Speed up Your Live Cell Experiments

Incubators typically restrict the access to your sample, making formerly simple tasks like positioning, focusing and generation of an overview image more complicated. AI Sample Finder performs these tasks with the push of a button. Application of immersion media to your water immersion objectives is performed in less than a second without changing focus, stage position, or disturbing the incubation chamber for independent, automated imaging. Environmental parameters are automatically recorded so that you can be confident that the observed dynamics are not caused by fluctuating temperature or atmosphere. Additionally, ZEISS Axio Observer live is equipped with advanced software tools for streamlined analyses of large, multivalued timelapse experiments. ​
