Olympus FV1000 upright

The Olympus FV1000 upright is a highly motorised confocal laser scanning microscope for multidimensional acquisition (xyzt in multiple channels) of fixed samples. Confocal microscopy enables the acquisition of high-contrast optical sections, a series of which can be acquired as a z-stack to allow for 3D visualisation of the data. The confocal pinhole prevents out-of-focus light from reaching the detector. The spectral scanner with this system enables high-precision, high-resolution, and high speed spectroscopy (and the acquisition of lambda stacks).
