The ZeissAxiostar Plus microscope is a development model improving on the previous model known as the Axiostar.
This is a well made microscope with quality finishing. It's ideal for extensive use in the laboratory, education and inbioresearch. It is easily transportable so also beneficial for out in the field.
Its price tag is surprisingly low! The Axiostar Plus has excellentperformance both optically and mechanically.It's a light-weight microscope with top of the line optics and upgrade options available in order to keep up with continuous developments in modern microscopy.
The fact that the Axiostar Plus is a smaller upright microscope from Carl Zeiss does not disappoint as it comes equipped with features that end users usually only enjoy in higher performance lines.
Inexperienced usersbenefit from its sturdiness and the more experienced rely on its sound ergonomics as well as itsflexibility.
Zeiss provides upgrades for a variety of imaging techniques even for advanced fluorescence microscopy. At this point though, you can pay for what you currently need.
Along with its optional photo head, this microscope offers stability which is particularly useful for photomicrography provided, of course, that you purchase the right camera equipment.
The Zeiss Axiostar Plus microscope comes in a medium-sized pyramid design offering high stability.
Carl Zeiss is still known for its attention to ergonomics and this is not ignored in the Axiostar plus even though it is a smaller instrument.
Its use for routine applications maintainscomfort as an important consideration. The Ergo base plate allows for four different viewing angles and viewing heights. Therefore each user finds a comfortable viewing angleeven when using over extended periods of time.
When considering ergonomics, other important components like the tubes with a 30 degree viewing angle and adjustable stage with soft touch controls also gear towards user comfort.
The Zeiss Axiostar Plus has "soft touch" controls on both sides of the stand as opposed to hard plastic as on previous models.
Like theAxiostar, this microscope has low coaxial coarse and fine focus so enables your hand to rest on the table/lab bench which helps to eliminate fatigue and is comfortable for right or left handed users.
It has a self adjusting, maintenance free planetary gear drive with positive end stops.
As previously mentioned, the Axiostar Plus' optics offer great clarity as they are built around an Infinity Color-Corrected Optics system (ICS) where the objectives and binocular tube form a color-corrected primary image with no need for additional correction.
This can set you up forbasic brightfield imaging, all the way to epi-fluorescence and any upgrade/module in between.
The brightfield package offers a binocular phototube, 30°/45°, 20,100/100; 10X/20mm E-PL eyepieces, 1 fixed, 1 focusable;interpupilary distance adjustable and correctable as well as eyepiece height. Fine for spectacle wearers.
Nosepiece: positive click stops with rotations to fouror fivepositions - precision ball-bearing mechanism.
