Polarized light technique enhances the contrast and quality of the image obtained with birefringent materials, ensuring a high sensitivity in qualitative and quantitative studies on a wide range of specimens, especially in crystallography, geology, mineralogy and earth science but also in biology (especially for gout analysis).

OPTIKA B-510 polarized light microscopes include special components exclusive to this class, such as a strain-free objectives (IOS W-PLAN POL for transmitted light only, or IOS LWD W-PLAN POL for reflected and transmitted), Bertrand lens, filters, condenser, and 360° rotating graduated stage.

The full Köhler system optimizes the microscope optical path to produce high sample contrast and homogeneous bright light, reducing image artifacts, whilst the state-of-the-art, exclusive X-LED³ lighting source (with transmitted light only or reflected and transmitted) makes sure your specimen will be properly and homogeneously illuminated with incredibly low consumption and significantly long lifespan.

With a field of view of 22 mm, B-510 polarized light microscopes offers a reliable and durable solution delivering contrasted and sharp images through the impressive optics.
