It’s About Brilliance. Because Only the Best Is Good Enough.

For the first time, Axio Zoom.V16 combines a 16x zoom with a high numerical aperture of NA 0.25, moving to the forefront of all known stereo and zoom microscopes.

It achieves a very high aperture in the medium zoom range already: You get superior brightness in large object fields.

Master Routine Screening As Well As Your Most Demanding Applications

With the Plan-NEOFLUAR Z 2.3x objective, your Axio Zoom V.16 can achieve a numerical aperture of NA 0.5 in an object field of 1.5 millimeters. Use ApoTome.2 for fluorescence imaging to obtain optical sections. You get a system that masters routine screening as well as your most demanding multidimensional imaging applications – Axio Zoom.V16 does it all brilliantly.

Optimized Zoom for a Variety of Purposes
The eZoom of Axio Zoom.V16 works with a motorized iris diaphragm coupled to the zoom. Simply select Brightness mode, Eyepiece mode or Camera mode by pressing a button on the SYCOP 3.

Intelligent Transmitted Light Over the Whole Zoom Range
In addition to brightfield, darkfield and oblique illumination, you can get an increased contrast brightfield at the touch of a button. With the Best Mode button, Axio Zoom.V16 determines the actual optical state and optimizes transmitted light automatically. Simply save your setting and reload it for your next experiment – once again, at the touch of a button.

New Dimensions in Operating Comfort

Carl Zeiss is expanding the borders of stereomicroscopy with increase depth of field, excellent color reproduction, high-contrast images and significantly more image information

New patented optics provide improved resolution and contrast. The innovative operating concept SyCoP (Systems Control Panel) combines all essential functions of a stereomicroscope in a single handy operating unit. The sum of these advantages result in increased comfort and efficiency in the laboratory. With impressive stability and exceptionally large specimen room.





Are you engaged in demanding projects in biological or medical research, or in material analysis? If so, you will be interested in a new index of performance in stereomicroscopy: SteREO Discovery.V20.

This innovative product from the pioneer of the CMO (common main objective) design principle blazes a new trail for the future of CMO stereomicroscopes.

The new performance level of the SteREO Discovery.V20 is based on new design features and technologies. More than 30 patents and patent applications guarantee that we will maintain that lead.

SteREO Discovery.V20 at a glance:

Plane-field apochromatic correction of the zoom optics, with a 20:1 zoom range
High total magnification up to 345x with 10x eyepieces
Highly accurate reproducibility of the magnification (>99%)

Maximum resolving power of up to 1000 LP/mm with PlanApo S 2.3x objective

Excellent impression of space at high magnifications

Ergonomic, reliable and reproducible operation and control

Seamless integration into the modular system of SteREO microscopes.

The New Fluorescence
High-resolution three-dimensional images in the largest specimen field in its class. First-class optics through the new objective NeoLumar S for bright, fluorescence rich in contrast. Complete motorization and an innovative operating concept. With SteREO Lumar.V12 Carl Zeiss is expanding the boundaries of conventional stereomicroscopy.

Identifying Much More

SteReo Lumar.V12 is the first and only stereomicrsocope with fluorescence imaging of light the microscope quality.

Revolutionary Operating Concept

Specially designed for stereomicroscopy, SyCoP (System Control Panel) combines joystick, buttons and touch screen in the convenient design of a computer mouse, enabling easy handling of increasingly complex operations.

Stand for Highest Demands

As the optical performance of modern stereomicroscopes grows, so do the technical demands on the mechanics of such systems.

Entry into the Class of Sophisticated Stereomicroscopes

Compared with conventional entry level models the high-performance optics impresses with
enhanced resolution
enhanced resolution
a perceptibly improved stereoscopic impression.

As a result, it offers an image brilliance that is without equal in this class of instrument. Benefit from a visible increase in information in all biomedical and industrial applications and experience a new view.

SteREO Discovery.V8 at a glance:
Optimized optics design for visibly more image information
Supreme ease of operation and ergonomic viewing posture

Zoom range of 8 : 1

Manual focusing drive with adjustable click stops

Manual and motorized stands with high stability

Generous specimen space

Sturdy stage plate

Illumination and contrast methods based on cold light or LED

The innovative advances incorporated in this microscope are obvious not only in the color of the instruments and their compact, original design, but also, and most particularly, in their attractive price - all the result of state-of-the-art production technologies. Sturdy, hard-wearing technology, the very easy operation of all major function controls and no compromises whatsover in image definition and brilliance - that is the best way to describe this stereomicroscope from Carl Zeiss. In addition to the four basic models, optionally with a zoom system or adjustable fixed magnifications, the compact Stand C and selected accessories (e.g. image documentation, darkfield, and many more) are other outstanding features.

The patented zoom system of the Stemi DV4 (Double Lens Vario, zoom factor 4) guarantees high-resolution, brilliant images from overview (8x) to detail (32x). An exceptional feature in this price category: The image remains precisely in focus over the entire zoom range. The Stemi DV4 SPOT fiber-optic, cold-light illuminator additionally integrated into the microscope body ensures a fully illuminated object field at all times.

The Stereomicroscope Stemi 2000 meets your demands in two respects.

On the one hand it offers the low-price advantage common with Greenough-type instruments, on the other hand it features a performance that will surely surprise you:

Ideal 3-D image
The optical system of the Stemi 2000 images your specimens exactly true to nature: Brilliantly sharp, absolutely free of disortions and - even at low powers - at very high resolving power.

Fantastic zoom factor of 7
Interested in minute details? The extremely wide 7.7:1 zoom range (pancratic system 0.65x...5.0x) zooms them in as hardly any other stereomicroscope of this class can do.Continuously or with click stop. Exclusively by Zeiss.

Extremely long working distance of up to 286 mm

The Stemi 2000 provides ample space for illumination and manipulation. Usefully graded interchangeable optics ensure necessary freedom of movement and ideal overview.
Working distances of 92 mm, 130 mm, 210 mm or 286 mm are possible. The magnification ranges from 1.95x to 225x.

Wide field: 118 mm at a glance

With the Stemi 2000 you can even view a compact disc as a whole. Its 0.3x attachment lens system permits object fields of up to 118 mm to be viewed. The basic outfit provides an object field size of 35 mm.
