Title: OBSERVATION DEVICE AND METHOD, AND OBSERVATION DEVICE CONTROL PROGRAM
Abstract:
Provided are an observation device and an observation method, and an observation device control program so that, when a culture vessel is scanned by an imaging optical system and auto-focus control is performed at each observation position, the auto-focus control can be more efficiently performed to reduce photographing time. By moving at least one of a stage, on which a culture vessel 50 having a plurality of wells 52 is placed, and an imaging optical system which has an objective lens for forming an image of an object to be observed in the well 52, an observation position on the stage is scanned to observe the object to be observed. When moving the objective lens in the optical axis direction to perform auto-focus control at each observation position, start timings of the auto-focus control at the observation positions are switched on the basis of a boundary portion D of the wells 52 adjacent in the scanning direction at the observation position.
