Easy to work with
Efficient and comfortable observation
LED light sources and built-in Diascopic/Epi-fluorescence
illumination systems reduce setup time and allow users to concentrate
on their research.
New streamlined operation
Control buttons on the Ts2 microscope are intuitively located for a
streamlined workflow. Commonly used controls such as the on/off
and diascopic/epi-fluorescence switching buttons are located at the
front panel for easy reach. Buttons pertaining to either diascopic or
epi-fluorescence control are zoned to the left and right sides of the
microscope body, respectively, to eliminate confusion and improve
workflow efficiency.

Faster, brighter images with LED illumination
LED light source is alignmentfree resulting in faster setup
and consistent results. LEDs
also eliminate frequent bulb
replacements, saving the user
time and money. Moreover, The
new Contrast Shield (optional)
provides high signal-to-noise
fluorescence observation even in
brightly lit culture rooms.
Easy-to-use Mechanical Stage
The high performance
mechanical stage (optional) can
accommodate a wide range of
flasks and cell culture chambers.
The new stage design also
directly accommodates micro
plates. In addition, the sample
holder is easily removed to
accommodate large flasks.
— Simple to Use & Compact
Compact, streamlined body for efficient observation
LED-based high-quality diascopic and epi-fluorescence observation
Two models are available to meet your needs: a diascopic illumination model, the Ts2, and an epifluorescence illumination model, the Ts2-FL. High-intensity LED sources are employed for both diascopic
and epi-fluorescence illumination.
The built-in fly-eye lens ensures
uniform brightness across the
entire field of view. A wide range
of wavelengths is available to
choose from for Epi-fluorescence
LED illumination.

Compact and highly stable body
Illumination modules including the epi-fluorescence
light source have been seamlessly incorporated into the
microscope main body, resulting in a compact and simple
design form that's also durable. The compact structure
is also vibration-resistant to provide highly stable sample
observations.
The camera port is located on the side of the microscope to
provide unimpeded viewing of the stage even when placed
inside a culture hood.

Highly optical performance with diascopic observation
Diascopic observation with high-intensity LED (Eco-illumination)
Eco-illumination provides high-intensity light suitable for phase contrast observation. With the built-in fly-eye lens, uniform brightness is provided across
the entire field of view. LEDs are an environmentally friendly, low-power-consumption light source. Eco-illumination provides a long lifetime of 60,000
hours and reduces the frequency of lamp replacement.
Phase contrast observation
Apodized Phase Contrast (APC) observation
Phase contrast is an optical contrasting technique that typically utilizes a
phase contrast objective lens and condenser annulus. The use of a highintensity LED light source results in clear images even at high magnifications.
APC observation is a type of
phase contrast microscopy which
minimizes unwanted halos in
thick specimens. For example,
APC technique
provides clearer
details of thick
samples such as
dividing cells.

New contrasting technique, "Emboss Contrast"
Emboss Contrast is a cost-effective optical technique which does not require
costly optics. Utilizing just a bright-field objective lens and two contrast sliders,
Emboss Contrast provides pseudo-three dimensional and glare-free images
for thick specimens such as iPS cells which would normally suffer from halos
with conventional phase contrast methods. Additionally, Emboss Contrast is
compatible with both glass and plastic culture chambers, making it a very
versatile observation technique.

Epi-fluorescence observation made easy with LED
Fly-eye lens for uniform illumination
With a built-in fly-eye lens, uniform brightness is provided across the entire field of view.
Accurately reproduce illumination power every time
The Ts2 can be configured with up to three fluorescent filter cubes. The
illumination power previously defined by the user is replicated when the
same wavelength is used again, thus eliminating the need for manual
adjustment of light intensity when switching between wavelengths. The
Ts2 also incorporates a noise terminator mechanism which allows high
signal-to-noise fluorescent images to be captured.
High S/N epi-florescence observation in bright rooms
The new Contrast Shield accessory (optional) blocks room light,
providing an easy and cost-effective method for achieving high signalto-noise fluorescence observation in a brightly lit culture room.

Camera Port
Thermo Plate TPX (for the Mechanical Stage)
Optional camera port
is available for image
capturing. Digital Cameras
utilizing C- or F-mounts can
be attached.
Thermo plate TPX provides accurate and stable temperature control for
the specimen from room temperature to 50 degrees Celsius. Proprietary
treatment methods ensure that the glass surface of the Termo Plate is
breakage-free.
Manufacturer: TOKAI HIT Co., Ltd.
Emboss Contrast Slider
Both condenser-side slider and eyepiece-tube-side slider are
available. Contrast modules for 10x, 20x, 40x objective lenses are
arranged on the same slider so switching between magnifications is
easily achieved by simply sliding the contrast slider.
Cameras for microscopy Digital Sight Series
Cameras utilizing either PC-based control or standalone, touch-screen control
units are available for use with the Ts2.
*The optional camera port is required to attach the digital camera to the microscope.
Please see the Digital Sight Series catalogue for more information and other products in
the series.
