Click to ViewZEISS Axio Imager 2 upright microscope can be used for many diverse needs. With manual, semi-motorized, and fully motorized options it can be used for observation and imaging of different types of slides prepared during experimentation. of multi-channel, complex experiments. Not just flexible, Axio Imager 2 is designed to be stable, minimizing vibrations and thermal influences, crucial for long time lapse experiments.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewMicroscope magnifies the size of the object by a system of lens arrangement. It has a series of two lenses; (i) the objective lens close to the object to be observed and (ii) the ocular lens or eyepiece, through which the image is viewed by eye. Light from a light source passes through a thin transparent object. The objective lens produces a magnified ‘real image’ first image of the object. This image is again magnified by the ocular lens to obtain a magnified ‘virtual image’ (final image), which can be seen by eye through the eyepiece and captured by camera.
