CV1000  Spinning Disk Confocal

The CellVoyager™ CV1000 provides renowned Yokogawa spinning disk confocal imaging technology in an easy to use, incubated bench-top solution for live cell imaging. With its microlens enhanced dual Nipkow disk scanning technology, phototoxicity and photobleaching are drastically reduced, making it ideal for use in observing highly delicate life processes such as iPS/ES cell generation and embryogenesis. From multiple 35mm dishes to multi-well plates, the CV1000 has the throughput to handle some of your most demanding time-lapse research.

Wide-area imaging of tissue sections

Interkinetic nuclear movement in the cerebral cortex of chicken

Interkinetic nuclear movement in the Cerebral cortex of chicken was observed for about 20 hours. Confocality and high-precision motorized stage movement of the CV1000, makes it possible to observe biological reactions in thick specimens.
