The Axioplan 2 imaging research microscope from Carl Zeiss Inc. is optimized for fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and M-FISH examinations in genetics, and for multichannel fluorescence applications with mutants of green fluorescent protein. Eight images can be recorded manually or controlled automatically by computer. A light trap system captures stray light, improving contrast and increasing detection sensitivity. Other features include an eight-position filter turret with an unrestricted field of 25 mm, a push-and-click filter changer and a reflected light fluorescence beam path that improves light transmission.
