TriM Scope II

Stands and Stages

The TriM Scope II 2-Photon microscope can be combined with upright and inverted stands. Currently, LaVision BioTec provides its own upright intravital stand, Nikon Ti-U, Olympus BX 51 WI, Zeiss Axio Examiner, and Zeiss Axio Observer. Most stands can be combined with LaVsion BioTec’s Intravital Stage or 3rd party stages for patch clamp applications.

Intravital Stage

The Intravital Stage is a xy-table including hydraulic precision z-drive to adapt the table z-position to the specimen and the objective dimensions. On the table is a lot of space to position the sample in the best way under the microscope and to fix e.g. patch clamp accessories directly on the stage. 

The Intravital stage for upright microscopes can be delivered in 3 different versions:

  1. xy manual, 80 mm z-travel
  2. xy motorized, 80 mm z-trave
  3. xy motorized, 180 mm z-travel

All versions, with manual and motorized movement in xy, include a manual hydraulic precision z-drive to adapt the table z-position. During image acquisition, the stage will be fixed.

The motorized version is integrated in the ImSpector Software package that supports image stitching and allows to control the movement of the table and thereby of the sample precisely. Specially, during stitching and multipoint measurements in which the sample is moved by the stage to allow recording of images from different areas during one measurement.
