Olympus FV1000 Specs
Olympus FV1000 SOP
The Olympus FV1000 is a confocal
system designed for high resolution confocal imaging of both fixed and
living cells.The FV1000 is
built around a BX81 inverted microscope and is equipped with a SIM scanner
that enables synchronization of specimen excitation and observation (while one
laser stimulates the second laser simultaneously provides high resolution
imaging). This makes the FV1000 the system of choice for FRAP, FLIP and photoactivation.
Can view up to 3 fluorophores plus transmitted light.
Can be used for short term timelapses (No incubation chamber attached at present. A small
Pecon 37-2 stage heater and CO2 is
The system is used for the following applications:
Transmitted light detection for brightfield or DIC
Photoactivation and photobleaching using the SIM scanner (50mW 405mn diode
laser)- This allows
visualization of very fast protein dynamics(100-200ms recovery time)
Standard multi labelled sample imaging. The system has a Variable bandpass
filter which allows for flexibility when choosing the wavelength of the emission
fluorescence to be captured.
Laser lines available: 405nm,458nm,488nm,515nm,561nm,633nm.
Objectives available:10x/0.4, 20x/0.75 40x/0.9, 60x/1.35 oil, 60x/1.4 oil,
40x.0.8 water, 60x/0.9 water.
