Place ZEISS Primovert right inside your Laminar Flow Box. Examine unstained cells in phase contrast and GFP-labeled cells in fluorescence contrast quickly and efficiently. The inverted microscope is especially perfect for universal tasks in clinical routine such as observation and maintenance of your lab cell culture. CRE investigations and live/dead assays are easily possible. With the integrated camera of Primovert HDcam you use your iPad and the free imaging App Labscope to discuss the monitor image together in the team. Snap microscope images, annotate and create reports, and share them easily and wirelessly.
ZEISS Axio Vert.A1
Choose from all standard contrasting techniques, including Differential Interference Contrast (DIC), to investigate your cell cultures. Axio Vert.A1 produces brilliant images to answer your questions. Axio Vert.A1 is the only system in its class with such a large range of features, compact enough in fact to sit directly beside your incubator. Axio Vert.A1 is the ideal tool for basic and advanced cell culture tasks used in virology and immunology. It is robust, easy to use, ergonomic and provides fluorescence contrast. Immunofluorescence observation to detect viruses, CRE studies or live/dead assays are easily possible. With Axiocam 202 mono or 208 color you document your samples with just a press of a button. Labscope is the imaging App that allows you to acquire multichannel fluorescence images with ease, either with an iPad or a Windows based computer.
ZEISS LSM 900
What are you looking for in confocal imaging? Whatever your scientific question, you want to start with the best possible image quality and that means crisp contrast and the best resolution. This is particularly important in virology. You also want the highest sensitivity for gently imaging your living or fixed samples without bleaching. Your confocal LSM 900 with Airyscan 2 has all this and more. You image with 4 – 8× more signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and with superresolution. You also get the highest frame rates: the new Multiplex mode for Airyscan 2 adds smart detection schemes for parallel pixel acquisition. You can now observe dynamic processes such as virus-host interactions in living specimens gently – without sacrificing image quality. Plus, your LSM 900 has a genuinely small footprint, concentrating on the essence of a confocal and leaving off needless complexity. It fits easily into your lab – and it’s easy to use, too.
ZEISS Celldiscoverer 7
With Celldiscoverer 7, you combine the ease-of-use of an automated boxed microscope with the image quality and flexibility of a classic inverted research microscope. Celldiscoverer 7 calibrates itself, detects and focuses on your samples while the optics adjust themselves. Whether working with 2D or 3D cell cultures or tissue sections you will acquire better data in shorter times with this reliable automated live cell imaging platform. High throughput, high resolution screening is key in applied virus research or when investigating the response to certain drugs. What’s more, you can now add the new LSM 900 with Airyscan 2 to gently image dynamic processes in your living samples with highest framerates in superresolution.
Detect and characterize your viral pathogens with high resolution and in a large field of view - with Gemini technology. Gemini optics stands for more than 20 years of experience in field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). Produce high resolution transmission images of viruses with the aSTEM detector that are comparable to a TEM image. Benefit from easier sample processing and system handling procedures and the higher sample throughput of the SEM. With correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) you can obtain unique functional and structural information in virus-host interaction studies.
