Continuing a tradition started by Robert Koch: Research tuberculosis with a microscope from Carl Zeiss In 1882, Robert Koch discovered Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the pathogen that causes tuberculosis. Here is another substantial technology contribution from Carl Zeiss to the battle against infectious diseases: Primo StariLED, the new fluorescence microscope.
Primo Star iLED is the flexible solution for tuberculosis analysis with LED fluorescence excitation and transmitted-light brightfield illumination.
Your Decision Decide for yourself if you want to analyze tuberculosis with Ziehl-Neelsen-Staining or if you like to use fluorescence excitation, e.g. with Auramine O dye. Primo Star iLED gives you the opportunity: simply switch between the two modes.
Special Price for Countries Most Affected by the Disease The microscope Primo Star iLED is the result of a cooperation between Carl Zeiss and the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND). Primo Star iLED will be offered at an especially beneficial price to 74 "highest priority countries".
