Carl Zeiss Microscopy’s picture

By: Carl Zeiss Microscopy

(Carl Zeiss MicroImaging Inc.: Thornwood, NY) -- The Primo Star iLED microscope now available with three additional fluorescence attachments that allow users to work with different dyes such as FITC, Dapi, and Rhodamine/Cy 3. This permits the use of the LED-based microscope for single fluorescence applications in training, routine procedures, and basic research. It is particularly robust and easy to use, and features an outstanding price-performance ratio, to which the long-lasting, inexpensive and energy-saving LED light source makes a valuable contribution.
