Nikon A1 Confocal Laser Microscope System

The Nikon A1 is a basic confocal system consisting of a separate scan head, standard 5 PMT detectors, control module, and laser module. The A1 has a standard high-resolution confocal mode up to 4096 X 4096 pixels. This laser scanning confocal system is similar to that of the Nikon A1R in that it is configured on the Nikon TiE Widefield, inverted, fluorescence microscope. NIS Elements imaging software is used to control acquisition and analysis.

Key features include:

  • 7 laser lines
    • 405nm diode at 38mW
    • 488 nm diode at 20 mW
    • 561nm diode at 40mW
    • 638nm diode at 10mW
  • 5 PMTs (photomultiplier tubes)
  • Autofocus system
  • Nikon TiE Wide field fluorescence microscope
  • Objectives
    • 10X Plan-Fluor/0.3 NA w/ phase
    • 20X Plan-Apo/0.75 NA
    • 40X Plan-Fluor/0.75 NA
    • 40X Plan-Fluor/1.3 NA Oil
    • 60X PApo TIRF/1.49 NA Oil
    • 100X Plan-Apo/1.4 NA Oil

This equipment is located in MSB 4.532.
