Zeiss Microscope

The Medical Laboratories BSL-3 Facility is pleased to make available a Zeiss Axiovert 200M Apotome inverted light microscope.

The system includes an environmental chamber to control CO2 and temperature levels. It is equipped with fluorescent filter sets for UV, GFP, RFP and far-red fluorophores and has phase and DIC transmitted light capability. The new Zeiss system can operate as a traditional wide-field microscope, or using the Apotome, as a patterned illumination optical sectioning system. Images are digitized by a high-resolution, high-sensitivity Zeiss AxioCam.
