Easy to Use for Powerful Workflow Efficiencies

Axioscope is designed to make everyday operations as comfortable and safe as possible.

  • Ergonomic Operating Concept: Axioscope is designed to make everyday operations as comfortable and safe as possible. Important controls – like focus drive, stage drive, light manager and image capture – are arranged on both sides such that they can be operated without overworking either hand.
  • Easy Image Acquisition: Simply press the ergonomically located snap button, and acquire images while maintaining control over position, magnification or contrast. In this way, the microscopic examination can be fully documented, while you always keep the sample in view.
  • Perfect Control of All Stage Axes: The operating concept of Axioscope 7, the motorized product version, gives you full control over all stage movement, without having to take your hands off the microscope. Switch the focus drives between Z-axis control and XY stage control with a simple press of a button.
