Axio Lab.A1 / Laboratory microscope

Axio Lab.A1

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Axio Lab.A1 was especially designed for daily, continuous laboratory work. The human user was put into the center of considerations: “All wits in focus” – the goal for the product design work. The three main control elements: focus drive, stage drive and intensity control were set to a special spatial collocation – for highest level ergonomic requirements and an intuitive operating concept. For this reason Axio Lab.A1 became the first laboratory microscope ever, which was rewarded with an ergonomics signet from an independent organization – from TÜV Rheinland. Energy saving LED illumination and valuable materials complete the product profile.
