As GFP - Imaging, Zeiss Axio Observer.Z1 is equipped with several imaging modes brightfield, phase-contrast, differential-interference contrast (or Nomarski), epi-fluorescence image acquisition with Hamamatsu 9100 - 02 EM CCD Camera.

Volocity Acquisition software is designed for easy image capture. Use the Light Path Manager to group together multiple hardware settings, such as a camera exposure, shutters controls and filter wheels positions so that you can quickly and accurately move between hardware configurations and save your protocols for future use so that experiments which you repeat regularly will be identical every time.

With Volocity Visualization and Volocity Quantitation link per in off-line workstations you can also provide to rapid, interactive, high resolution image rendering of your 2D, 3D and 4D data sets in order to achieve the best results from your data and to analyze structure and function in 3D and 4D image data. Objects can be also identified, measured and tracked in 2D, 3D and 4D.
