OPTIKA B-510POL-I Trinocular Polarizing Microscope with Transmitted & Incident IlluminationOPTIKA
The polarized light microscope is designed to observe specimens that are visible primarily due to their optical anisotropic or birefringent features. Polarized light microscopy is perhaps best known for its applications in the geological sciences, which focusses primarily on the study of minerals in rock thin sections. However, a wide variety of other materials can be examined in polarized light, including both natural and industrial minerals, concrete, ceramics, mineral fibers, polymers, starch, wood, urea. The technique can be used both qualitatively and quantitatively with success, and is an outstanding tool for the materials sciences, geology, chemistry, biology, metallurgy, and even diagnostic (gout analysis).
B-510 Series is available also in different techniques (darkfield, brightfield, fluorescence, material science, phase contrast).
IMPROVING THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF MICROSCOPY EXPERIENCE
TOP IMAGES COME FROM IMPRESSIVE OPTICS
LABORATORY GRADE OPTICS
BEST RESOLUTION, COLOR AND CONTRAST WITH KÃ–HLER ILLUMINATION
B-510 Series is equipped with KÃ¶hler which optimizes the microscope optical path to produce high sample contrast and homogeneous bright light, reducing image artifacts, reflections and glares.
In this way, you will achieve the full control over the illumination aperture to reach the best compromise between resolution and contrast and for some enhancements on the depth of field.
IMPROVING IMAGE QUALITY WHEN EXAMINING BIREFRINGENT MATERIALS
Normally the polarizer and analyzer are aligned in the light path at right angles, but when they are adjusted, the light is able to pass through the filters at different angles, allowing you to see different aspects of the specimen. As the components of a birefringent, anisotropic sample are also aligned at different angles, a rotation of the filter (or the rotating stage, if present) will generate different effects and colors, required to understand more about the specimen composition.
X-LED3 EXCLUSIVE LIGHTING SOURCE
Achieve bright images, improved color fidelity, pure white color temperature, incredibly low energy consumption and longer lifespan with the unique X-LED technology, able to double the light intensity for incomparable performance. Relevant money and energy saving thanks to the incredibly low energy consumption which allows you to cut the electricity bills by 90%!
SAFE AND CONVENIENT OPERATIONS
The rackless stage has been designed with a belt-driven mechanism that allows a smooth movement without any protruding part. This design gives you a more compact solution and lowers any risk of injury after accidentally hitting the rack with your hands.
A NEW FRONTIER IN ERGONOMIC PRODUCT DESIGN
ELEGANT DESIGN WITHSTANDING EVERYDAY USE
EASY TO CARRY, LIGHT, STEADY
EXTRA LARGE SPECIMEN VIEW (22 MM FIELD NUMBER)
Enjoy a 22 mm field of view ensures you to gain peripheral view and comfort when observing the specimen. This means more efficient inspections and allows a natural and easy view, particularly needed in a laboratory environment.
