A1R confocal with spectral detector

A1Rpic.jpgResonant scanning - The A1R+ confocal has a hybrid scan-head that incorporates Nikon's new HD resonant scanner in addition to a galvonometer scanner. The resonant scanner is capable of high speed image capture at 15 frames per second at 1024x1024, 30 frames per second at 512 x 512 pixels and 420 frames per second at 512 x 32 pixels.  They can be combined for simultaneous imaging and photobleaching or stimulation experiments.

GaAsP detectors - The A1R+ is equipped with two normal PMTs and two high-sensitivty GaAsP detectors (green and red channels) enabling visualisation of even very weak signals.

PFS - The A1R confocal is mounted on a Nikon Ti Eclipse microscope with Nikon's Perfect Focus System. This focal drift compensation mechanism allows users to maintain the desired focal plane for long-tem live cell imaging.
