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, 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).
