Here is a Nikon Electrophysiology Rig Patch Clamp Ti-S Fluorescence and DIC Microscope w/ Sutter Micromanipulator, HEKA EPC 10 Patch Clamp, Faraday Cage
Setup for Patch Clamp Electrophysiology, Brightfield with DIC, and Fluorescence studies with Brand New Fluorescence Filters
- This setup includes a Sutter MP-285 micromanipulation system with HEKA 10 headstage
- The headstage allows for recording using Heka Patch Master software
- A Faraday cage and TMC Antivibration table are included for improved sample recording
- This microscope is optimized for observation of biological studies where enhanced contrasting methods are necessary.
- Enhancing components, such as Fluorescence Filter Cubes have been added (Other components are available)
- The total current magnification range of this microscope is 40 to 200x (Other objectives are available)
- The fluorescence light source included is Metal Halide light source
- The XY mechanical stage has a travel range of 70 x 50mm. It will allow for observation of prepared slides and petri dishes.
- The included TMC Anti-Vibration features TMCs Gimbal Piston Air Isolators, allowing quick dissipation of disturbances of the isolated table top and clear imaging without interference from local vibration around the lab.
This Nikon Electrophysiology Rig Patch Clamp Ti-S Fluorescence and DIC Microscope is in good working order with all of its aspects tested and fully functional
