Inverse microscopes

An inverted microscope is a microscope with its light source and condenser on the top, above the stage pointing down, while the objectives and turret are below the stage pointing up. The microscope is 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. Can also be used in micromanipulation applications where space above the specimen is required for manipulator mechanisms and the microtools they hold. The microscope is fitted with camera and fluorescence illumination.

Microscope: Olympus IX70 m/kamera Fluorescens illumination: EXFO X-Cite Series 120
