The new Meiji TC5000 inverted tissue culture Epi Fluorescent microscopes are an ideal choice for laboratory and research applications. They feature a computer aided design and ergonomically positioned controls that provide stress free operation, increased efficiency and maximum productivity. Meiji's newly designed ICOS™ (Infinity Corrected Optical System) provide superior fluorescent images. The low price of these quality microscopes manufactured in Japan make them a substantial value over other Japanese & German manufactures.
The configured models below feature either a Siedentopf binocular or trinocular head. All models feature a front mounted camera port suitable for CCD, 35mm or digital cameras. The included eyepieces are Super Widefield 10x High Eyepoint with a 22mm field of view. The models include LWD TC Plan Fluorescent 10x and 20x objectives. These optics are made using carefully selected extra low dispersion, non fluorescing glass. Layers of a new advanced multiplayer anti-reflection coating are applied to minimize surface lens reflections. The TC Plan F objectives have a high light transmission which extends into the ultra-violet excitation range. The result is an objective that provides an extremely bright, high contrast image with high UV transmission and impeccable color correction. The nosepiece is quintuple, side facing with positive precision click stops. A three position Epi-Fluorescent slider is included with basic blue, green and ND50 neutral density filters. Dual illumination systems are standard, 100w mercury and 30w halogen. A plain stage with 180mm x 245mm with replaceable glass insert with 45mm opening is standard.
