Nikon, Agilent to Make Laser-based Biomed Imagers

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
MELVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 19, 2011 — Advanced optical instruments provider Nikon Instruments Inc. and Agilent Technologies, a measurement company, announced an agreement for distribution in the Americas of Agilent’s MLC400 monolithic laser combiner systems, which will be integrated into laser systems designed for Nikon’s Ti-E PFS “Perfect Focus’ inverted research microscope.

The integration of the systems will allow researchers to maximize productivity and minimize system down time. Incorporated into the Ti-E PFS system—capable of multi-day live-cell imaging experiments—and under the control of NIS-Elements Advanced Research, the integration can be run at camera frame rate or faster.

“The combination of Nikon’s superior imaging optics with Agilent’s expertise in precision optics and laser systems makes this a natural synergy,” said Stephen Ross, general manager of product and marketing for Nikon. “We believe this agreement will provide our customers with both the imaging and laser capabilities they require for high-end research and experimentation.”

The two companies will initially begin integration of the systems for total internal reflection fluorescence, photobleaching/photoactivation and field scanning confocal systems.

An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
A process that helps optical fibers recover from damage induced by radiation. When silica is irradiated, bonds break and attenuation increases. Light in the fiber assists in recombining the species released by the broken bonds, decreasing attenuation.
