MADE BY ZEISS
Your Microscopes for Increased Efficiency in the Lab
and for More Fun Teaching and Working
Enjoy the convenience for your daily checks, every day. Choose a
sturdy microscope that is easy to use and has a long life. Make the
best of your tuition and work with ZEISS microscope systems.
Use a microscope to investigate cells and body fluids in your laboratory. You prepare,
manipulate, or document human, plant, or animal organisms, often for several hours at a
time. You assess the quantity, type, and characteristics of blood cells. You need convenient
and efficient solutions. You need to easily operate your microscope and expect excellent
optical performance. Does your microscope need to fit into a restricted space?
Enjoy the convenience of ZEISS laboratory microscopes for your daily checks, every day.
These ergonomically designed microscopes are so flexible that they adapt to you and your
working procedures. They speed up your daily routines. And they have an outstanding
price–performance ratio.
For your training courses, you can rely on a sturdy microscope that is easy to use and has a
long life. Teaching involves demonstrating procedures and then jointly considering and discussing the results. You can use the iPad imaging app Labscope to document and analyze
your samples. You can also connect several microscopes to make a digital classroom and
allow your students to simultaneously participate in your observations – on a mobile basis.
ZEISS systems can make your courses a real success both for you and your students.

Select Your System According to Your Requirements.
Whether you use your microscope for training or for your daily laboratory
investigations, your experience and knowledge grow from day to day. Of course,
your microscope has always to perform reliably and should be easy to use.
ZEISS microscopes have been optimized for use in your medical laboratory or
your training department. The systems make it easier for you to efficiently
apply your knowledge and methods on a daily basis.
Stereo Microscopes and Zoom Microscopes
With these microscopes, you can observe your large or living samples nondestructively and
without needing complex preparation. Zooming smoothly, you can adjust the magnification
to your object and analyze its morphology. In the lower overview magnification, you can
screen and sort your samples. Then, with higher magnification, you can effortlessly analyze
details and prepare and manipulate the samples thanks to a large working distance that
enables good access to them.
Page 8
Upright Microscopes
You can detect even the smallest details of your specimen with upright ZEISS microscopes
thanks to their numerous contrasting techniques. Especially in clinical labs, you can
rely on proven, reliable technology when assessing complete blood counts, smear tests,
or sections. Ranging from robust educational microscopes and ergonomically designed
laboratory units up to the most demanding platforms, upright microscopes from ZEISS
enrich your daily work.
Page 20
Inverted Microscopes
With inverted microscopes, you can use the large sample space between the stage and the
illumination for your cells in petri dishes, well plates, or culture flasks. You will have enough
space for your roller bottles and for micromanipulation. And all that together with contrasting techniques such as brightfield, phase contrast and fluorescence, that you need in your
laboratory. Your ZEISS microscope is compact and focuses on the essentials.

Connectivity and Documentation
Document exactly what you see. Fast, easily to access and with brilliant image quality. With
the digital microscope cameras from ZEISS, you have the perfect tool for image acquisition
and documenting your work. To display and edit your images, choose the iPad imaging app
Labscope. Using Labscope, you can connect several microscopes and digitize your classroom
and easily take a look into your students’ work.

The moment you see something
that you have never seen before.
That is the moment we work for.
How will doctors treat their patients in the future? What kind of role will pictures and videos
play in tomorrow’s communications? How much more can semiconductor structures be
miniaturized? These and many other questions are what drives us at ZEISS every day.
As a pioneer and one of the world’s leading corporate groups in the field of optical systems
and optoelectronics, ZEISS has redefined the limits of imagination from the very beginning.
Medical technology products and solutions from ZEISS continue to set new global standards.
Doctors and patients can thus benefit from innovative technologies such as the INTRABEAM™
radiotherapy platform, which provides breast cancer patients with a significantly gentler and
shorter course of treatment.
Whether it’s the razor-sharp image on the cinema screen showing Lord of the Rings, the
most successful film trilogy of all time, or the precise images that binoculars and spotting
scopes provide to nature lovers, ZEISS makes fascinating details visible.
When precision is required, ZEISS industrial measurement solutions guarantee the highest
quality standards. This makes airplanes safer, cars better, and wind turbines – the future of
electrical power – more efficient.
Every second, two people in the world choose ZEISS lenses for their glasses. Relentless drive
and farsightedness are what enables Vision Care to develop innovative eyeglasses such as
MyoVision™, which reduce the worsening of myopia in children.
This unique passion for top performance is what holds all of our business units together, and
