Mission

The Nikon Imaging Centre at King’s College London (NIC@King's) is a core facility for light microscopy developed in partnership between King’s College London and Nikon Instruments UK.

The mission of NIC@King's is to:

  • Promote innovation across a broad range of biological research fields by providing access to cutting edge microscopy and imaging equipment.
  • Provide training courses on basic and advanced light microscopy techniques for the benefit of researchers at King's and the London research community.
  • Introduction of the latest state of the art light microscopy and imaging to research community.
  • Serve as a learning platform for our regional corporate partners and contributors.
  • Develop new microscope setups and imaging techniques in response to feedback from the users of NIC@King's.
  • Provide a dedicated NIC@King's director for ongoing technical consultation and support.

Systems Available

A1Rsi with a Ti-E Inverted Microscope

The A1si is a powerful point scanning confocal microscope system suitable for a broad range of applications, particularly spectral resolution and rapid imaging. The A1R comes equipped with a unique hybrid scan head, incorporating both an ultra high-speed resonant scanner and a high-resolution galvano scanner, enabling simultaneous bleaching/photoactivation and acquisition. The enhanced spectral imaging capabilities feature acquisition of a 32-channel spectral image (512 x 512 pixels) with a single scan in 0.6 second. 512 x 32-pixel images can be captured at 24 fps.

 


A1R Multiphoton with FN1

The A1 confocal laser microscope system is Nikon's powerful fully-automated confocal imaging system, capable of capturing high-quality confocal images of cells and molecular events at high speed and enhanced sensitivity.


C2 Confocal Microscope with Ti-E Inverted Microscope

Built on a reputation of incredible stability coupled with superior optical technologies, the C2 includes four channel confocal fluorescence imaging, and vastly expanded spectral capabilities with the ability to capture and unmix data acquired at any channel resolution across the entire detector bandwidth. The system is fully controlled by NIS-Elements imaging software.
