Here is a Zeiss AXIO Observer.Z1 Inverted Fluorescence LED Motorized Phase Contrast Definite Focus Microscope
Setup for Brightfield with Fluorescence and Phase Contrast studies.
This microscope system is optimized for biological studies where enhanced contrasting and extended observation stability is required.
The Lumencor Spectra 7-CLX features (7) switchable LED ranges.
The LEP Motorized Stage has a total travel range of 120 x 85mm. The custom stage insert will accommodate slides, petri dish or wellplates.
The Definite Focus system allows the Z-axis to maintain focus over long periods by auto adjusting the motorized Z-axis position in relation to the sample.
This axis point can be programmed and stored within the base for repeatability.
The total magnification of this system is currently 100x to 400x.
Axio Observer 7, which is practically the same to this model and in similar configuration can reach a cost of $120,000.00
This Zeiss AXIO Observer.Z1 Inverted Fluorescence LED Motorized Phase Contrast Definite Focus Microscope is in good working order with all aspects tested fully.
Microscope optics have been cleaned professionally under a class 10,000 clean room hood.

Here we are showing you our standard packing process
1. All items are different, but they all follow the same principle when packaging.
2. Start with a well-constructed crate
A well-constructed crate would consist of 1/2” to 5/8” Plywood with framing. We generally purchase our crates from a third party who specializes in custom crates.
3. You always want the Instrument to not be directly on the wood deck of the crate. This is done by placing it on foam, inside of the crate. We use 2” 1.7 lb. density foam which works great. It provides cushioning and enough firmness to support the Instrument.
4. The next step is to make sure there is nothing on the deck of the Instrument and the Head/ Arm is secured. In some cases there will be multiple arms to secure but for this example there is only one. The reason for this is so there is no free movement during transit which could cause serious damage to the Instrument.
5. The next step is to make sure your Instrument is covered in either a pallet bag or shrink wrap so no dust or foreign object will get into the crate.
6. The next step is to secure the instrument inside the crate by bracing. We use a method of 2x4’s which have 1” foam shrink wrapped to them so no piece of wood touches the actual instrument.
7. Final step is to photograph everything inside the crate and then seal it with screws.
