The new upright micrscope from Luigs & Neumann
LNscope with incredible flexibility that fits your demands

The LNscope can be adapted to any existing application due to its flexible design. Due to the modular design various optics from different brands can be integrated.
The modular system allows you to adapt to any kind of experimental setting. Like Jet Ball, LNtreadmill or InVitro applications.

Special features for the LNscopes

The LN-microscopes contains of the following features:
· Superior optical imaging properties by using original microscope components
· Upgrade and retrofit of accessories from Olympus for the upright microscope BX51WI
· Suitable for microscopy tasks like bright field, imaging, laser scanning up to two-photon systems
· motorized focus
· motorized positioning of the condenser (optional)
· flexible design of modular microscope body allows:

* stepless height adjustment of objective and reflected light illuminator by a manual Z drive allows working with different heights of probes and platforms
* fast exchange device for condenser and condenser carrier for the use of in vivo and in vitro platforms
* Easy removal of the transmission light device for even more space while in vivo structures like eg reality jet ball system or treadmill are used

· Sturdy construction with stainless steel guide columns, results in an outstanding stability, thermal drift and vibration free behaviour.
· Slim design for the use of up to 16 manipulator units
· Ground connection for electrophysiological measurements
· Z-Drive compatible with LN controls (e.g. SM7, Mini units, Junior units)

Advantages over competitors

· the modular design of the microscope covers all task fields for which different microscope types are needed in the past

* InVitro (slice and whole cell measurements)
* InVivo (imaging and measurements of anesthetized animals on platforms or stereotaxic frame )
* InVivo (imaging and measurements of awake animals on stereotaxic frame, ball jet reality systems, treadmills or Mobile home cage system)

· compatible with controls of LN manipulators. The customer can use one control for Microscope and Manipulator
· stepless height adjustment of objective and reflected light illuminator by a manual Z drive for maximum flexibility in height
· ground connection for electrophysiological measurements
· customized designs are easy to implement and available on request due to the modular design
