This Zeiss Axio Observer.Z1 Fluorescence Motorized Microscope is currently set up for Brightfield with Phase Contrast and Fluorescence studies.
This microscope has installed Definite Focus Z-drift compensation system. This allows samples to be imaged over long periods of time with no drift or change in the focal point due to vibration or temperature fluctuations.
This Zeiss Axio Observer.Z1 Fluorescence Motorized Microscope is used for biological studies. The MU1003 AmScope CMOS digital color camera is capable of taking detailed digital images.
The Zeiss system includes a Dell Latitude i5 laptop to control the AmScope software for live images along with MicroManager software for automated microscope control.
All motorized components can be controlled via touch pad or software.
The video starts showing all included components of the Zeiss Axio Observer.Z1 Fluorescence Motorized Microscope system.
The camera pans around showing all motorized components being controlled manuals and via computer software.
The fluorescence system is shown being used. There is one final view of the entire Zeiss Axio Observer.Z1 Fluorescence Motorized Microscope.
