Capture images that are crisp and rich in contrast, have excellent color fidelity, and contain more information. Stereo Discovery V12 enhances resolution and contrast in biology and quality assurance.

Stereo Discovery.V12 Key Features and Benefits

  • Advanced Optics Technology: Experience exceptional depth of field and clarity with the ZEISS SteREO Discovery.V12’s cutting-edge optics. Its V12 zoom offers a 12.5:1 zoom ratio, providing a wide range of magnifications for diverse applications.
  • Ergonomic Design for Comfortable Use: Long hours in the lab are made easier with its user-friendly and ergonomic design, ensuring comfort and reducing fatigue during extended use.
  • High-Resolution Imaging: Capture and document your findings with high-resolution images. The Discovery.V12 integrates seamlessly with ZEISS cameras and software, allowing for easy image acquisition and analysis.
  • Flexible Illumination Options: Illuminate your samples precisely with various lighting options, including brightfield, darkfield, and fluorescence, to reveal intricate details.

Take Control​

With the SYCOP Concept​


Use all essential functions of your stereo microscope without moving your eye from the eyepiece. Control all components with the joystick and touch screen or assign individual functions to the buttons. Position the System Control Panel wherever you need it. Magnification and focus, control of brightness, and display of current optical data – SYCOP makes your work easier.​

Electronic Zoom Curves​

For Twice as Sharp Images​


The zoom body is the core of stereo and zoom microscopes. When zooming, lenses have to be positioned precisely. eZoom replaces the mechanical curve with an electronic one. Stepping motors position the moveable lenses precisely and consider the individual lenses’ tolerances. Capture visibly more details with a doubled precision compared to a mechanical zoom body.​

Green: depth of field curve; within these parameters, images are in focus​
Red: typical defocus curve of a single zoom channel with mechanical zoom curve​
Blue: typical defocus curve of a single zoom channel with an electronic zoom curve
