Microscope - Biological
With over 90 years expertise in the field, Nikon has always been at the forefront of optical and technological innovation, promoting creativity and trustworthiness as part of the company's global mission statement. The Nikon story began back in 1917 when three Japanese optical manufacturers merged to form a company known as Nippon Kogaku KK ('Japan Optics'), producing precision optical glass.
The new Millennium saw the birth of digital imaging solutions for microscopy and Nikon once again led the market in providing superior and practical cameras for these applications. Applications and disciplines which were once totally separated are now becoming closer in fields such as Lab-on-a-Chip and Biophysics, and these have led to the development of unique interdisciplinary products including, super resolution systems N-SIM and N-STORM plus the confocal range of microscope systems allowing the use of ground breaking techniques such as Nano-crystal and GaAsP technology. Cell studies are now demanding the ability to study live, in situ cellular interactions and movements for which Nikon has responded with the very latest technology.
