Carl Zeiss has launched a new multidiscussion system for Axio Scope and Axio Imager light microscopes. This enables up to 21 persons to view the same object microscopically at the same time. The image generated under the microscope is seen by all observers with an identical image orientation in a 23 millimeters field of view. The co-observation system is suitable for training and consultation situations. Especially in the field of medicine it can be used, for example, in the training of students and postgraduates or for consultation purposes and joint assessment of difficult specimens in medical diagnostics.
In medical training the direct impression of the microscope image is often preferred to a photograph or monitor display because finer structures, and color nuances in particular, that can be important for the diagnosis, can frequently be better recognized in a microscope image. Advantages include the fast and flexible possibility of increasing the number of co-observer workstations, as well as easy adaptation to existing conditions at the site of use. As every configuration can be implemented with standard stages, no expensive special stages are required.
