Nikon AXR confocal microscope
Our LMC has just added the Nikon AXR confocal microscope to our equipment roster. It combined high-speed Resonant scanners and high-resolution Galvano scanners up to 8k resolution. The wide field of view (25 mm) can accommodate larger samples and save image time. In conjunction with Nikon AXR confocal, we have also upgraded our data analysis capabilities. The newest NIS-Element software now includes powerful deconvolution features and AI integration. The General Analysis 3 (GA3) package offers an analysis pipeline with AI capabilities, providing a comprehensive solution for image analysis. Please contact us for inquires and bookings.
