OPTIKA B-510 phase contrast microscopes are synonym of reliable and ultra-modern, advanced routine solution for efficient analysis in transmitted light applications and phase contrast, considering all the relevant aspects for users. B-510 Series offers user-friendly operations, robustness, durability and superb resolution, delivering contrasted and sharp images through the impressive IOS W-PLAN PH optics, the Infinity Corrected Optics (IOS) for phase contrast providing the best cost-effective choice for high contrast and resolution, matching all the requirements of labs requiring good quality routinary optics and designed to ensure field flatness up to F.N. 22. 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 makes sure your specimen will be properly and homogeneously illuminated with incredibly low consumption and significantly long lifespan. A dedicated model is available for Asbestos fiber analysis at a glance. Phase contrast is widely used on transparent, non-stainable, samples like culture of living cells, microorganisms and subcellular particles to enhance the contrasts of transparent and colorless objects, revealing many cellular structures that are not visible with a simple brightfield microscope. Show Benefits (+) PHASE CONTRAST Phase-contrast microscopy is a particular technique applied in transparent, non-stainable, samples like culture of living cells, microorganisms, lithographic patterns, latex dispersion, fibers, asbestous and subcellular particles. It reveals many cellular structures that are not visible with a simple brightfield microscope. CONDENSER SUITABLE FOR DARKFIELD OPTIKA B-510PH is equipped with a 5-position dedicated rotating condenser for brightfield (standard use), phase contrast (10x/20x, 40x and 100x phase diaphragms), and a darkfield position for dry objectives IMPROVING THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF MICROSCOPY EXPERIENCE TOP IMAGES COME FROM IMPRESSIVE OPTICS Trinocular heads with 22mm field number True infinity optical system available (IOS) Fully centerable condenser for precise light control LABORATORY GRADE OPTICS IOS W-PLAN objectives, high numerical apertures Planachromatic optics with more than 90% flat field Significant optical correction, low field curvature and distortion BEST RESOLUTION, COLOR AND CONTRAST WITH KÖHLER ILLUMINATION B-510 Series is equipped with Köhler 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. 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 Ergonomic positioning of the main controls Long lasting mechanical parts, rackless moving stage Maintenance-free illumination system EASY TO CARRY, LIGHT, STEADY Improving productivity, reducing fatigue Increases job accuracy and quality Easily portable, with comfortable hand-grip 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. Specifications Observation Methods Brightfield, Phase Contrast.
