Features of FluoView™ FV10i
Four wavelength diode lasers The system is equipped with four lasers, which means multi-stained specimens can be imaged with up to four fluorescence dyes. Maintenance-free and power-saving diode lasers with longer operating lives are employed in all the laser units, and operate with low noise levels.
Detection system The detecting mechanism has two fluorescence channels, and one phase contrast channel. The fluorescent channels use a newly developed spectrum method comprising grating, beam splitter, and slit. In addition, they are equipped with the variable bandpass filter function where the most suitable wavelength width is set automatically in accordance with the characteristics of the fluorescence dye.
Two sequential modes You can acquire images through line sequences without crosstalk in imaging with two fluorescence dyes, and with three or four dyes in frame sequences with the virtual channel function.
Objectives of 10X and 60X Zoom magnification can be changed continually from 10x to 600x. The most suitable imaging area can be set depending on size of the specimen.
Specimen holders The system is equipped with specimen holders, usable for a 35mm glass bottom dishes, glass slides, and cover glass chambers (8-well type). You can observe the specimen worry-free with the closed contamination-free plastic cover of a 35mm glass bottom dish.
Capturing adjacent images Imaging of adjacent images 2x2 and 3x3 is possible. You can capture images of high-definition and wide-field of view.
Storing large volumes of data The microscope comes equipped with a HDD (hard-disk drive) recording function. The images captured are stored automatically. Large volumes of data, such as those obtained from long-term time-lapse imaging can be saved. During imaging, editing and analysis of previously taken images is possible. You can also specify an external HDD connected to a network, and you can view the saved images on a remote PC while performing separate imaging.
