Points on recording

To reduce cell damage, the excitation light shutter has been controlled so that it turns off automatically when recording is not in progress. The duration of irradiation for the excitation light has been kept to a minimum, making it possible to record faint fluorescent light for a long period of time with a highly sensitive camera.
With the user-friendly operation screen interface, anyone can easily perform time-lapse recordings.
