A1 ER: Enhance Your Confocal Resolution

Using powerful GPU-based processing and specialized deconvolution algorithms, the spatial resolution of your A1+ [or A1R+] confocal microscope can be dramatically enhanced with minimal processing time.  

High quality PSF models for Nikon’s high performance objective lenses take the guesswork out of deconvolution analysis.  Other features include automatic or manual mode for iteration selection, enhanced spherical aberration correction, and robust algorithms for noise estimation and removal. 

With ER your theoretical resolution is your practical resolution.
