For specialized medical applications, such as identifying gout or CPPD (pseudo-gout) crystals suspended in synovial fluid, we offer several dedicated microscope solutions for urology, rhuematologist laboratory clinicians and health officials worldwide. These are polarized light microscopes from leading manufacturers including Accu-Scope, Meiji Techno & LW Scientific.

Medical professionals diagnose gout or pseudo-gout by taking synovial fluid from the infected joint in the process of arthrocentesis. A lab technician prepares a wet smear on a slide and uses polarized microscopy to determine the presence of sodium urate crystals (gout) or calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate or "CPPD" (pseudo-gout) within the fluid extracted from the infected joint.

If a polarizing microscope is not available, a tentative diagnosis can be made if needle-shaped monosodium urate crystals are identified using ordinary light microscopy.CPPD crystals are small rods, squares, or rhomboids and are usually harder to identify with light microscopy.

The two main components that comprise the polarization elements that are used in the identification of gout and pseudo-gout crystals are the analyzer and the full wave plate which is located within the intermediate tube and the polarizer is integrated above the transmitted light

We offer a variety of Polarizing Microscopes suitable for gout or podagra diagnosis in several price ranges.
