Ts2-FL Compact Inverted Microscope for Fluorescence

Nikon Ts2-FL is an inverted microscope with a very small footprint, yet powerful and easy to use. Darwin Microfluidics has chosen a configuration to meet your needs for your daily experiments in microfluidics, including fluorescence.
Inverted microscope with binocular tube for transmitted-light brightfield, phase contrast, and epi-fluorescence including a set of 4 objectives (4x, 10x Ph1, 20x Ph1, 40x Ph1), extra-long working distance condenser 0.3, mechanical stage and universal mounting frame. You can choose up to 3 LED for epi-fluorescence, and the correspondig BandPass fluorescence filters sets will be included. Camera port included with the camera C-mount adapters (repartition 0/100 : 100/0). 
Ready to work out-of-the-box, it is one of the easiest-to-use inverted microscopes. Camera not included.

In partnership with Nikon, we have designed a configuration of Ts2-FL dedicated to the common observing and documenting tasks in microfluidics. This microscope can easily be coupled with a camera, and offers a nice entry-point in setting up your microfluidics lab.

This microscope system consists in an inverted stand Ts2 without any unnecessary accessory, enabling you to focus on your tasks with a microscope ready to be used out-of the box. The ELWD condenser lets 75 mm of free working distance to set up even complex experiments. The mechanical stage also provides a very precise manual positioning of your sample. 

We have chosen a set of objectives with magnification from 4x to 40x, giving you the ability of seeing the common microfluidics objects, like droplets. For better contrast, objectives from 10x to 40x have Phase contrast, sharing a single phase ring (Ph1). It can also be used to check on your cells!

Powerful white LED illumination makes it easy to view fast events such as droplet generation, even with a very low exposure time. Additionally, you can choose up to 3 fluorescence LED units (among 385, 470, 560, 625 nm) and the corresponding fluorescence filter cubes. Filter cubes are set on a turret which makes the operation simple, and when changing the turret position, LED will automatically switch from one to another.

A camera port is located on the left-side of the stand, which lets a clear view on the stage and eases the access to your chip. C-mount adapter available as an option.


Key features

 

 Ts2-FL cells gfp

Faster, brighter images with LED illumination

The LED light source is alignment-free, resulting in faster setup and consistent results. LEDs also eliminate frequent bulb replacements, saving the user time and money. High-intensity LED sources are employed for both Diascopic and Epi-fluorescence illumination. The built-in fly-eye-lens ensures uniform brightness across the entire field of view.

Ts2-FL ergonomy front

Streamlined Operation

Control buttons on the Ts2 microscope are intuitively located for a streamlined workflow. Commonly used controls such as the on/off and Diascopic/Epi-fluorescence switching buttons are located at the front panel for easy reach. Buttons pertaining to either Diascopic or Epi-fluorescence control are zoned to the left and right sides of the microscope body, respectively, to eliminate confusion and improve workflow efficiency.

Ts2 stage

Easy-to-use Mechanical Stage

The high-performance mechanical stage can accommodate a wide range of flasks and cell culture chambers. The new stage design also directly accommodates well plates. In addition, the sample holder is easily removed to accommodate large flasks.

Ts2-FL imaging port

Compact and highly stable body

Illumination modules including the Epi-fluorescence light source have been seamlessly incorporated into the microscope main body, resulting in a compact and simple design form that's also durable. The compact structure is also vibration-resistant to provide highly stable sample observations.

The camera port is located on the left side of the microscope to provide unimpeded viewing of the stage even when placed inside a culture hood.
