Olympus FV1000 upright confocal microscope (click to enlarge)
The FV1000 platforms can be interactively controlled through the FluoView software, with internal stepper motor Z resolution of 0.01 μm and motorized XY stage. XY scanning is performed with a pair of galvanometric mirrors, yielding a wide scanning range to a field number of 18. Optical zoom (up to 50 x) is available, with a maximum image size of up to 4096 x 4096 pixels. The spectral scanner with this system delivers outstanding performance without deviation in wavelength, enabling high-precision, high-resolution, and high-speed spectroscopy (and acquisition of lambda stacks).
