Keyence Microscope

Keyence Microscope

Keyence BX-Z 710 is a Fluorescence Microscope that supports brightfield, phase contrast, oblique illumination, and fluorescence observation all within a single compact unit. The system can can automatically scan an entire slide or well and quickly stitch together an overall image.

Automatically maps out the viewing area for slides, dishes, and multi-well plates for easy navigation. All operations are easily controlled through the mouse by simply clicking the area on the map.

Located in the Bassine Science building  room 109.
