RCM was added on an existing system: Nikon TiE; Zyla 4.2P, cobolt Skyra multiline laser, and imaging software NIS Elements with RCM plugin.
Main reason for choosing the RCM was the overall package of technical specifications, possibility to integrate RCM to an existing system, and outstanding fair price.
Favourite features of RCM?
Multi-color capability and the incredibly low laser power, which should prove useful for live cell experiments.
