With its freely accessible infinite space, Axio Imager 2 allows you to add additional components such as light sources and detectors as needed.

Configuration Flexibility

To Expand Your Research Possibilities

Choose your system from six different stand versions and combine it with high-end fluorescence imaging systems such as Apotome 3 or the LSM 9 laser scanning microscopes. With its freely accessible infinite space, Axio Imager 2 allows you to add additional components such as light sources and detectors as needed. You can easily adapt the system components to the requirements of your applications.

The motorized 10-position reflector turret synchronized with the fast Colibri LED light source exhibits a wide selection of excitation wavelengths for brilliant results without pixel shift.

Smart Motorization

For Highest Productivity and Ease of Use

The motorized 10-position reflector turret synchronized with the fast Colibri LED light source exhibits a wide selection of excitation wavelengths for brilliant results without pixel shift. The intelligent, motorized aperture and luminous field diaphragm automatically control contrast and illumination in both the reflected and transmitted light beam path, ensuring reproducible and convenient operation.

Highest Performance through Perfect Interaction of All Components​

  • Infinity contrast & color corrected system

    Infinity Contrast & Color Corrected System

    With its freely accessible infinite space, additional components such as light sources and detectors can be added simply and rapidly as needed.

  • Intuitive controls

    Intuitive Controls

    Managers for light and contrast ensure reproducible conditions. Auto Component Recognition ensures that objectives and filters are automatically detected.

  • High-performance objectives

    High-Performance Objectives

    Benefit from a wide range of objectives for both fixed and live cell imaging applications especially at high magnifications.

  • Motorized DIC

    Motorized DIC

    With the motorized DIC turret, you can automatically shift between different contrast methods to push either resolution or contrast.

  • Motorized diaphragm sliders

    Motorized Diaphragm Sliders

    For reliable reproducibility, objective-specific aperture adaptations can be saved and loaded again at any time.

  • High-efficiency (HE) Filter sets

    High-Efficiency (HE) Filter Sets

    The HE fluorescence filters provide high transmission for excitation and emission with up to 50 % shorter exposure times compared to conventional filters.

  • LED illumination

    LED Illumination

    LED light sources combine constant color temperature independent of brightness, low heat radiation, and long service life.
