With the Axio Scope.A1, Carl Zeiss provides a flexible, high-performance modular microscope platform specially designed for routine applications in materials microscopy. New instrument solutions and the high-quality EC Epiplan line of objectives will meet the demands of users faced with specific routine tasks in materialography. This new generation of microscopes has been tailored to the requirements of quality inspection, damage analysis and production inspection.
The extreme flexibility of the microscope is achieved with five upper parts, three lower parts and two Vario columns which can be selected for the respective requirements and combined into an optimally customized system. The Axio Scope A.1 offers exceptionally large scalability of the sample area, which can be continuously set for sample sizes up to 380 mm for numerous applications, depending on the configuration. 2-position sliders, 4-position and 6-position reflector turrets are available as reflector modules, depending on the application. In any case, it is possible to quickly and easily switch between the different contrasting techniques.
In addition to traditional contrasting techniques in reflected and transmitted light such as brightfield, darkfield, DIC and polarization, Axio Scope.A1 now also enables innovative techniques such as C-DIC and PlasDIC. The line of high-contrast EC Epiplan objectives was specially developed for routine applications. They produce a flat image for a 23 mm field and are available in brightfield and brightfield/darkfield versions. As they are produced with low strain, they are ideal for high-quality DIC microscopy. This line of objectives enables the innovative C-DIC technique (Differential Interference Contrast in circularly polarized light) with only a single prism. Furthermore, the entire spectrum of objectives from Carl Zeiss is available.
Thanks to the modular design of the Axio Scope.A1, many components can be easily retrofitted by the customer, if required. ZEISS microscope cameras such as the AxioCam ICc1 or ICc3 and AxioVision software supplement the microscope. The Axio Scope.A1 from Carl Zeiss was introduced at the Control show in Stuttgart from April 22 – 24, 2008.
