A fluorescence microscope from Zeiss to characterize fluorescent markers is at hand as well as a polarization microscope from Olympus. Temperature dependent measurements can be realized using a Linkam stage.


The fluorescence device is a state-of-the-art microscope from Zeiss. Besides standard microscope modes, one main use is characterization of fluorescent markers or spots in microfluidic chips. The microscope has an automated xyz-stage to obtain large area images or images with varying focus planes. Additionally standard white light microscopic tasks such as brightfield and darkfield imaging are possible. The polarization microscope work in transmission or reflection mode. State of the are filters and magnifications are at hand. Temperature dependent measurements can be provide by a standard Linkam Stage.
