Zeiss Axio Observer Inverted Microscope

Inverted fluorescent microscope, Olympus color camera and Eppendorf micromanipulator
Location: S972

Zeiss Axio Observer Inverted Microscope has an Olympus DP72 RGB color camera, capable of both RGB histology images and fluorescence. Phase contrast is available for several objective lenses.Suitable specimens include:

* microscope slides ... histology and/or fluorescence (DAPI, green, red, the microscope has a Cy5 filter set but the camera is intended for RGB visible light).

* multiwell plates.

* 35 mm or 60 mm plastic (modest resolution and fluorescence sensitivity) and glass bottom (i.e. Mattek.com P35 series imaging dishes).

Please note: We are currently (July-October 2017) working on enabling our Zeiss Azio.Imager upright microscope to be the primary widefield fluorescence upright microscope for microscope slides. This system has a high sensitivity Photometrics Coolsnap HQ2 monochrome camera, which is more sensitive for fluorescence. Please be patient with us for this.
