The Nikon A1R and Partnership Agreement

The Image Resource Facility (IRF) is proud to announce a new partnership with Nikon alongside the acquisition of a new Nikon A1R confocal microscope as part of the expansion of our Light Microscopy Suite. This agreement will bring collaborative educational events to St George’s, as a complement to the microscopy training provided by the IRF.

The Nikon A1R inverted confocal microscope enables high resolution (up to 4096x4096 pixels), high speed (up to 420fps depending on scan area), and high sensitivity imaging. The system houses 405/488/561/633nm solid-state lasers and 10/20/40/60x high-numerical aperture objectives. Live imaging was a key element of the system specification, and this is achieved with the Okolab incubation chamber and gas mix system for fine control of CO2 and temperature. The full system specification and other microscope systems available can be viewed in the Nikon A1R page of our website.

Alongside this new microscope acquisition, the IRF has undergone extensive refurbishment of the Light Microscopy Suite and main corridor, and relaunched both its booking system and facility website.
