Axio Vert.A1: Simpler. More Intelligent. More Integrated.

 

Using All Standard Contrast Techniques, It’s in a Class of its Own

Bightfield, Phase contrast, PlasDIC, VAREL, improved Hoffman Modulation Contrast (iHMC) and Fluorescence contrast – Axio Vert.A1’s range reads like an index of contrast techniques. Alone in its class, it also employs Differential Interference Contrast. With DIC you visualize even the finest structures in your cells. And the new IVF contrast system is particularly impressive in IVF labs: without modifying the stand, you can switch freely between iHMC, PlasDIC and DIC as you investigate your
samples.

LED Excitation (not included in this pack) –
Gentle on Your Living Samples

You are working with fluorescence-labeled cells or specify transfection rates? With Axio Vert.A1 your samples remain safe in gentle LED light. This microscope brings you tomorrow’s standard –
today:

  • LED excitation has no unwanted UV component, so you will see a significant increase in the survival rate of your cells.
  • Profit from an extremely long life time of the light source.
  • Homogeneous illumination saves you time and bother on adjustments.
  • LED illumination immediately works with full intensity – there is no heating and cooling period required.

    Ergonomic Design Makes Your Work Easier

    Ease of use is built right into Axio Vert.A1: Whether you are sitting or standing, simply use intermediate pieces to work comfortably in an upright position. The ergo tube lets you tilt the eyepieces as much as you need. You can always view your samples easily. Thanks to ergonomic design of all operating parts, your routine tasks and workflows will be easier – especially when you’re in a particular hurry.

    Your Insight Into the Technology Behind it

     

    The IVF contrast system unites iHMC, PlasDIC and DIC without modification

    The new IVF contrast system is particularly effective in IVF labs: switch at will between iHMC, PlasDIC and DIC without modifying the stand. Axio Vert.A1 unites all three contrast techniques in one condenser and gives you enough room for micromanipulation.


    The stable transmitted light arm provides precision you can rely on

    Adapt all standard micromanipulators to the stable transmitted light arm of your Axio Vert.A1. Your work will be free of vibration: you regulate your movements under the microscope with extreme precision.

     

    iHMC reveals even finest structures in the cell nucleus

    You examine embryos  nd assess cell nuclei? iHMC shows nucleus shape and nucleoli brilliantly.

    PlasDIC improves your ICSI results

    Structures such as the Zona pellucida of oocytes are brought out particularly well by PlasDIC contrast technique. You can judge precisely where to inject, thanks to the strong and brilliant relief effect.

    DIC delivers brilliant images for IMSI

    Top marks to DIC with IMSI for producing brilliant images at high magnifications. You can  easily assess the shape and vacuole count of sperm cells.
