Nikon Ti-diSPIM Combines Light-Sheet with Inverted Research Microscope to Enable Cell-Friendly Imaging

Nikon Ti-diSPIM Combines Light-Sheet with Inverted Research Microscope to Enable Cell-Friendly Imaging

Nikon Instruments Inc. is pleased to introduce the new Ti-diSPIM, an evolution in light-sheet imaging. The Ti-diSPIM combines selective plane illumination (aka light-sheet) with Nikon's inverted research microscope to enable cell-friendly, high-speed 4D imaging while maintaining all of the applications available on the Nikon Ti.

Fantastic Microscope Video of Modern Cell Biology

Fantastic Microscope Video of Modern Cell Biology

A very tiny red carpet is ready. The paparazzi are gathering as a daring experiment in communicating cell biology comes to the test—who will watch the three “Tell Your Own Cell Story” videos commissioned by Celldance Studios, a.k.a. the ASCB’s Public Information Committee (PIC)? Dubbed “microscopic blockbusters,” the three short videos will premiere online from the 2014 ASCB/IFCB meeting in Philadelphia on Monday, December 8. [More]
