The CleverScope offers the option of removing the substage optics and motors, allowing you to reduce the microscope to a reflected light microscopy system. This option is popular amongst neuroscientists who work on samples where transmitted light is not an option, e.g. in vivo experiments on larger animals.
The in vivo CleverScope retains all the stability and accuracy of the CleverScope. In fact, you can replace the substage optics with the turn of a couple of screws. Making this the utility scope for those that need to share the same set up for in vivo and in vitro experiments.
An in vivo CleverScope could be the ideal solution for your lab if:
- Space is an issue – Removing the substage optics adds more space for in vivo experiments, allowing easy access for stereotaxic frames and other bulky configurations. The
CleverStageoffers complimentary design features which are often the ideal complement to an in vivo setup where clever ergonomics and stability is essential.
- You need cost-effectiveness – reducing the microscope to the pillar with
motorisedarm for only the objective (compared to the complete setup with substage optics, motorisedarm for condenser and objective) saves on the total cost of the system, without reducing the stability and precision of the objective focus
- You want to future proof your research – You can add the condenser-focus arm and substage optics at a later stage, when your experimental requirements change or when your budget allows. Switching between the in vivo and regular configurations
takesonly minutes, which adds another level of flexibility and versatility to the setup.
