ZEISS SteREO Discovery.V8

Crisp and Brilliant Images throughout the Whole 8:1 Manual Zoom Range

Improved Stereoscopic Image

The noticeably improved threedimensional image perception helps you to prepare and manipulate your samples - especially in developmental biology and quality assurance. Acquire crisp and brilliant images throughout the whole 8:1 zoom range. The selectable click-stops for discrete magnification steps allow you to calibrate pixel sizes in the imaging software packages ZEN and AxioVision.

More Insight for Your Research in Developmental Biology

  • Gentle, uniform illumination for your zebrafish and Drosophila embryos
  • Use CL 1500 ECO fiber-optic cold light source and a wide range of light guides and accessories to make sample structures stand out
  • Switch from shadow-free annular illumination to lateral oblique light at the click of a button - another plus for your research
  • Connect numerous phototubes for digital photo and video cameras with the 60N interface
  • Simply upgrade your fluorescence equipment with PentaFluar S
  • Use up to five different fluorescence filters

Your Quality Tool for Quality Assurance

  • Acquire crisp images without distortion to determine surface characteristics
  • Profit from excellent 3D impression
  • Make your work comfortable: define the viewing angle between five to fourty five degrees using the ergo phototube
  • Digitally measure and record your sample
  • Freedom of movement with large working distance
  • Extract maximum information from your sample with variable illumination options
Coaxial epi-illumination S  Particularly suitable for flat, specular specimens.

Coaxial Reflected-Light Illuminator S
Use Coaxial Reflected-Light Illuminator S for the observation of smooth, specular surfaces and highly reflective specimens such as polished metal parts and microelectronic devices. The illumination and observation conditions are optimized for the PlanApo S 1.0x objective. For different objectives a lever for switching the fiber light guide position allows you to optimize the illumination.

  • Homogeneous illumination of large object fields
  • Light manager for coaxial lighting stabilizes the brightness during zooming
