In this FemtoSmart Bridge microscope, the foot is replaced with a lifting apparatus that provides an adjustable space between the microscope base and the top lens of the objective. The role of the modified elevating foot is to move the head along vertical direction. The moving range is 50 cm, the coarse Z-adjustment along the column is 1 mm. This elevator is situated outside of the workplace allowing an enlarged place below the Smart head. We provide the optimal combination of multiple height and working distance choices to address most animal models.
