Confocal System With TIRFM Module For Extended Imaging Capabilities


Olympus Life and Material Science Europa GmbH, has released a peerless Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy (TIRFM) module for its FluoView FV1000 confocal microscope. The TIRFM module integrates easily with the confocal system. For TIRF image recording the FV1000 microscope platform comes with the Olympus CELL^M/^R imaging system including a high sensitivity CCD camera.

The Olympus FV1000 features including the SIM scanner and UIS2 optics. The addition of an advanced TIRFM module allows researchers to significantly enhance the imaging capacity of their system. As well as standard and confocal laser scanning fluorescence image acquisition, the TIRFM module enables evanescent illumination for CCD-based thin surface layer observation.
