論文での利用機器・謝辞の書き方

論文の"Material and Methods"などで利用機器を記す場合、例えば以下のように機材の詳細を記す必要があります(この記載例は、Station-3の場合です)。特に、対物レンズの記載は、顕微鏡観察の場合は必須です。

An inverted microscope (Ti-E, Nikon) equipped with a Plan Apo VC ×60 objective lens (NA 1.40, Nikon) and micro scanning stage (BI XY stage, Chuo Precision Industrial Co. Ltd.) was used to observe fluorescence images in living cells maintained at 37°C with a continuous supply of 95% air and 5% carbon dioxide by using a stage-top incubator (INUBG2TF-WSKM, Tokai Hit). Images were taken by cooled charge-coupled device (CCD) camera (Orca-R2, Hamamatsu Photonics).

またStation-1(Nikon:A1)での共焦点観察の場合も、"メインは顕微鏡で、そこに共焦点システムが(周辺機器として)実装されている"ことになります(顕微鏡がないと、画像が撮れません)。そこで前述と同様に、以下の2例のように顕微鏡や対物レンズの記載が必要となります。ご留意のほどを、よろしくお願いいたします。

Confocal images were taken by a confocal laser scannning microscopy system (Nikon A1 and Ti-E) equipped with a Plan Apo VC x60 objective lens (NA 1.40, Nikon).

A Nikon Ti-E inverted microscope equipped with a Nikon A1Rsi spectral imaging confocal scanning system was used for confocal microscopy experiments.


そして以下には、学術論文での謝辞の文例を載せておきます。論文を書かれる際には、どうぞ参考としてください。

*We are grateful to the Nikon Imaging Center at Hokkaido University for being very helpful with confocal microscopy, image acquisition, and analysis.

*We would like to thank the Nikon Imaging Center at Hokkaido University for technical support.

*The authors would like to thank the Nikon imaging Center at Hokkaido University for imaging equipment and software.

*Confocal images were acquired in the Nikon Imaging Center at Hokkaido University.

*Microscopy analysis of samples was performed in the Nikon Imaging Center at Hokkaido University, using a Nikon Ti-E inverted microscope.

いずれにしろ、詳細がご不明の場合は、いつでもお問い合わせください。
