Zeiss Axio
Axio Imager A1
Phase Contrast
Upgradable to Fluorescence
Brand New Microscope

USD $10,000

MODEL: Zeiss Axio
Shipping Cost: To be determined


Here is your chance to save a bundle! Why pay more? This phase contrast microscope is brand new and never used. It was originally destined for a laboratory but the project failed before the equipment could be used. If your application is for a high-end, top of the line brightfield and phase contrast system, this is your opportunity to save big. If you need a fluorescent system, then this is the starting point you need. We have reviewed all the equipment with a Zeiss dealer and have developed the costing for the fluorescence upgrade kit.
