Microscope overview

The Zeiss Lumar V12 is a fluorescence stereo microscope suitable for high resolution 3D analysis of large specimens in fluorescent and transmitted light. The system is equipped with fluorescence filters for GFP, Cy3 and Cy5.5 and a sensitive cooled CCD camera (Hamamatsu ORCA-R2) that allows you to capture weak fluorescent signals and minimize photobleaching in light sensitive samples. With the Zeiss Lumar V12 you can perform multi-channel, Z-stack and time-lapse image acquisition of your samples, using two different objectives with different working distances and magnification values. If you need higher magnifications, check out the Leica DM5000B, the Zeiss Axiovert 200M or the Zeiss Cell Observer widefield microscopes.

Data files older than 3 months will be automatically deleted on this system, please copy your data to the iMM server using the desktop link.
