Nikon Eclipse Ti2E Microscope

The 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, allow 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.
