  • Microscope body with both incident and transmitted light, this is based on the exclusive X-LED8 lighting source (8 W, corresponding to 100 W halogen bulb).
  • Epi-illumination attachment powered by a built-in 100 W halogen lamp.
  • Epi-illumination attachment powered by the exclusive X-LED lighting source, boosted at 18 W power, corresponding to over 150 W halogen bulb.

Finally, B-1000MET can be configured for brightfield mode or for both brightfield and darkfield observation in reflected light.

B-1000MET features the outstanding brightness and incredible color reproduction, to be a reliable solution for routine and research metallurgical and material science applications in several industries. Fully modular, B-1000MET gives multiple options of configuration, from basic manual controls to a fully motorized version, including motorized nosepiece, stage and focus.
