New research equipment

Nikon A1R-HD Confocal Microscope (Eclipse Ti2)

The Nikon A1R-HD is a fully-automated confocal imaging system able to image in the X, Y, and Z planes with both a high-speed resonant scanner to capture the dynamics of a system and a Galvano scanner to maximize resolution in fixed samples.

Features include:

  • A large field of view, capable of a resolution below 200 nm
  • A sophisticated post-processing software to deconvolve and attractively display results
  • A 2D and 3D tracking system for particle tracking that can be set up to automatically track several regions of interest in a time series scan
  • View all specs and features

For training, please contact Katie Shannon at shannonk@mst.edu or 573-341-6336. Once you have completed training you can schedule a time to use the microscope.
