High Quality Upright Laboratory Microscopes
With the B-600 series, OPTIKA Microscopes set a new record in the quality-to-price ratio.
The extraordinary characteristics of a series of highly professional microscopes are now accessible for all laboratories, meeting the needs of those who are looking for a prime quality instrument, without having large budgets.
The B-600 series microscopes are instruments specifically designed to be used in a laboratory, where high optical and mechanical quality as well as sturdiness to guarantee longer life is required.
The B-600 microscopes have been designed for the best performance in laboratory use. According to the models, two different optical systems are available.
With INFINIFIX optical system, the two worlds of infinity-corrected and 160 mm optical system find the way to meet each other.
With this exclusive optical system the B-600 series uses a true infinity-corrected optical path, implemented with standard 160 mm objectives.
IOS simply means "Infinity Optical System". All IOS models of B-600 series are equipped with Infinity corrected objectives.X-LED8TM - Never so bright!
§OPTIKA is proud to introduce its own latest LED powered illumination system. Developed by our R&D dept. it consists of a new combination of LED and optical technology. A new high-efficiency matrix-based LED board works in combination with a special optical lens, which allows to double the intensity of the light generated by the LED itself. The result is a quantity of light equivalent to the light generated by a normal 100W halogen bulb, but with a colour temperature of 6300K. It means white light instead of the yellow one produced by halogen bulbs. The electrical consumption (8W only) shows the high efficiency of the system: same light intensity with less than 10% of the consumption of a normal halogen bulb. Last but not least, the lifetime of our LED: 50.000 hours, insted of 1.500 hours!
Optical systems & Objectives
The B-600 series microscopes are equipped, depending on the various models, with two different types of infinity optical systems: INFINIFIX™ and IOS™.
In both cases the field diameter of the system is 22 mm.
All models in the B-600 series are equipped with plan achromatic objectives.
The models with INFINIFIX™system are featured by plan achromatic objectives corrected to 160mm.
The models with IOS™ system are featured by plan achromatic objectives corrected to infinity.
Depending on the models, different sets of objectives are included in the package.
Modern and ergonomic, this stand is made of die-cast aluminium. Macro and micrometric focusing (graduated, 0.002mm) with coaxial controls.
Adjustable focusing tension and upper sliding stop.
They are available in binocular and in trinocular version suitable for photography/ video applications.
Both heads are equipped with interpupillary distance control (51-78 mm) and with dioptric compensation that takes place on the left eyepiece holder tube.
EWF10x/22 eyepieces also suitable for people wearing spectacles. All heads are 360° rotatating and 30° inclined. Additionally, a new 30°-60° ergonomical head is available as an accessory.
Two kinds of swing-out condensers are available (depending on the models): - 0.10/1.20 N.A. for better performances with high magnifications; - 0.22/0.90 N.A. for better performances with low magnifications (pathology).
This large-sized (175x145mm) stage is fitted with a graduated translation mechanism (double 0.1mm vernier) operated by a rack-and-pinion system with coaxial controls mounted in a comfortable position beneath the specimen stage. The object slide clamp accepts up to two specimens at the same time.
The standard rectangular stage may be replaced by a rotating stage for polarized light (optional feature). XY range: 76x51mm.
The B-600 series is equipped with the strongest illumination systems of the OPTIKA range. Two kinds of illuminators are available and both systems have been designed according to the Köhler scheme with field diaphragm:
- 12V/50W halogen illuminator. Centrable bulb in external case equipped with active cooling system.
- X-LED8™ System 8W white LED illuminator. Centrable, in external case.
