The IX73 inverted microscope system sets new standards in advanced live cell imaging with its compact frame, outstanding optical performance and exceptional flexibility.
Available as a one-deck system with a low, ergonomic stage or as a two-deck system with additional expansion capabilities. Both provide the ability to perform a multitude of imaging applications.
Compact with robust mechanical and thermal stability. Ideal for time-lapse or other long-term applications.
Adaptable automation of fluorescence and transmitted light condensers, filter wheels for illumination and observation light paths, shutters, stages and nosepieces.
Dedicated to Fluorescence
Fluorescence illumination systems and high definition ion coated filters provide the highest signal to noise performance.
Imaging software packages enable archiving, analysis of multi-stained specimens, automated experiments, imaging, high content screening and more.
Making the invisible visible
The new optical system reveals previously unseen detail. A high signal to noise ratio and wide spectral wavelength range deliver superb images with low excitation powers.
