The new Olympus FluoViewTM FV1000 is the latest in point-scanning, point-detection, confocal laser scanning microscopes designed for today's intensive and demanding biological research investigations. Excellent resolution, bright and crisp optics, and high efficiency of excitation, coupled to an intuitive user interface and affordability are key characteristics of this state-of-the-art optical microscopy system.
When configured for visible excitation, the FluoViewTM FV1000 is capable of simultaneous collection from up to 4 detection channels using multiple laser and conventional illumination sources. Wavelength selection and flexible control of laser intensity with advanced AOTF technology permits reduced specimen fading, lower crosstalk, and excitation area selection. Olympus confocal microscopes are ideal for 3-D imaging, time course experiments, energy transfer visualization, and photobleaching recovery experiments. The instruments may be configured on either the IX2 inverted research microscope platform or the BX2 upright research microscope platform.
