Built-in darkroom, compact design

Points on recording

Thanks to a compact design with no need for a darkroom, the microscope can be installed in a cultivation room to perform time-lapse imaging as a routine task. Such an installation eliminates the need to carry targets between rooms and enables the user to obtain high-quality experiment data without concern for contamination or cell damage.
