Setup for Brightfield, Phase Contrast, Fluorescence, Polarization and DIC studies
This Zeiss Axiovert 200M Inverted Microscope is in good working order with all aspects tested and working fully.
Microscope and optics have been professionally cleaned under a class 10,000 clean room hood.
Please see the exact video and photos below.
Testing we performed:
The Zeiss Axiovert 200M Inverted Microscope passed all tests and was found to be fully functional:
Tested LEP motorized XY stage to limits: PASSED
Tested motorized condenser to limits: PASSED
Tested motorized reflective/fluorescence turret to limits: PASSED
Tested all filters and prisms: PASSED
Tested halogen lamp and source: PASSED
Tested mercury lamp and source: PASSED
Tested port splitter: PASSED
Tested all apertures and shutters: PASSED
Tested focal adjustment to limits: PASSED
Tested all shutters: PASSED
Tested live feed connection and quality: PASSED
Tested objectives for clarity: PASSED
Tested eyepieces for clarity: PASSED
During testing this Zeiss Axiovert 200M Inverted Microscope was found to have no issues.
A clear image was produced through the eyepieces as well as through the camera port.
All of the mechanical and motorized components moved freely and the test sample was able to be focused without excessive effort.

This Zeiss Axiovert 200M Inverted Microscope is currently set up for Brightfield viewing with Fluorescence, DIC, Polarization and Phase Contrast studied.
The AmScope CMOS digital color camera is capable of taking detailed digital images and live feed.
The Zeiss Axiovert 200M Inverted Microscope includes a Dell Latitude i5 laptop with AmScope and MicroManager software for remote control of all motorized parts.
This video begins with a full front view of the Zeiss Axiovert 200M Inverted Microscope powered up and running. The camera pans from right to left for a closer look.
Next we see the AmScope software running a live feed of the sample. A demo of the live feed is given by showing control of the focal adjustment.
We then see the MicroManager software that can remotely control the entire system.
Lastly, we see the fluorescence before a final front view of the Zeiss Axiovert 200M Inverted Microscope will end this video.
