Stereoscope (Dissecting Scope)

The Zeiss SV11 stereomicroscope permits users to examine and record images of relatively large specimens, such as entire rodent brain sections or intact embryos, using reflected light or backlighting. Its color CCD camera is linked to a computer that utilizes Image-Pro Plus sotware so that ITG users may store images to their own museum volumes. This instrument also has a fluorescent light source and is thus ideal for the examination of green fluorescent protein (GFP) in intact organisms and tissues.
