Nikon Eclipse Ti2E Microscope

The Micro Imaging Facility's Nikon Eclipse Ti2E is a widefield fluorescent microscope ideally suited for live cell and explant imaging. Its super-fast sCMOS camera with a really large field of view, together with its different features, allows the observation of sub-millisecond events never seen before. Media perfusion and change can also be performed on this system with the high-performance microfluidics pressure and flow controller.

Nikon Eclipse Ti2E System Specifications

  • Sub-millisecond fluorescence acquisition with ultra-fast sCMOS camera2
  • CooLED fluorescent light source with microsecond switching speed for Ca2+ and visible light imaging
  • Real-time focus correction
  • Large field of view
  • Fully-equipped for live imaging, temperature and CO2 controlled
  • Elveflow multi-channel controller for high performance microfluidics pressure and flow control
  • Software: NIS Elements Advance Research
