  • Brief description:
    Nikon inverted TiE micorsopce coupled to a spinning Yokogawa CSU-X1 unit dedicated to 3D confocal imaging of live samples. All the peripheriques are controled by the Inscoper electronic box, that increases the acquisition speed (triggering).

    Controlled by the Inscoper software
