Nikon developed the microscope series to meet the demands for high resolution (both spatially and temporally) for a larger range of specimens and with greater throughput capabilities. Biological research is moving toward systems-level studies that include molecules to whole-cell populations, tissues, organoids, and even whole organisms.

The microscopes are equipped with NIS-Elements C imaging software and a suite of artificial intelligence-based tools that assist users in acquisition, processing, and analysis.
The company also said that users of the AX R's high-speed resonant scanner can acquire up to 720 frames per second (fps) at 2048 x 16 pixels. High-speed resonant scanning enables dynamic events to be easily captured, while also reducing the amount of time required to image large, fixed specimens, Nikon said.
