Microscopy Solutions for Digital Classrooms

Share Microscope Images in Your Networks

Your students use microscopes in order to understand the morphology of human, animal or plant cells. They need to gain deeper knowledge of sample preparation, staining procedures and finally sample examination to identity e.g. blood cell disorders. Some lectures require a thorough knowledge of various microscopy techniques and software for image acquisition and documentation.
Hand drawings of samples like onion ephithelium or oral mucosa still play an important role. In addition, digital school equipment e.g. smart boards, tablets, e-learning and interactive video courses are becoming an essential part of your learning and teaching methods.

Future Technology in the Classroom

Microscopy Training Courses – an Essential Part in the Curricula of Life- and Earth Sciences

Whenever you are considering to buy new school equipment, count on a digital classroom. An interactive digital classroom helps to produce the engaging atmosphere that motivates students to discover their field of study and to reach their learning goals.

With ZEISS microscopes and the imaging app Labscope, it is easy to create a digital classroom with a network of connected school microscopes. You can now monitor all student microscopes from your iPad or iPhone. Get students awareness by interactively involving them in your teaching. Students gain learning success in a playful way and have fun in your training session by sharing their microscope images in their networks.

Benefit from a digital classroom:

  • Move freely in the classroom while monitoring student microscopes.
  • Talk to students and share their live stream with others.
  • Pick a student’s images and explain them to others.
  • Share images and videos online.
  • Choose between two standard infrastructures (LAN or HDMI), or combine them for best performance.


  • Hainberg Gymnasium Göttingen

    Paul Mühlenhoff is using ZEISS Primo Star microscopes in his 10th grade biology class.  The interconnectivity of the microscopes helps him and his students to digitally share their observations under the microscope and thus make it a seamless and rich learning experience.

  • University of Exeter

    Dr. Mark Ramsdale is the Educational Director in the Department of Biosciences of the University of Exeter. In his class, first year medical students are examining protists using phase contrast, transmitted light illumination and dark field illumination. The interconnected ZEISS Primo Star microscopes help his class to compare microscopic images digitally and enable them to easily share their observations.

  • School for Medical Laboratory Technicians

    For Chrisiane Maschek, ZEISS microscopes is one of the most important tools to teach her medical laboratory technicians their profession. In class, they are using ZEISS microscopes with high illumination power for fluorescenes and phase contrast to examine tissue samples. The interconnected microscopes enable to create a digital classroom - motivating students and energizing instructors at the same time.
