Nikon Biostation

The Biostation is a unique instrument that integrate multi-wavelength, multi-point and incubation system into one device. It is specifically designed to perform ultra-long term imaging (days). The system can also perform image-tiling to vastly increase the combined field of view needed to follow applications such as scrap wound assays or tumor invasion experiments. The Biostation is capable of red/green and phase imaging.

The system was acquired through the generous support from Northwestern University Office for Research and Skin Disease Research Center.
