The decisive gain in contrast: FITC fluorescence micrograph without Light Trap (1), with Light Trap (2)
Multichannel fluorescence is playing an increasingly important role in research, whether used alone or in combination with other optical methods. There is a current trend, for example, from single channel FISH (fluorescence in-situ hybridization) to multicolor FISH, where combinations of up to seven fluorochromes yield 24 colors for automatic chromosome analysis. In many research labs, different mutants of fluorescent proteins are combined with standard fluorescent dyes. So it is becoming more and more important to have six or more positions on the filter turret. With Axioplan 2 imaging, you have eight.
With 8 positions in the lead : Filters and filter turret
Eight filter places, easily accessible in a compact turret without compromising the full 25 mm field of view: This is top performance combined with unequalled flexibility. You can insert a wide range of dichroic mirror-emission filter combinations, Optovar modules and a DIC analyzer for convenient change. If you install the optional external filter changer, you can use up to eight excitation filters as well.

Differentiation by better contrast : DIC with a memory
For studies in developmental biology using DIC microscopy, the maximum in resolution and contrast is only just good enough. To achieve this, all parts of the instrument must be perfectly tuned to each other as is the case with Axioplan 2 imaging. For every objective, there is a specially matched DIC slider, including one with Snarmont contrasting. Once the DIC slider has been set, the objective will keep the setting in mind. Axioplan 2 imaging comes with an extensive range of ICS objectives of renowned, continuously optimized Zeiss quality, with superb contrast and resolution. One of them will be ideally suited to your current application, whatever it may be. rescence-labeled antibody, an iondepicting dye or another specific marker, it is too faint to be detectable with optics of any but the highest performance. Objectives from Carl Zeiss feature highest NA (limited only by the laws of physics), ideal chromatic correction and image flattening, and the very best transmission properties for visible light, UV and IR imaging. In short: maximum performance for every application.

Focus On Research

Perfect specimen protection : The high-speed shutter
Correct excitation : AttoArc 2
With AttoArc 2 you can control the The microscopy of live objects is particularly demanding. In order to get the best images, specimens must be treated with the least possible damage. The motorized high-speed shutter of Axioplan 2 imaging provides a superb advantage in fluorescence work. With shutter speeds down to a few microseconds, it is the perfect solution for GFP images of living systems. Simply leave the light source on and control exposure time with the shutter. This reduces bleaching and phototoxicity of the specimen.

Fast but gentle : The SoftStop function
intensity of the excitation light via the brightness of the lamp source. As a result, you automatically get signals of the intensity needed for documentation. In computer-controlled multichannel fluorescence work, the light intensity will be automatically adjusted from channel to channel. Whether with manual or digital control, AttoArc 2 will always provide signals of optimum strength. And this means perfect results.
With the new SoftStop function, you can change reflector modules and objectives within fractions of a second. This will save valuable time, especially in automated processes. In addition, a special algorithm prevents switching oscillations otherwise inevitable at such speeds a feature that is easy on your microscope and your specimens.

Axioplan 2 imaging ICS Optics
Infinity optics were designed in the early 1930s on the basis of August Khlers concepts and calculations. But it took the invention of ICS (Infinity Color-corrected System) in 1986 to make this type of optics the core of a complete range of instruments. ICS optics aim at achieving the best possible performance with the least possible number of optical elements. As every optical element contributes to limiting the systems light transmission, minimizing the number of optical components means maximizing the overall optical performance. ICS optics and SI (System Integration) stand design have brought about visible improvements in optical performance with regard to image contrast, brightness and detail resolution. Today, after more than a decade, the ICS concept is still unsurpassed. With continued upgrading of the imaging elements and advanced manufacturing processes, ICS optics have become indispensable for providing the high apertures and long working distances needed for the applications of today and tomorrow.

If flexibility and a wide range of techniques are required, universal semi-apochromatic Plan-Neofluar objectives are the answer. With transmission from the near UV, semi-apochromatic correction, excellent image flattening, optimum working distances, low strain and high numerical apertures, they are ideal for brightfield, darkfield, phase contrast, DIC, polarization and fluorescence. High contrast makes them perfect for capturing sharp, clear images for post processing and subsequent analysis.

Photon counters

The Fluar range is designed for maximum transmission and photon collection. Constructed from special optical glass, these objectives feature high numerical apertures and high contrast, ensuring the best light transmission throughout the visible spectral range down to the near UV. Fluar objectives are your best choice if you want to capture even the faintest fluorescence signal.

Immersion specialists

For the examination of living organisms and immersion preparations, you need high-performance objectives capable of optically compensating differing refractive indices and volumes of the media involved. These requirements are best met by the special family of MultiImmersion Plan Neofluar objectives or the apochromatically corrected C-Apo family for the most demanding applications. Both will always give you brilliant images.
