Nikon’s polarising microscopes and high zoom SMZ stereomicroscope range are ideal for both synovial and cyst fluid analysis, as well as examination of the microstructure of bone and biomaterials. Advanced imaging techniques enable research into the molecular biology of the musculoskeletal system using systems such as Nikon’s Eclipse Ti inverted microscope, the Eclipse Ni upright microscope, the AZ100 multizoom upright microscope and the powerful A1+/A1R+ confocal laser microscopes and A1 MP+ multiphoton confocal microscope systems. The Nikon IM-Q and CT BioStation time-lapse imaging incubator microscope systems are ideal for stem cell studies, providing carefully controlled conditions which promote consistent and healthy cell populations and enable cell growth in culture to be easily monitored. In addition, these advanced microscope systems are ideal for live-cell imaging to provide critical insight into the fundamental nature of cellular and tissue function and development. Fluorescent probes allow monitoring of protein expression, locating and tracking molecules and identification of intermolecular interactions and transdifferentiation. Multiple probes may be used simultaneously and identified with high resolution using spectral imaging capabilities.
