This model features both transmitted and incident illumination advanced features and optics that is perfect for both brightfield and fluorescence applications. One model is available for phase contrast applications and comes with a Zernike-style phase contrast condenser with annulus rings. All models come standard with quadruple reversed nosepiece with positive click stops. The viewing head is Seidentnopf and all models come trinocular for either photo or video capabilities. There is a slide out main prism that facilitates maximum light through the head. All models have a graduated mechanical stage with 30 x 70mm movable range. The focusing mechanism is coaxial for precise focusing control. The upper illumination system is 100W HBO with a mercury light source and the lower illumination system is 6V 20W variable halogen (supplied with blue, green and neutral density filters). The model for phase contrast has a centerable field diaphragm for Kohler illumination.
