Incubator XLmulti S2 DARK for Zeiss Axio Observer

Incubator XLmulti S2 DARK

The large light-tight incu­ba­tor for the Axio Observ­er has slid­ing doors and a spa­cious access. Avail­able with a Stan­dard (on/off) and a Pre­mi­um (dim­ma­ble) illu­mi­na­tion, the incu­ba­tor warms up the micros­cope, the nose­piece, the objec­tives and fur­ther com­po­nents. Con­struct­ed from black acrylic glass it is espe­cial­ly qual­i­fied for flu­o­res­cence appli­ca­tions.


  • Avail­able in two vari­ants: Stan­dard (on/off) and Pre­mi­um (dim­ma­ble) illu­mi­na­tion
  • Homo­ge­neous heat dis­tri­b­u­tion
  • Par­tic­u­lar­ly suit­ed for flu­o­res­cence appli­ca­tions
  • Two large slid­ing doors in the front pan­el on the left and right hand side and one slid­ing door in each side pan­el
  • Mov­able obser­va­tion win­dow behind the front slid­ing doors for a view into the incu­ba­tor with­out any loss of heat
  • After open­ing the two slid­ing doors at the front, the obser­va­tion win­dow can be com­plete­ly shift­ed to the left hand side
  • Sil­i­cone sealed open­ings for cable and tube lead-through with­out the need to unplug any cables and tubes
  • Dif­fer­ent slide-in mod­ules for the right hand side for an adap­ta­tion to var­i­ous spe­cial com­po­nents
  • Hold­er for the humid­i­fi­ca­tion bot­tle (250 ml) and a tray for CO2 covers on the inner left hand side;  remov­able shelf for sam­ples and medi­um on the inner right hand side
  • The lamp sup­port can be swiv­elled back even if the fil­ter and polar­iz­er hold­er are swung out
  • The cable of the tem­per­a­ture sen­sor is in one piece and adjustable in the length, so it does not have to be plugged in at the incu­ba­tor
  • The Apo­Tome can be installed and removed while the incu­ba­tor is mount­ed
  • Com­pat­i­ble to all con­densers
  • Micro­ma­nip­u­la­tors of var­i­ous man­u­fac­tur­ers can be used
