Our other large Zeiss epifluorescent microscope is the Zeiss Axiophot. In addition to fluorescence microscopy, this microscope is also used for phase contrast and differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy. Though it is an older scope, it was recently outfitted with a modern digital Zeiss AxioCam MR camera and utilizes the same Zen software as the new Axio Imager 2. Phase contrast and DIC microscopy allow for observation of unstained, live cells and structures. For fluorescent microscopy, this microscope utilizes a Zeiss XBO 75 (75W xenon arc lamp) and HBO 100 (100W mercury arc lamp).
