ZEISS Axioscope 5

In the past, documenting samples with multiple fluorescent labels in your routine lab could be time consuming. To get best image quality, you needed to manually switch filters, adjust illumination intensities and exposure times and to snap each single channel image. For four different channels, this could sum up to 15 steps and clicks. With Smart Microscopy, this is a thing of the past. Axioscope 5 with Axiocam 202 mono and Colibri 3 LED illumination take this workload from you. You don’t even need to move your hands from the microscope stand anymore. All you have to do is focus and press Snap – and you’re done! You can now concentrate on the essence of your job and let Axioscope 5 work for you. You’ll work more efficiently, save time and produce high contrast images with best image quality.

Switch effortlessly between the channels for UV, blue, green and red excitation. Just select the relevant channels and press Snap. The system then takes over and automatically adjusts the exposure time, acquires the image, switches the channel and starts again. That’s it: you get your overlayed multichannel fluorescence image including scale bar – even without a PC.

Smart Microscopy Makes Your Digital Documentation Faster

Axioscope 5 makes documenting your specimens very efficient. The colour impression shows up in the camera image exactly the same as it appears through the eyepieces.

This smart microscope makes automatic adjustments for brightness and white balance to keep digital documentation easy. All you have to do is focus on your sample, press the ergonomic Snap button on the microscope, and that’s it.

Benefit from Homogenous Illumination

Axioscope 5 uses its LED to provide powerful illumination with high colour fidelity. You will clearly see the subtle differences in your sample. And experience all the advantages of LED illumination such as stable colour temperature, low energy consumption and long lifetime.

Axioscope 5 comes with a light intensity manager that produces uniform brightness at all magnifications. Adjusting lamp brightness when you change magnification is a thing of the past. That saves you time and reduces eye fatigue, too.

This is Smart Microscopy – Digital Documentation Made Easy

Used in combination with Axiocam 202 mono or Axiocam 208 color, you have the full advantage of a smart standalone microscope system. Camera settings such as white balance, contrast and exposure time are done automatically. Without needing additional imaging software or even a computer, you can:

  • – Snap images and record videos directly from your stand
  • – Use the mouse to control your camera via on-screen display (OSD)
  • – Save settings
  • – Store images with all metadata of the microscope and camera as well as scaling information
  • – Predefine the name or rename your image

Choose Between Three Configurations

With Axioscope 5 and Smart Microscopy you are prepared for today and the future. Choose the configuration, which suits best to your lab workflow:

Stand-alone for Basic Routine Imaging

Axioscope 5 in combination with Axiocam 202 mono or Axiocam 208 color operates independently of a computer system.

ZEISS Labscope for Advanced Routine Imaging

Operating Axioscope 5 and Axiocam 202 mono or Axiocam 208 color with the imaging app Labscope is the ideal choice for connected microscopes and standard multichannel fluorescence imaging.

ZEISS ZEN for Research Applications
With the imaging software ZEN you can perform advanced imaging tasks with your Axioscope 5.
