Epifluorescence Microscope: Nicon Eclipse Ti2-E (2020)

The Nicon Eclipse Ti2-E is an inverted epifluorescence microscope which is equipped with a control unit for CO2 and temperature. Together with its reliable Perfect Focus System (PFS4) this makes it perfect for long-term time lapse experiments with mammalian cells. The LED light source Spectra III has eight lines covering a large excitation range. With the present filter sets 4 dyes can be imaged simultaneously (e.g. Dapi, A488, A568, A647).
