Primovert microscopes cover

In partnership with ZEISS, Darwin Microfluidics has designed the best Primovert setup for your everyday experiments in microfluidics and cell culture.

 

Examine Living Cells – Quickly and Efficiently

Now you can study the morphography of living cells and evaluate their development with this compact inverted microscope from ZEISS. Primovert is perfectly suited to your cell culture laboratory. It enables fast, efficient investigations of both unstained cells in phase contrast and GFP-labeled cells in fluorescence contrast. It fits straight into your laminar flow cabinet to work directly in a sterile environment.

And it brings you a welcome degree of flexibility, too, with its camera compatibility and the Labscope imaging app for iPad: observe your cells from outside the sterile working space and evaluate them with colleagues.

 

A Complete Solution for Your Cell Culture Laboratory

Everything about Primovert is designed to facilitate your daily work. Use the switch on the stand to shift effortlessly from phase contrast to fluorescence
contrast, evaluating both unstained and fluorescent cells. Take your choice of mounting frames to work with various receptacles such as Petri dishes and well plates. And when you’re using culture flasks, simply remove the condenser to increase the working distance. This compact inverse microscope fits neatly into your laminar flow cabinet so you can work directly in a sterile environment.

 

As Rapid as Your Work Flow: Switch It On and Start Evaluating – All Day, Every Day

Your Primovert is always ready to go. Just use the convenient benchtop switch to turn the microscope on and off. Thanks to the integrated LED fluorescence, you start working right away – without warming up or cooling down. When idle, it shuts itself off automatically after 15 minutes – another energy saving feature. Primovert is easy to use, easy on running costs – and easy on you, too, with an ergotube that lets you find a comfortable working posture and stay relaxed, hour after hour. Adjust the viewing angle to your individual needs and use the microscope in a standing position or seated.

Applications

HeLa Cells Primovert   GFP Cells Primovert

HeLa cells. Magnification 20×, phase contrast - U2OS cells, GFP labeled Magnification 20×, fluorescence contrast

 

  • Use the nosepiece with multiple objectives to change the magnification 4 – 40×, phase ring.

Primovert has a 4× nosepiece and a selection of objectives. You can use Plan-Achromat and LD Plan-Achromat objectives with phase ring and magnifications of 4× and 40×.

  • Use the microscope over several hours.

In automatic mode, Primovert operates in standby. If the device is not used for 15 minutes, it automatically shuts itself off.

Simply press a button to reactivate it.

The ergotube was designed for extended periods of use. You can adjust the viewing height and angle individually to work comfortably in either a seated or standing position.

  • Evaluate unstained, transparent samples such as living cells.

Primovert is equipped with phase contrast. You use a universal phase slider (Ph0, Ph1, and Ph2) for 10×, 20×, and 40× magnification to eliminate the need for adjusting the phase position when adjusting the magnification. Only the Ph1 magnifiers are included within this microscope pack.

  • Use the microscope in a sterile environment (laminar flow cabinet in cell culture laboratory).

Primovert’s compact design enables the microscope to fit into any cell culture laboratory. You can put Primovert straight in your laminar flow cabinet.

  • Use various cell culture vessels such as petri dishes, multiwell plates and culture flasks.

Primovert comes with a variety of object guides and stages inserts for different cell culture vessels. Use the stage expansion if you want to stack several vessels on the edge. When working with culture flasks, simply remove the condenser.

Primovert is an inverted microscope so it’s easy to observe cells that collect at the bottom of cell culture vessels from below.
