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

 

Primovert HDcam: a Complete and Compact Solution

The inverted cell culture microscope Primovert HDcam is designed for ultimate flexibility. Primovert enables fast, efficient investigations of unstained cells in phase contrast and fluorescent cells in fluorescence contrast. Its compact size allows to work directly in a sterile environment and experience the safety of working with contaminated or sensitive material into your laminar flow cabinet.

 

The Well-Connected Cell Culture Lab

Capture images and videos with Labscope for iPad

Take advantage of numerous interfaces on Primovert HDcam and unleash the functionality of the Labscope imaging app for iPad to convert your Primovert into an integrated HD camera with a wireless-enabled imaging system. Labscope makes it easier than ever before to capture images and records videos of your microscope samples. Create notes and reports, edit images and save the files on your Windows network. Or just as easily, share them with colleagues – whenever and wherever you want. Thanks to the interfaces of Primovert HDcam, you connect the microscope to this monitor via HDMI and transfer and display your results centrally. Cell evaluations are visualized from the distance.

Unleash the functionality of the Labscope imaging app to convert your Primovert into an integrated HD camera with a wireless-enabled imaging system. Whether in the lab or classroom, Labscope makes it easier than ever before to capture images and records videos of your microscope samples. Create notes and reports, edit images and save the files on your Windows network. Or just as easily, share them with colleagues – whenever and wherever you want. The intuitive user interface gets you to work immediately and minimizes the learning curve.

Monitor your microscope through the remote control or your computer

Document your investigations without leaving the sterile environment of your cell culture and snap your images by remote control, too. Primovert HDcam lets you capture microscope images, record videos, create notes and reports, and edit images. Save the files on your Windows network or do some “joined-up” thinking with colleagues via wireless devices. 

Take advantage of numerous interfaces on Primovert HDcam. The free ZEN lite imaging software provides a flexible means of transferring files to your PC or laptop. Transfer images to a monitor directly in the laminar flow cabinet. Or save your data to an SD card on the stand.

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

Your Primovert HDcam 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 its integrated camera that lets you find a comfortable working posture and stay relaxed, hour after hour.

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 to train technical assistants and students.

Primovert HDcam is designed for the joint observation of your results. You can connect one or several microscopes to each other. When using the Labscope imaging app for iPad, you can capture and share images.

Alternatively, you can use Primovert HDcam without an iPad with the help of laptop, projector and SD card interfaces.

  • Capture, edit, document and share results – for example, in quality-management.

Primovert HDcam is designed for the joint observation of your results. You can connect one or several microscopes to each other. When using the Labscope imaging app for iPad, you can capture and share images.

  • 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.

  • Enable several users to operate the microscope.

Primovert HDcam is designed for the joint observation of your results. You can connect one or several microscopes to each other. When using the Labscope imaging app for iPad, you can capture and share images.

  • 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 HDcam straight in your laminar flow cabinet, control it remotely and connect it to a laptop or monitor, thus working directly in a sterile environment.

  • 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.
