-The Zeiss Cell Observer is a fully motorized inverted //widefield fluorescence microscope//​ ideal for live-cell imaging applications. It is equipped with a large cage incubator and a small stage incubator for temperature control and CO2 supply and with Definite Focus for hardware focus control during long time-lapse acquisitions. Using the ZEN 2 software you can control the motorized filters, shutters and stage to simultaneously set up multi-color time-lapse imaging experiments in multiple stage positions. Its sensitive cooled Axiocam 506m camera allows you to capture weak fluorescent signals and minimize photobleaching/​photodamage in light sensitive samples. You can also perform Z-stack acquisition and use [[https://​huygens.i3s.up.pt/​login.php|PPBI Huygens RM]] [[http://​micro.magnet.fsu.edu/​primer/​digitalimaging/​deconvolution/​deconvolutionhome.html|deconvolution]] server to significantly improve image resolution even in thick samples. If don't want to use deconvolution,​ check out one of the confocal systems such as the point scanners [[zeiss_lsm_710|Zeiss LSM 710]] and [[zeiss_lsm_880|Zeiss LSM 880]] or spinning disks [[3i_marianas_sdc|3i Marianas SDC]] and [[zeiss_cell_observer_sd|Zeiss Cell Observer SD]]. If your personal computer cannot handle all the data you collected, check out the [[big_guy|Big Guy]] or [[colossus|Colossus]]. If you have FISH or other fixed fluorescence slides try the [[leica_dm5000b|Leica DM5000B]] instead.+{{  :​widefield_lightpath.png?​0x300}}The Zeiss Cell Observer is a fully motorized inverted //widefield fluorescence microscope//​ ideal for live-cell imaging applications.
