ZEISS Axio Zoom.V16 for Biology

Your Fluorescence Stereo Zoom Microscope for Large Fields

Axio Zoom.V16 combines a 16x zoom with a high numerical aperture of NA 0.25, moving to the forefront of all known stereo and zoom microscopes. It achieves a very high aperture in the medium zoom range already. You get superior brightness in large object fields and view complete model organisms in fluorescence contrast.

Bright Fluorescence In Large Fields

Axio Zoom.V16 gives you superior fluorescence brightness in large object fields. With Plan-NEOFLUAR Z 2.3x you achieve a numerical aperture of NA 0.5 in an object field of 1.5 millimeters. With this very high numerical aperture, you can perform your routine screenings as well as your most demanding multidimensional imaging applications in the medium zoom range already.

  • EZoom modes optimized for your application
  • EIntelligent transmitted light over the whole zoom range

Zoom Modes

Optimized for Your Application

The eZoom works with a motorized iris diaphragm coupled to the zoom. Simply select the best mode for your purpose:

  • Brightness mode
    Observe fluorescence images over the complete zoom range with highest possible brightness.
  • Eyepiece mode
    This is ideal if you work mainly with ocular observation using conventional illumination. You zoom from large object fields with maximum depth of field to high magnifications with maximum resolution.
  • Camera mode
    Axio Zoom.V16 adapts to the performance of your camera. You get an optimal relation between resolution and depth of field across the whole zoom range.

Intelligent Transmitted Light Over the Whole Zoom Range

In addition to brightfield, darkfield and oblique illumination, you get an increased contrast brightfield at the touch of the Best Mode button. Axio Zoom.V16 determines the actual optical state and optimizes transmitted light automatically. Adjust the setting precisely to your application and then simply save and reload it for your next experiment – once again, at the touch of a button.
