Keyence BZ-9000 Fluorescence Microscope (Live Cell)

Featuring all-in-one box, this fully motorized microscope allows for imaging of high quality with BF, phase contrast, and fluorescence modes.

A Tokai Hit temperature and CO2 gas controller allows live-cell imaging. The system greatly reduces time spent on learning operations and adjustments with the microscope. Its software package includes image stitching, z-stack, multi-color/multi-points time-lapse, movie recording, time-series brightness measurement function, hybrid cell count and macro cell count functions. Real-time 3D module will become very easy with it.
