Why We Love the B-500TDK Darkfield Microscope

OPTIKA B-500TDK Darkfield MicroscopeThe OPTIKA B-500TDK utilizes darkfield microscopy, making it suitable for viewing objects that are transparent or absorb little to no light. This is why darkfield microscopes like the B-500TDK are perfect for viewing live blood samples and other such specimens.

While there are many reasons that the B-500TDK stands out from the crowd, there are several features that make it particularly exceptional:

  • European made

  • Darkfield lighting system, which provides a black background against which the specimen is illuminated
  • Twenty-two millimeter field of view
  • High-point eyepieces
  • Large double layer stage
  • Bright, powerful X-LED illumination which produces double the lighting of an ordinary LED with built-in led cable blasting the light directly to the condenser
