Confocal Microscopy

We have a Nikon A1R MP Confocal Microscope. It's equipped with four different lasers with excitation wavelengths of 405, 488, 561 and 640 nm. A set of filters is also available to work with non-coherent excitation from a white lamp. The x-y scanning stage works in two modes: resonant and galvano. The former allows for fast scanning (15 frames per second in a 512x512 pixels area and faster for smaller areas) and the latter allows for high resolution images (up to 4096x4096 pixels). The device is ready for the Total Internal Reflection technique.
