M05 - Axio Imager.Z2 (upright) with sCMOS camera, Axiocam colour camera and Apotome2
The M05 system runs under Zen Blue, is an upright widefield microscope equipped with transmitted and fluorescent light source. It can be used to acquire multicolour fluorescent images of fixed samples, as well as phase contrast (Ph), differential interference contrast (DIC) and colour transmitted light images.
Additionally the system is equipped with Apotome2 - a structure illumination imaging technology that combines the advantages of WF (very good contrast AND speed) and confocal (optical sectioning).
The final image is calculated out of 3 images acquired in the structured illumination mode.
This technique can be applied to all fluorophores and a wide range of specimens.
A motorized XY stage allows multiposition experiments.
