M16 - Axioobserver Z1 (inverted) with sCMOS camera and incubation

System Description

The M16 system is an inverted widefield microscope for brightfield and fluorescence. It is equipped with temperature, CO2 and humidity control, a motorized xyz-stage as well as a sCMOS camera. All components are controlled by ZEN Blu.
The system is fully programmable and therefore able to run multidimensional experiments including any combination of the following: multiple positions, multiple wavelengths including brightfield (DIC), z-Stacks, time-lapse.
This makes it suitable e.g. for  various live cell experiments or the automatic acquisition of a large amount of images (screening).
