonometer scanner can be used for high resolution imaging. They can be combined for simultaneous imaging and photobleaching or stimulation experiments.
GaAsP NDD detectors - The A1R+ is equipped with two high-sensitivty GaAsP detectors in the non-descanned path for high-sensitivity multi-photon imaging.
