ZEISS Axiolab 5 for Materials Microscope for Routine Materialography and Smart Documentation

Digital documentation has never been easier. ZEISS Axiolab 5 is the right choice if your routine materialography applications place high demands on ergonomic operation and efficient digital documentation. Since the Smart Microscopy concept does not require additional imaging software or even a computer, Axiolab 5 is also the first choice from an economic point of view.

  • Digital documentation made easy
  • Clever ergonomics for relaxed lab work
  • More economic and reliable

Digital Documentation Made Easy

Once you find a region of interest, simply press the Snap button right on the stand to acquire the image. It‘s as easy as that. You can control the microscope and its attached camera without even changing your grip while always focusing on your sample.

Clever Ergonomics for Relaxed Lab Work

Axiolab 5 offers you an easy handling, ergonomic user concept that‘s adapted to your lab routine. You can access all the main controls with just one hand, including the Snap button, stage drive, focus adjustment, and brightness control.

More Economic and Reliable

Save lab space and costs as Axiolab 5 does not require an additional computer and software. The Smart Microscopy concept also enables Axiolab 5 to be operated by both expert and non-expert users, always assuring short time to reliable data.

The Smart Microscopy Concept

A Workflow that will Boost Your Productivity

Used in combination with the microscope camera ZEISS Axiocam 208 color, you have the full advantage of a smart stand-alone microscope solution. Digital documentation is part of the system design: Just press the ergonomic Snap button and you‘re done. Camera settings such as white balance, exposure time, and image enhancement functions are done automatically. Without needing additional imaging software or even a computer, you can:

  • Snap images and record videos directly
  • Use your mouse (and optionally, a keyboard) to control your camera via on-screen display 
  • Save settings
  • Store images with all microscope and camera metadata as well as scaling information
  • Predefine the name or rename your image
