-The well-equipped bScope microscopes are used intensively in the research field at secondary schools, universities, small laboratories and veterinary applications.

-In addition to an excellent ergonomic design, these robust and attractively priced microscopes are available in several configurations with HWF 10x/20 mm eyepieces and objectives for brightfield and phase contrast.

-A design that is both ergonomic and flexible, with ergonomic features like height adjustable eyepieces and low stage controls to minimize fatigue during long working sessions and so providing more comfort for microscopists.

-The robust, compact size of the bScope and the Cable Storage System allows more working space, safer operation and enables easy storage.

Specifications :

Eyepieces :
High wide field HWF plan 10x eyepieces with 20 mm field of view (Ø 23.2 mm tube).

-The bScope is equipped with a Siedentopf type head, 360° rotatable and equipped with 30° inclined Ø 23.2 mm tubes. Binocular and trinocular models are equipped with a diopter ± 5 adjustment on left eyepiece. The interpupillary distance is adjustable between 48 to 76 mm for a optimal and comfortable observation.

-The infinity PLi models are equipped with a unique swivelling rotating system allowing the ergonomic positioning of both tubes in a high and in a low position.

-The trinocular head comes with a Ø 23.2 mm tube, ensuring maximum flexibility. The prisms inside the heads are designed to minimize the light absorption for perfect digital imaging.

Nosepiece :
Revolving and reversed ball-beared quadruple or quintuple rotating nosepiece

Objectives :
-The state-of-the-art production techniques and multi layer coatings used for the manufacturing of the bScope objectives enables the bScope to be used in small laboratories and for higher education applications. Experience based optical designs offer world class spherical aberration correction and provides crisp true color images at high resolution. Combining the latest CNC and assembly techniques ensure the perfect centration of the objectives

• Bright field models: E-Plan, E-plan IOS infinity corrected, Plan IOS infinity corrected 4x/0.10, 10x/0.25, 20x/0.40, S40x/0.65, S60x/0.85 and S100x/1.25 oil immersion objectives

• Phase contrast models: E-plan Phase, E-plan Phase IOS infinity corrected, Plan Phase IOS infinity corrected 10x/0.25, 20x/0.40, S40x/0.65 and S100x/1.25 oil immersion objectives

-All S40x, S60x and S100x oil immersion objectives are spring loaded. All optics are anti-fungus treated and anti-reflection coated for maximum light throughput

Focusing :
Double coaxial, low-positioned coarse and fine adjustments with 180 graduations. Precision 1.11 µm, 200 µm per rotation, total travel approximately 19 mm. Supplied with an adjustable rack stop to prevent damage to sample and objectives. The coarse adjustment is equipped with friction control

Stage :
-The bScope is equipped with a scratch resistant 152/197 x 131 mm stage equipped with integrated 75 x 36 mm X-Y rackless mechanical stage, Vernier scale, soft-close removable specimen holder.

-The rackless stage has no protruding parts, enables more smooth movements and is safer in use. Low X-Y control knobs prevent fatique during low working sessions. The bScope can be supplied with a heating stage which can be set up to 50° Celsius by a PID temperature controller. Only available with new purchased microscopes.
Condenser for Brightfield :
The standard height-adjustable Abbe N.A. 1.25 condenser for brightfield comes with an iris diaphragm and swing-out filter holder.

Conderser for Zernike Phase Contrast :
The height adjustable Zernike NA. 1.25 phase contrast disc condenser comes with phase annuli for 10/20/S40x and S100x objectives, an iris diaphragm, and filter holder. The condenser includes a BF position for Bright Field microscopy. Phase contrast objectives in either EPL Phase, EPLi Phase or PLI Phase versions. Supplied with centering telescope and green filter.

Polarization :
The bScope has an integrated slot above the nosepiece for an optional polarization filter.

Illumination :
The microscopes of the bScope are equipped with a 1.5 W NeoLED adjustable illumination system for increased light output and can optionally be supplied with 3 rechargeable batteries for cordless operation.

Kohler illumination :
-A Köhler illumination ensures for all IOS infinity corrected models the highest possible contrast and the maximum achievable resolving power. Generates a uniform illumination of the sample and eliminates all interference from dust on lenses and side glare of the light source.

-The Köhler illumination is optional for non-IOS models.

NEOLED™ Illumination :
The 1.5 W adjustable Köhler NeoLED diascopic illumination is powered by an internal 100-240 V power supply making it suitable for world wide use.The innovative NeoLED design offers larger apertures, allowing the optical system of the bScope microscope to produce images at higher resolutions, very close to the theoretical diffraction limit of the optics. Other benefits of the NeoLED is the low energy consumption, no heating and a long operating lifetime.

Cordless Use : :
The optional rechargeable batteries turn the bScope into a cordless system.

Carrying Grip :
The integrated carrying grip at the back of the microscope ensures safe transportation of the microscope.

Anti Theft Slot :
At the back of the microscope; an anti-theft slot prevents the unauthorized appropriation of the microscope.

Packaging :
Smart Styrofoam packaging ensures a low environmental footprint while maintaining maximum safety during transport. Supplied with power cord, dust cover, tools, a spare fuse, white filter, user manual and 5 ml immersion oil.

Phase contrast models are supplied with green filter and centering telescope
