A powerful motorized microscope with real-time focus correction

Farewell to focus drift!

Focus drift is one of the biggest obstacles in time-lapse observation.

The new TE2000-PFS (Perfect Focus System) automatically detects the surface of the coverslip optically and continually corrects focus to compensate for even the most infinitesimal changes. Focus is maintained during long term observations and stage movement. Moreover, the TE2000-PFS includes all the functions of the acclaimed TE2000-E inverted research microscope.

• You can continue stable, in-focus observations over an extended period of time—perfect for time-lapse recording.

• You can minimize photobleaching, which keeps cells alive longer in fluorescence observation, through an overall reduction in the number of images captured.

• You will never again miss sudden changes in your specimen as PFS instantaneously corrects focus drift or

Z-axis changes resulting from temperature drop when adding reagents.

• You can freely select focus planes throughout the specimen and keep focusing on the selected plane thanks to the Simultaneous Optical Offset feature.

Always in perfect focus

Nikon Original!

When PFS is turned on, the position of the coverslip surface is always detected during observation. The data is continuously fed back to the extremely accurate Z-axis control focusing mechanism thanks to Nikon’s propriety COF (Continuous

Optical Feedback) technology*. Focusing precision of less than

1/3 the focal depth of the objective is maintained.

Perfect focus to the plane of interest

Nikon Original!

Focus is continuously corrected at any plane of interest throughout the specimen by the Simultaneous Optical Offset feature*. Unlike other systems that have to repeat focusing on the coverslip surface and then the plane of interest in alternate shifts, PFS can maintain constant focus on the plane of interest at millisecond refresh speed. Consequently, you will never again miss rapid events in your specimen because of focus drift.

*Patent pending

Focus is maintained during time-lapse recording

Focus detection with infrared light

PFS uses an LED emitting light in the infrared range and an internal linear CCD detector to detect the precise interface, so it does not intrude on the visible wavelengths used for fluorescence emission. This means you can carry out observation and focus control at the same time, with no influence at all on captured images. Single fluorescent molecules can also be visualized at a high S/N ratio.

Extendible configuration

Flexible extendibility facilitates the most sophisticated research

Nikon’s “stratum structure” enables flexible extendibility

Taking advantage of infinity optics, the TE2000’s stratum structure enables the extension of the distance between the microscope body and objectives by up to 80mm (max.).

This design allows the introduction of equipment such as laser tweezers or extra illumination into the optical path without modifying the microscope body as well as a variety of Nikon’s fluorescence illumination accessories.

Nikon’s “stratum structure” can efficiently provide a perfect system for your desired application. Multimode imaging capability is realized with a single microscope.

Epi-fluorescence images with high contrast

Noise Terminator mechanism

Responding to an increasing demand for fluorescence observation of higher S/N ratio images, Nikon created a new mechanism, Noise Terminator. The TE2000 incorporates this mechanism in the fluorescence illuminator and filter cubes to totally absorb stray light in the optical path. This significantly reduces noise and dramatically increases fluorescence image contrast.

Light source

Stray light

Fluorescence filter cube

Nikon’s two process mechanism first removes stray light from the filter cube completely, then absorbs it through the light absorbing material.

Therefore stray light is eliminated thoroughly.

8.

New High Quality Fluorescence Filters

Each filter/mirror incorporated in these filters has a very sharp rising edge at the corresponding wavelength. By minimizing the crossover of each signal, Nikon succeeded in significantly reducing the loss of excitation wavelength. As a result these filters can provide high quality epifluorescence images. There are three types of filters: CFP, GFP, and YFP.

High performance DIC prisms

The best balance of high contrast and high resolution

By changing the material structure, Nikon succeeded in significantly improving the functionality of the standard combination of DIC modules and sliders.

The excellent balance of contrast and resolution produces high quality DIC images with no color blur at any magnification.

Depending upon the type of specimen, either a high-contrast or high-resolution combination is selectable.

7.

CFI60 optical system

Clear, aberration-free images at any magnification

The TE2000 utilizes Nikon’s world renowned CFI60 infinity optics, known for crisp and clear images at any magnification, while providing higher NAs and longer working distances. The focal length of the tube lens is ideal at 200mm, which avoids induced aberration even when you introduce phase rings, DIC prisms or dichroic mirrors into the optical path.

Basic Observation Methods

Epi-fluorescence

Flawless, high-contrast fluorescence images

Thanks to a noise terminator mechanism and zoom illumination, the TE2000 achieves an unparalleled

S/N ratio and brightness. It performs well even for weak, single-molecular-level fluorescence observations at leading-edge research.

14

10.

The Noise Terminator mechanism directs deviated stray light out of the optical path. This results in images of high contrast and unparalleled S/N ratio.

9.

High quality fluorescence filters

Each filter/mirror incorporated in these filters has a very sharp rising edge at the corresponding wavelength that minimizes the crossover of signals.

Zoom-type lamphouse adapter allows the operator to increase light intensity.

Remote control unit and filter turret use phosphorescent display tags to enhance visibility during operation in dark rooms.

Nomarski DIC

With the new DIC system, it is possible to obtain the best image appropriate to the needs

Uniform coloration

Excellent images with uniform coloration are now possible, at any magnifications, by changing the material composition of the DIC prisms.

The perfect balance of high contrast and high resolution

The standard DIC prisms for the system condenser can cover observation at 10X-100X with only two modules that are greatly balanced in contrast and resolution at any magnification. To further closely fit your specific observation needs and specimens, the high contrast DIC prisms and high resolution DIC prisms are also selectable.

High resolution DIC

Observe ultra-minute structures at full optical performance

High NA condensers (Dry, Oil) are available to specifically address the needs for further detailed

DIC images of high magnification observations.

These configurations are optimized for a high resolution video enhanced contrast DIC system.

Viewed with the conventional phase contrast method

Phase contrast

Enables high-contrast imagery of minute living cells

Phase contrast is the most popular observation method for inverted microscopes. This method does not require the staining of the specimen, therefore you can observe and research precise structures of living cells without influencing the live organism.

New phase contrast— “Apodized” phase contrast

In addition to the conventional phase contrast objectives, Nikon developed the new Apodized phase contrast objectives to effectively reduce halos, which was considered troublesome with the conventional phase contrast method. The internal structures of cells ongoing cell division or thick phase objects used to submerge in halos, making observation difficult, but they are now visible with excellent contrast and a much wider tonal range.

For research level work, we are proud to introduce

CFI Plan Fluor ELWD ADL objectives, which excel in image flatness in addition to higher resolution and brightness.

ADL objective series

Hoffman Modulation Contrast®

3D-like images made easy

This technique permits observation of living specimens using plastic petri dishes, which is not possible with DIC. The combination of dedicated

HMC objectives and HMC condenser components creates high contrast 3D-like images of living transparent specimens without the halos seen under phase contrast.
