Olympus Fluoview FV1000 Scanning Confocal System
The Olympus FluoView™ FV1000 confocal microscope opens new frontiers in live cell imaging with advanced technologies that provide improved sensitivity and high scan speeds for imaging live organisms with minimal specimen damage.
The innovative, Olympus-developed SIM Scanner incorporates two independent, fully synchronized laser scanners in a single compact design for simultaneous laser stimulation and confocal observation. Rapid cellular reactions that occur during or immediately following laser stimulation may now be captured without a time lag. Such studies of rapid cellular responses can provide important insight into how various cellular mechanisms operate. This makes the FV1000 ideal for such advanced techniques as FRAP, FLIP, uncaging, photoactivation and photoconversion.
