Nikon C2+ Confocal Microscope System

An essential microscopy laboratory instrument





The C2+ confocal microscope is a basic model within the family of Nikon confocal products. The C2+ is designed as an essential microscopy tool for the laboratory, providing powerful and robust imaging capabilities. The high-efficiency scan heads and detectors, coupled with Nikon's unrivaled optics, provide superior confocal images. The high-speed galvano scanners, operating at rates of up to 100 fps*, enable even the fast-beating motion of cardiac muscles to be captured with precision. The system also provides simultaneous acquisition of three fluorescent channels plus DIC in a single scan. For research that requires spectral imaging capabilities, Nikon's C2si+ system provides dedicated spectral detector units in addition to the standard fluorescence detector units. The C2si+system allows high-precision and high-speed 32-channnel spectral imaging or high-sensitivity spectral imaging. Built on a reputation of incredible stability and operational simplicity, coupled with superior optical technologies, the C2+ confocal system is the essential laboratory tool.


High-speed acquisition of high-definition images : Galvanometer-based high-speed scanning enables confocal imaging of fast, dynamic events in live cells, such as the beating motion of cardiac muscle cells. In traditional confocal systems, fast bi-directional scanning can lead to pixel shifts. However the C2+ confocal system's pixel shift correction mechanism ensures acquisition of the highest quality images even with fast bi-directional scanning.
Image Quality : Nikon's unprecedented optics and a time-provem, highly efficienct optical design provide the brightest and sharpest images, at the longest working distances.
Intuitive Operation : The superior operability and diverse analysis capabilities of the NIS-Elements imaging software satisfy both beginners and experienced confocal users. In addition, NIS-Elements allows for intuitive operation not only of Nikon microscopes but also of third party peripheral devices for a broad range of experiments.
Fast and accurate spectral imaging : Acquisition of a 32-channel spectral image (512 x 512 pixels) with a single scan in 0.6 second is possible. Moreover, 512 x 32-pixel images can be captured at 24 fps.
Flexibiity : The C2+ can be coupled with upright, inverted, physiological, and macro imaging microscopes and has options for combinations with various high-quality research experiment systems. All can be controlled with NIS-Elements software.
