The Eclipse Ts2R inverted research microscope provides a wide range of observation methods and applications in a high precision, compact body that can easily fit in limited laboratory spaces while maintaining good operability.
Control buttons on the Ts2R microscope are intuitively located for a streamlined workflow. A new ergonomic stage design ensures a comfortable hand position during repetitive operation and sample exchange improving workflow; further body refinements improve sample visibility. The Ts2R can also be configured with an optional newly developed, rectangular mechanical stage, which provides a long travel stroke, enabling users to observe an entire well plate from end-to-end.
The optional Contrast Shield accessory blocks room light, providing an easy and cost-effective method for achieving high signal-to-noise fluorescence observation in a brightly lit laboratory.
The high-intensity LED light source enables you to perform a wide variety of observation methods similar to the full-size Eclipse Ti2 inverted research microscope. The Ts2R-FL model, which offers epi-fluorescence observation, provides four fluorescence channels, with 7 different wavelengths to choose from.
Nikon's new contrasting technique is compatible with both plastic and glass culture dishes. Unlike phase contrast or NAMC, Emboss Contrast does not require special objective lenses and therefore has minimal effect on epi-fluorescence observation. Emboss Contrast allows thick samples such as embryos to be easily observed in pseudo-three-dimensional image with great clarity.
Illumination modules, including the epi-fluorescence light source, have been seamlessly incorporated into the microscope main body, resulting in a compact, simple and durable design form. The compact structure is also vibration-resistant to provide highly stable sample observations.
The compact Ts2R microscope is easy to store and operate inside a laminar flow hood.
The Ts2R is compatible with Nikon's acclaimed CFI60 objective lenses which provide high numerical apertures and long working distances to deliver stunningly clear images.
