Based around a Zeiss inverted Axiovert 200M microscope base, this microscope has the following features:

  • Lenses: 10X/0.3 Ph1, 20X/0.5 Ph2, 40X/1.3 Oil, 63X/1.4 Oil, 100X/1.3 Oil
  • 20, 40, 63, 100 lenses are all configured with DIC optics
  • Fluorescence Filtersets: (visit the zeiss filter set database)
    • for DAPI (365/12 excitation, 395 Dichroic, 397 nm Longpass emission)
    • for AlexaFluor488 (470/40 excitation, 510 dichroic, 540/50 emission) (Also works for other common Green dyes, e.g. FITC, GFP)
    • for Rhodamine (546/12 excitation, 560 dichroic, 608/65 emission) (Also works for other common Red dyes, e.g. Cy3, TRITC, DsRed)
    • for Cy5 (640/30 excitation, 660 dichroic, 690/50 emission) (Also for AlexaFluor 633 or AlexaFluor 647)
  • Axiocam MRm (1388 X 1040 ) on the left side port for b/w & fluorescence imaging.
  • Powershot A620 on the right side port for colour imaging (i.e. transmitted light histological staining)
  • EXFO excite 120 fluorescence illumination
