Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope
The new Olympus FluoView™ FV1000 is the latest in point-scanning, point-detection, confocal laser scanning microscopes designed for today's intensive and demanding biological research investigations. Excellent resolution, bright and crisp optics, and high efficiency of excitation, coupled to an intuitive user interface and affordability are key characteristics of this state-of-the-art optical microscopy system. Our system has four simultaneous detection channels, including one for DIC and two spectral channels. Source.
