Highlights of Axioscope

Affordable High Performance

Axioscope – with its outstanding usability and advanced automation features – is ideal for demanding routine tasks. And, even at its attractive price, it also offers powerful capabilities commonly associated with more advanced research light microscopes.

Reliable Results

With coded components and advanced light management, Axioscope delivers trustworthy, reproducible results. Moreover, the motorized Axioscope 7 gives you the ability to fully automate investigative workflows – so it is quick to become the lab favorite.

Digital Integration

With the Axiocam camera portfolio and ZEN 2 core imaging software, Axioscope becomes a powerful digital documentation system. From device control – to image capture, analysis and documentation – to archiving your analytics, Axioscope delivers a fully digitized workflow.

Easy to Use for Powerful Workflow Efficiencies

Ergonomic Operating Concept
Axioscope is designed to make everyday operations as comfortable and safe as possible. Important controls – like focus drive, stage drive, light manager and image capture – are arranged on both sides such that they can be operated without overworking either hand.

Easy Image Acquisition
Using the snap button, digital image acquisition is easy. Simply press this ergonomically located button, and you can acquire images while maintaining control over position, magnification or contrast. In this way, the microscopic examination can be

fully documented, while you always keep the sample in view.

Perfect Control of All Stage Axes

The innovative operating concept of Axioscope 7, the motorized product version, gives you full control over all stage movement, without having to take your hands off the microscope or relying on external controllers. With the simple press of a button, you can switch the focus drives between Z-axis control and XY stage control. With the XY control activated, you can move the stage along the X axis with the right focus drive and along the Y axis with the left focus drive.
