Microscope overview

The Nikon Eclipse Ti is a fully motorized inverted widefield fluorescence microscope ideal for live-cell imaging applications. It is equipped with a small stage incubator for temperature control and CO2 supply and with Perfect Focus System for hardware focus control during long time-lapse acquisitions. Using either Metamorph or Nikon Elements software you can control the motorized filters, shutters and stage to simultaneously set up multi-color time-lapse imaging experiments in multiple stage positions. It is equipped with a Retiga R6 monochrome CCD camera that allows for a large field of view, ideal for time-lapse and tile-and-stitch microscopy. You can perform Z-stack acquisition and use PPBI Huygens RM deconvolution server to significantly improve image resolution even in thick samples. If don't want to use deconvolution, check out one of the confocal systems such as the point scanners Zeiss LSM 710 and Zeiss LSM 880 or spinning disks 3i Marianas SDC and Zeiss Cell Observer SD. If your personal computer cannot handle all the data you collected, check out the Big Guy or Colossus.
