How to get started at the AOMF

O-MUG

Comprehensive Course on Fluorescence Microscopy


Nikon A1R Resonance Scanning Confocal

The Nikon A1R+ has two imaging modes. The resonance scanning mode uses an ultra-fast scanner that can image up to 420fps (with a 512x32 pixel size) and 30 fps (with 512 x 512 pixel size) making it ideal for imaging live cells and their dynamic processes. The galvano scanning mode allows for high resolution imaging of fixed and live cells and tissues.

This microscope also has a perfect focus system that allows focus to be maintained while doing long term live cell experiments.
