Equipment description
 

The FLUOVIEW FV10i (oil-type) is a fully automated confocal laser-scanning microscope. This microscope enables even inexperienced and first-time users to perform easily and efficient high-quality confocal imaging using high-quality optical components and smart and easy software.

The system is equipped with four (405/473/559/635 nm) lasers. Multi-stained specimens can be imaged with up to four fluorescence dyes.

The detecting mechanism has two fluorescence channels, and one phase contrast channel. It is equipped with two sequential modes, so, images can be acquired 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.

The system has a 10× and 60× objectives. Zoom magnification can be changed continually from 10× to 600×. The most suitable imaging area can be set depending on the size of the specimen.

Use of this confocal system requires in-person training to make sure the system remains available to Users
