Short Description

The Nikon CSU W1-02 spinning disk microscope is an large Field Of View (17 x 16 mm) Spinning Disk microscope. The dual disk configuration provides flexibility in optimized image acquisition of samples varying sample size, for which the piezo stage provides fast and precise imaging of 3D stacks. The automated water immersion system allows prolonged and combined live imaging experiments. In the relatively near future, this system will be equipped with a micro-manipulator for a (1-sided) pipette aspiration setup.
