IM-3 Series


Inverted microscopes are useful for observing living cells or organisms at the bottom of a large container (e.g., a tissue culture flask) under more natural conditions than on a glass slide, as is the case with a conventional microscope.

IM-3 Series includes a version for simultaneously brightfield and phase contrast method, engineered and designed to be your ideal solution for fast and reliable routine inspections.

The glass stage surface allows an optimal visual access to the objective turret.
A particularly simple and ingenious optical design allows stable alignments and smooth and accurate movements.
