Zeiss LSM Exciter Laser Scanning Microscope

This was used by a Research Department at Drexel University and is no longer needed for Research but was in good working condition when last used a few years ago.

Table and anti-vibration slab not included.

Good large freight elevators (2) to the basement dock, maybe 75 yards to the dock from the elevator. There are two 30 minute loading zone spaces and four one hour loading zone spaces at this 15th and Race Street location. This is Center City Philadelphia and those spaces are hard to get. Winning buyer must park on the street and then can pull to the large, good, multilevel loading dock after this equipment has been brought there by the winning bidder.
