VAAS Detection is offered as an upgrade option to Nikon's A1 series of confocal laser point scanning systems, which seamlessly integrate with the new Ti-E research inverted microscope. The fully-automated confocal imaging system literally brings biological imaging to life, capturing high-quality confocal images of cells and molecular events at high speed and enhanced sensitivity.
After incubation for 24 h, monolayers of ECV304 were maintained in M199 medium containing 10% fetal calf serum and observed daily with an inverted microscope. The infected cells exhibited few cytopathologic changes, displaying only a few rounded cells.

Traditionally, Raman instruments were built from an inverted microscope. The addition of an excitation laser, light detector, filters and a spectrometer or monochromator allows the acquisition of spectral light, which in turn supplies important chemical information that eludes conventional microscopy.
