ZEISS SteREO Discovery.V12

Your Modular Stereo Microscope with Motorized 12x Zoom​

SteREO Discovery.V12 enhances resolution and contrast in biology and quality assurance. Observe your Drosophila or zebrafish embryos, stents, or circuit boards with an enhanced three-dimensional impression – and get reproducible results over the whole 12:1 motorized zoom range. Capture images that are crisp, rich in contrast and have excellent color fidelity. ​

Electronic Zoom Curves​ for Twice as Sharp Images

The zoom body is the core of stereo and zoom microscopes. When zooming, lenses have to be positioned precisely. eZoom replaces the mechanical curve with an electronic one. Stepping motors position the moveable lenses precisely and take the tolerances of the individual lenses into account. Capture visibly more details with a doubled precision, compared to a mechanical zoom body.​


  • EMotorized components for reliable results
  • EExcellent depth perception even at high magnification
  • EErgonomic operation with the SYCOP touch panel
  • EIntegrated into the modular system of SteREO microscopes

Take Control​ with the SYCOP Concept​

Use all essential functions of your stereo microscope without moving your eye from the eyepiece. Control all components with joystick and touch screen or assign individual functions to the buttons. Position the System Control Panel wherever you need it. Magnification and focus, control of brightness, display of current optical data – SYCOP makes your work easier.​


Modular Design​

Adapt the Microscope to Your Applications​

The modular design of ZEISS stereo and zoom microscopes allows you to benefit from a sophisticated system of interfaces and adapters, giving you maximum flexibility as you adapt your microscope to your needs.​
