In partnership with ZEISS, Darwin Microfluidics has designed a Axio Vert.A1 setup adapted to advanced experiments in microfluidics and biology.

This inverted microscope setup is made for both routine and advanced experiments,  in microfluidics and/or biology. Its robust design makes it a stable stand, and it is ready to be upgraded to follow your research works.

We have opted for a large specimen stage with an object guide, so that you will be able to find your area of interest and get it precisely in the center of the field of view. The 0.4 condenser (55 mm of working distance) gives you enough space to set up your experiment, and LED illumination provides a powerful source of white light.

We have chosen a set of objectives with magnification from 5x to 40x, giving you the ability of seeing the common microfluidics objects, like droplets. For better contrast, all objectives have Phase contrast, but using only one phase ring (Ph1).  

This microscope comes with a binocular tube with an intermediate photoport (0%/100%), letting you fit a camera, for which we also provide adapters as an option.

A flexible and evolutive stand

We selected the main components of this configuration to provide you with the essential techniques, but letting you the possibility to further upgrade your stand to benefit from other modalities.

 

Axiovert A1 Bio Contrast

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

Besides Brightfield and Phase contrast, you can upgrade your microscope with PlasDIC, VAREL, improved Hoffman Modulation Contrast (iHMC), DIC and Fluorescence contrast.

Axiovert A1 Bio LED

LED Excitation for fluorescence:
gentle on your living samples

This stand can be upgraded with epi-fluorescence, using among other sources LED excitation.
With LED, 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.
    Axiovert A1 Bio Ergonomic Design

    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.
