ZEISS Axio Zoom.V16 for Biology

Your Fluorescence Stereo Zoom Microscope for Large Fields

Axio Zoom.V16 combines a 16x zoom with a high numerical aperture of NA 0.25, moving to the forefront of all known stereo and zoom microscopes. It achieves a very high aperture in the medium zoom range already. You get superior brightness in large object fields and view complete model organisms in fluorescence contrast.

  • Bright fluorescence in large fields
  • Zoom modes optimized for your application
  • Intelligent transmitted light over the whole zoom range

Bright Fluorescence

In Large Fields

Axio Zoom.V16 gives you superior fluorescence brightness in large object fields. With Plan-NEOFLUAR Z 2.3x you achieve a numerical aperture of NA 0.5 in an object field of 1.5 millimeters. With this very high numerical aperture, you can perform your routine screenings as well as your most demanding multidimensional imaging applications in the medium zoom range already.

Zoom Modes

Optimized for Your Application

The eZoom works with a motorized iris diaphragm coupled to the zoom. Simply select the best mode for your purpose:

  • Brightness mode
    Observe fluorescence images over the complete zoom range with highest possible brightness.
  • Eyepiece mode
    This is ideal if you work mainly with ocular observation using conventional illumination. You zoom from large object fields with maximum depth of field to high magnifications with maximum resolution.
  • Camera mode
    Axio Zoom.V16 adapts to the performance of your camera. You get an optimal relation between resolution and depth of field across the whole zoom range.

Intelligent Transmitted Light

Over the Whole Zoom Range

In addition to brightfield, darkfield and oblique illumination, you get an increased contrast brightfield at the touch of the Best Mode button. Axio Zoom.V16 determines the actual optical state and optimizes transmitted light automatically. Adjust the setting precisely to your application and then simply save and reload it for your next experiment – once again, at the touch of a button.

Twice as Sharp Images with eZoom

The zoom body is the core of stereo and zoom microscopes. When zooming, lenses have to be positioned precisely. Until now, a metal component milled with great care would determine the exactness of this movement and the optical quality of your microscope.

eZoom replaces the mechanical curve with an electronic one. Stepping motors position the moveable lenses precisely and take the tolerances of the individual lenses into account. Each zoom body describes its own zoom curve and captures visibly more details. eZoom follows the base line for image sharpness over the magnification range with a doubled precision, compared to a mechanical zoom body.
