    Equipments Details


    The Carl Zeiss Observer Z1 fluorescence microscope builds on the base features of the Observer Z1 microscope, with an emphasis on advanced fluorescence imaging. Fluorescence microscopy is a key technique in life sciences, enabling researchers to visualize specific cellular structures or molecular interactions using fluorescent dyes and proteins. The Observer Z1 fluorescence microscope is specifically tailored for advanced fluorescence imaging in life science research, aiding in the observation and analysis of cells, tissues, and other biological specimens tagged with fluorescent markers.The microscope is equipped with LED , to excite the the fluorescent dyes in the sample. Filters are used to ensure only specific wavelengths reach the sample.CCD camera is integrated for capturing fluorescent images Applications: -Cell and Molecular Biology: Visualization of cellular structures, protein localization, and cellular processes using fluorescence markers. -Neuroscience: Observing neural connections, synapse activity, or protein localization in neural tissues. -Developmental Biology: Tracing cell lineages or gene expression patterns in developing organisms. -Pharmacology & Drug Discovery: Assessing cellular responses to treatments using fluorescence indicators. Live cell imaging often requires specialized software functions, like time-lapse imaging, Z-stacking for three-dimensional reconstructions, and multi-position imaging. Zeiss software suites cater to these needs, providing tools for acquisition, processing, and analysis of live cell data.
