An ergonomic and compact tissue culture microscope has been launched by Carl Zeiss MicroImaging Inc. The Primo Vert Monitor renders the quick check of living cells 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. The monitor can be tilted from 45° up to 80°, enabling researchers to adjust the LCD monitor to their individual postures. Eyeglasses don’t have to be removed. For documentation and safety purposes, the microscopic images can be stored on the SD memory card via the integrated push-to-save camera, a step that does not require a PC connection.
