  • Primo Vert Monitor Microscope
Jan 2011
Carl Zeiss Microscopy LLCRequest Info
THORNWOOD, N.Y., Jan. 21, 2011 — A new generation of ergonomic and compact tissue culture microscopes has been launched by Carl Zeiss MicroImaging Inc. The Primo Vert Monitor renders the quick check of living cells faster and easier, replacing traditional eyepieces with an integrated digital camera and an LCD.

The new design offers convenient documentation and high-quality optics. Users can work in a more relaxed position because their heads are no longer fixed to microscope eyepieces, allowing for easy and convenient inspection of living cells whether the operator is sitting or standing. Because the monitor can be tilted from 45° up to 80°, researchers can easily adjust the LCD monitor to their individual postures. Eyeglasses are no longer an obstacle because they don’t have to be removed when checking microscopic images in the LCD monitor.

For documentation and safety purposes, the microscopic images can easily be stored to the SD memory card via the integrated push-to-save camera. This does not require a PC connection, allowing the whole system to work as a stand-alone solution in all laboratories. A computer can be connected to the USB 2.0 port on the stand, and the images can be processed via the Carl Zeiss AxioVision LE software at no additional cost.

High-quality optics provide high-contrast and bright, clear images. Long working distances provide plenty of space for cell culture dishes. There is one universal phase slider (Ph1) for all objectives from 10×, 20× and 40×, so there is no need to change phase positions when switching magnifications.

The monitor is equipped with LED lighting that is characterized by long-life and low-power consumption, saving energy and costs. For easy orientation, objective indicators provide fast identification of magnification, and for convenient working, there is a special skin-friendly material coated on all operating elements and a carrying handle on the back of the scope.

digital camera
A camera that converts a collected image into pixels that are black or white digital or shades of gray. The digital data may then be manipulated to enhance or otherwise modify the resulting viewed image.
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
