Notes on Laser Radiation
Carl Zeiss
The Cell Observer SD relies on a class 3B laser device for operation and is labeled accordingly
(maximum 300 mW of output power). Laser instruments must be operated and handled in
accordance with the regulations concerning health and industrial labor protection. Furthermore,
the operator must observe all provisions of statutory law.
If operated conformingly, the Cell Observer SD does not create any risk of radiation exposure for
operating personnel. The following warning notes must be followed in all cases:
Inform your Laser Protection Officer before you begin with procedures for initial start-up of the
Cell Observer SD.
• Do not expose yourself to the laser beam!
• Do not introduce reflective objects into the beam path!
• Never open shielding or covers at the microscope system while the laser is operating!
• Never look – with or without optical aids – into the laser beam, not even in order to view a
specimen. Non-observance will cause risk of eye damage!
• Cover up unused positions of the lens turret and protect unused camera ports with dust
caps!
• Take appropriate protective measures if laser radiation causes the emergence of harmful
gases, dust and vapor or secondary radiation or explosive matter at the sample.
Keep the laser operating zone clear of flammable and combustible materials.
Additional national laser protection requirements must be duly observed!
Do not remove shielding from the fiber coupling and the joint between the microscope and the
CSU-X1 spinning disc unit.

Installation Instructions
The Cell Observer SD system may only be installed or set-up by Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH
Customer Service technicians or personnel specially authorized by the Manufacturer.
Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH Customer Service will provide such services on a chargeable
basis.
Do not install the Cell Observer SD near heat sources, e.g. radiators or direct sunlight. To avoid
build-ups of heat, the ventilation slits at the microscope system must not be obstructed.
Do not operate the system, including standard-supplied accessories, in an explosive atmosphere, in the presence of such volatile anaesthetics or flammable solvents as alcohol, gasoline
or similar substances.
The main power plug may only be inserted into a socket with PE contact, and its built-in
protection device must not be rendered ineffective by using an extension cable without PE
conductor.
The Cell Observer SD components must be powered via two or three separate line power
cables, not via a common power distribution strip. This is necessary to prevent excessively
strong leakage currents (refer to section 3.1.2 on page 38).
The earth cable which is included in delivery (AWG10 green/yellow) must be used for
connecting the multi laser module to earth-ground. An earth-ground point must be available in
the installation room.
Check that your actual voltage levels correspond to the voltages that are indicated on the
nameplate of the laser module before you connect a line power cable.
For laser safety reasons, all TV outlets at the microscope must be connected to a camera or
sealed with a cap.
Maintenance or repair, including work for modification, removal or replacement of components
other than or in excess of the work scope described in this Operating Manual, as well as any
type of intervention into the inner equipment space may only be performed by technicians of
Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH or persons expressly authorized to handle such work tasks on
behalf of Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH. In particular, this applies to the microscope system,
the CSU-X1 spinning disc unit, the PC system and to cable connections.
Please note that the Cell Observer SD is an opto-electronic precision product. Improper
handling may easily affect its function or even damage the system. All claims for warranty will
be null and void in this case.

When configured with a CSU-X1 spinning disc unit, the Cell Observer SD provides a system to capture
confocal fluorescence pictures in real time. This is achieved with a multi-hole Nipkow scanning disc. A
multi-laser module is used as the light source. Alternatively, a multi-line Ar-laser may be selected.
One or two CCD cameras perform real-time image capturing.
The spinning disc unit should only be operated when combined with an Axio Observer.Z1 microscope
stand.
Human blood and tissue samples may be examined.
The laser modules (refer to configuration options, section 2.4 on page 30) may not be operated
on the Cell Observer SD, unless combined with a basic safety kit for Z1 "Axio Observer"
microscope stand (432927-9010-000).
Use the Cell Observer SD only with laser class 3B laser modules up to 300 mW of output
power.
Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH cannot warrant the proper function of microscope system
components or the compliance with laser system safety requirements if lasers of a higher power
rating are selected.

INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION
Functional Principle
Carl Zeiss
Functional Principle
The confocal CSU-X1 spinning disc unit scans
hundreds of image points simultaneously.
Compared to conventional spot scanners, distinctly
higher image rates can thus be achieved. For
detection of fluorescence, EM CCD cameras of
high quantum efficiency can be used, which
reduces the level of illumination intensity and
phototoxicity to a required minimum.
A CSU-X1 confocal scanner includes a so-called
Nipkow rotating disc with thousands of pinholes
arranged in a spiral-like pattern. By illumination
and through-disc detection, just as many image
points can be imaged concurrently. Because the
disc rotates, the sample surface is completely
scanned a bit at a time. After rotation of 30°, the
entire visual field of the camera has been fully
imaged once.
Since a large amount of incident light would be
blocked by the areas between the pinholes, the
Fig. 2-1
Schematic view of CSU-X1 spinning
scanning disc unit is equipped with a special
disc unit
tandem disc setup. The Nipkow disc acts in unison
with a preceding second mechanically coupled
disc. It contains micro lenses to exactly focus and direct the incident bundle of excitation light through
the subsequent pinholes for increased light efficiency.
For optimal adaptation to the various operating requirements, the CSU-X1 scanning disc unit is available
at different configuration levels.
Spin speed:
Depending on the dynamics of an application, the Nipkow disc’s spin speed may vary. Available options
are:
−
a fixed rotation speed of 1800 rpm,
−
variable speed settings from 1500 to 5000 rpm
Filter wheels:
Fast optional filter wheels reduce emission filter switch times to as little as 33 ms (purely mechanical
switching time) between neighbouring positions. Combined with AOTF-based selection of a desired
excitation wavelength, this facilitates express multi-channel experiments.
Dual camera operation:
The dual camera option provides two cameras for concurrent image acquisition in two different emission
ranges. This prevents a time offset between a pair of channels and helps avoid inaccuracies during colocalization or ratio calculation tasks.

Safety Kit for Customer-Provided Laser Module
The safety kit for Customer-provided laser modules consists of a safety shutter for the laser module (laser
shutter) and a connecting cable. Fig. 2-9 shows the components of a safety kit for Laser-TIRF
If you intend to use a self-provided laser module, place the safety shutter directly at the exit aperture of
the laser beam between the coupling unit and the laser aperture before the first start-up. Plug the
connector of the laser shutter (Fig. 2-9/2) into the converter board. Then connect the board to the
distribution box for laser safety using the connection cable (Fig. 2-9/3). The laser beam must be
completely blocked by the shutter blade (Fig. 2-9/1) in its lower (de-energized) position.

Suitability of Objectives for the Use
Carl Zeiss
Suitability of Objectives for the Use
The functional principle described in section 2.2 imposes certain requirements for selection of objectives.
The pinhole diameter is 50 µm, a pair of neighbouring pinholes are located at a distance of 250 µm from
each other. The pinhole diameter is optimized for strongly magnifying objective lenses with a high
numerical aperture (100x / 1.4 or similar).
Using the CSU-X1 with weakly magnifying objectives will result in specimen sections with a thickness by
far greater than 1 AU (Airy Unit).
2.6
Suitability of Optical Fibers for Use in Cell Observer SD
For this application, the optical fiber cable is factory-shipped as an integral part of the spinning disc unit.
The total laser power which is injected into the fiber cable must not exceed a value of 100 mW!

• Connect:Connection the 25-pole sub-D connector (Fig. 3-9/5) of the distribution box for laser safety
(Fig. 3-9/6) to the safety jack on the rear of the stand.
• To connect the sub-D connectors to the four 15-pole Sub-D jacks at the distribution box for laser
safety signals (Fig. 3-9/6), proceed as follows:
−
laser protection cover/incubator or interlock connector → Type B jack (Fig. 3-9/1),
−
multi laser module → Type B jack (Fig. 3-9/2),
−
TIRF slider or interlock connector → Type A jack (Fig. 3-9/4).
• Jumpers must be installed onto unused jack terminals of the safety distribution box. This is necessary
for the laser shutter (inside the laser module) to be able to open.
• For operation with your own laser, the laser shutter of the TIRF laser safety kit for Customer-provided
laser modules (432921-0000-000) must be mounted in such a position that it will block the laser
beam when in closed state. Connect the laser shutter with the distribution box via the converter board
(included), using the connection cable (Fig. 3-9/6; refer to section 2.3.7 on page 29).
Laser safety can only be warranted if the laser shutter is correctly placed in front of the selected
laser’s outlet opening and connections were made in a conforming manner.

Coupling a Customer-Provided Laser to the Cell Observer SD System
Customers using their own lasers will be solely responsible for overall laser safety of the Cell
Observer SD system. They shall also check for further required laser safety precautions and
validity of all laser warning labels affixed to the system, including the microscope.
The Manufacturer will refuse liability for modifications performed on the Cell Observer SD
system.
To operate the system with a total laser power > 300 mW, further laser safety precautions will
be required for the microscope.
Where lasers with a total laser power > 300 mW or other wavelengths are used, the Cell
Observer SD protection system must be reviewed for protective effect.
Notify your Laser Safety Officer before proceeding with the initial system start-up.
Valid national laser protection requirements must be met.
Note: This work step is only required for integration of a Customer laser. A special optical fiber cable is
necessary for coupling a laser to the Cell Observer SD system (refer to section 2.6 on page 31). If you
intend to mount your own laser, you should consult the related manufacturer manual for details and
instructions regarding installation and alignment of the coupling device in front of the laser.
For operation with your own laser, the laser shutter for the laser module must always be
mounted in a position between the coupling device and the laser outlet. The laser beam must
be completely blocked by the shutter flag when in lower (de-energized) position.
Switch the laser off before mounting the optical fiber!
