ISS BIOLAB microscope

The microscope is part of the BIOLAB module on the ISS. The samples are transported into the beam path automatically. A 4-x lens changer makes it possible to view samples at a magnification of 4 to 40. The focus is adjusted by an autofocus algorithm. A condenser with 4 different filters adds to the functionality.
