German Technical Inspection Authority (TUV) approved user friendly ergonomics ensure maximum comfort during operation and reduce the risk of muscular disorders in neck and shoulders even over a prolonged stretch of time. A 50W HAL lamp is integrated in the stand, with its high light efficiency providing homogeneous illumination. An energy saving LED alternative is available.
The system provides flexibility in selecting and switching between various contrasting methods, catering for a wide spectrum of applications. The 5x revolving nosepiece for bright and darkfield keeps all relevant objectives handy. A 4 position reflector turret with push&click contrast modules creates flexibility in selecting and switching between contrast methods. Note that Axio Lab.A1 is available with differential interference contrast (C-DIC), a technique that delivers excellent contrast in phase objects and other samples poor in intensity contrast.
A comprehensive range of components is available for Axio Lab.A1 in order to configure the system for your application in metallography and general material lab microscopy.

Every Axio Scope microscope is custom configured to suit your applications, catering for everything from simple to more complex tasks. Future upgrades are straightforward and the ergonomic design supports a healthy working position.
This compound microscope system can be equipped with a wide range of objectives, ranging from economical to sophisticated. An achromatically corrected reflected light beam path minimizes stray light and results in exceptionally bright and crisp images. The microscope features a 6 position objective nosepiece and illumination sources depending on your requirements – both halogen illumination and LED are available. Axio Scope is designed to exhibit low susceptibility to vibrations and provides exceptional stability.
The optical system of Axio Scope has been tailored to the requirements of material analysis as for example materialography or failure analysis. The variety of techniques available is unique in this performance class and includes all relevant contrast methods such as brightfield and darkfield, fluorescence and DIC, as well as the unique C-DIC (circular DIC), a polarization technique perfect for contrasting oriented structures.

Axio Vert.A1 is a compact, inverted microscope that brings you big insights into your objectives. You examine large, heavy samples, using all the latest contrast methods without compromise. Or you might decide instead to increase your insights by combining several contrast methods. Contrast Methods for All Details At a single stroke you switch between brightfield, darkfield, DIC, C-DIC, fluorescence and polarization contrast in reflected light. In transmitted light, use brightfield, polarization and phase contrast. Fast Imaging with a Wide Range of Objectives You will be using a 5x encoded nosepiece turret as well as a light manager to capture light intensity and objective exchange automatically. That means you quantify your structure efficiently, evaluate the properties and quality of your materials, and then take appropriate measures. Reproducible Measuring and Comparing With 23 field of view you understand most of your sample from first sight. Having grain-measuring reticles equips you very well for instant measurements. You also have AxioVision Software by Carl Zeiss for a powerful range of modules such as grain size, phase analysis, layer thickness and interactive measurement for your investigations.

|Configuration||Axio Vert.A1 with 5 position H-D, DIC nosepiece (encoded)|
Choose between three stand versions of this robust inverted system – from economical entry level to top-end performance, including complete motorization. The entry-level model will ensure excellent imaging results, while the next level additionally offers coded and motorized components. Finally, the fully motorized stand expands the performance capability by motorized focusing (z-control) and automatic component recognition.
Furthermore, the motorized Axio Observer stand features a novel operating concept. Use the touchscreen for convenient input and monitoring, operating the entire microscope via the TFT display with its concise, clearly organized menu structure. Assign the pushbuttons to suit your requirements and create your personalized user settings. Run even complex workflows from your TFT touchscreen.
The beam path optics with apochromatic correction give your images an unprecedented uniform brilliance. Axio Observer offers all relevant methods in transmitted and reflected light: brightfield, darkfield, polarisation and fluorescence in reflected light, as well as innovative contrast methods such as C-DIC (circular DIC), a polarization technique perfect for contrasting oriented structures.
AxioVision, the sophisticated image acquisition and analysis software, offers numerous modules for material microscopy, including for example TIC (total interference contrast), which enables accurate height and thickness measurements of object structures.
