The Axiostar plus is a transmitted light microscope for the visualization of fine structures and forms in biology and medicine.
Typical applications of the Axiostar plus include:
- Histology, pathology,
- Doctors’ offices,
- Training (schools and universities),
- Routine laboratory microscopy,
- Immunofluorescence and FISH methods,
- Field use with LED illumination
Thanks to its pyramid design, the Axiostar plus is a compact transmitted-light microscope.
In addition to high-resolution ICS objectives and the major brightfield, darkfield, phase contrast, polarization contrast and epi-fluorescence
