The Keyence BZ-9000 Fluorescence Microscope (Live Cell) is a fully motorized microscope that allows for imaging of high quality with BF, phase contrast, and fluorescence modes. A Tokai Hit temperature and CO2 gas controller allow live-cell imaging. The system greatly reduces time spent on learning operations and adjustments with the microscope. Its software package includes image stitching, z-stack, multi-color/multi-points time-lapse, movie recording, time-series brightness measurement function, hybrid cell count, and macro cell count functions. It also allows for easy real-time 3D imaging.
