Nikon A1-R Confocal Laser Microscope System

The Nikon A1R is a modular confocal system consisting of a separate scan head, standard 4 PMT detector module plus an additional PMT for pseudo-DIC imaging, control module, laser module, and spectral detector module. The A1R has a standard high-resolution confocal mode (up to 4096 x 4096 pixels) as well as a high speed resonant mode capable of scanning 230 frames per sec at 512 x 64 pixels. In addition to laser-based, confocal image acquisition, this Nikon platform also utilizes a high-end digital camera for non-confocal image acquisition.

Key features include:

  • Scanning
