ZEISS Introduces All-in-One Cell Imaging System
Work outside the Box with ZEISS Axiovert 5 digital
ZEISS introduces its new all-in-one cell imaging system. ZEISS Axiovert 5 digital uses artificial intelligence (AI) and automatic functions to ease daily work in the cell lab. From scientific routine to basic research, from phase contrast to multichannel fluorescence imaging, processes become more efficient and results more reproducible. The system comes with an intuitive operating concept. Even novice users are guaranteed to produce brilliant images with ZEISS Axiovert 5 digital. Settings or adjustments take place automatically.
Flexibility and Speed
Lab technicians and researchers can use brightfield, phase and fluorescence contrast to investigate cell or tissue cultures. By pressing a button, the system takes over and automatically adjusts exposure time, acquires the image, switches the channel, and starts again. The images are automatically stored with all the microscope’s metadata, as well as scaling information.
ZEISS Axiovert 5 digital uses AI to optimally support workflows. Cell counting and cell confluency can be automatically determined by readily available AI modules with a click of a button. Users can instantly measure and display the percentage of cell coverage or number of cells in their Petri dish.
Easy and Ergonomic Handling
The ergonomic design of ZEISS Axiovert 5 digital supports proper system operation and thus makes it the perfect fit for multi-user environments. By pressing a button, users are able to trigger single snaps, multi-channel image acquisitions or video recordings – with minimal training and prior knowledge.
