Carl Zeiss Microscopy, Thornwood, NY, has debuted the Zeiss Celldiscoverer 7, developed to combine the user-friendly automation features of a boxed microscope with the image quality and flexibility of a classic inverted research microscope. The unit can be adapted to a whole range of tasks and applications. The system comes with various incubation and detection options, and can be tailored to labs’ individual needs. Users can choose from a range of microscope cameras for live cell experiments and rapid time-lapse recordings. Additionally, the Zeiss Axiocam 512 mono microscope camera’s 12 MP resolution and large field of view allow fluorescence screening. Also, a hardware-based autofocus not only finds and keeps the focus automatically, but also detects the thickness and optical properties of the sample carrier. The information is then used to adapt the Zeiss Autocorr objectives to ensure optimized image quality. For research use only. For more information, visit Carl Zeiss Microscopy.
