ZEISS Axio Observer section

High-Resolution 3D Visualization & Evaluation​

The preconfigured microscope bundle ZEISS Axio Observer section is designed to provide streamlined workflows for cost-effective 3D imaging from data collection to evaluation. Bring your 3D experiments in cell and developmental biology to the next level.

  • 3D cell culture models (organoids, spheroids)​
  • Small model organisms (yeast, C. elegans, zebrafish)
  • Cell monolayers
  • Tissue sections
Detect rare events like mitosis with guided acquisition. Improve image quality with deconvolution. Visualize your results in 3D.

A Streamlined Process from Acquisition to 3D Visualization​

Equip yourself with tools for guided and automated image acquisition to break through previous experimental barriers. Utilize software-based optical sectioning as the most light- and cost-efficient method for high-resolution 3D imaging. Or include ZEISS Apotome 3 structured illumination for increased optical sectioning power and gain sharp images even of thicker samples. Process your images during acquisition using one of several functions like deconvolution, deblurring or denoising.
