"The options to customize are very limited, the hardware configuration is over-simplified and in my opinion there is not enough automation. The price is a little high with a mediocre performance, and in order to perform high content screening add ons are required."
Extendible optical configuration
Taking advantage of infinity optics, the TE2000’s extendible design allows the distance between the objective and tube lenses to be extended up to 80mm (max.). This feature enables the researcher to add optional attachments without modifying the microscope. For example, by using optional stage risers you can add a laser light source, without affecting the performance or stability for standard epi-fluorescence or DIC techniques.
The TE2000 is designed to accept retrofitable motorized options in major sections of the microscope, which allows the researcher to choose the desired combinations via the dedicated communications hub controller to suit the required research method.
