OPTIKA B-510BF Trinocular Biological Microscope

The Optika B-500 microscopes have been designed for the best performance in routine laboratory use.


  • 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-500 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-500 series are equipped with Infinity corrected objectives.
  • The modern stand design, with accessible and ergonomic controls, complements and enhances the instrument's usability.
  • The ample 22 mm field of view and the high-point eyepieces allow for hours of use without eye fatigue.
  • 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)
  • A generously sized double layer stage, suitable for two specimen slides, optimally completes the instrument. 175 x 145mm, XY range 76 x 51mm.
  • X-LED™ – The future of illumination: OPTIKA Microscopes is proud to introduce a revolutionary LED powered illumination system consisting of a new combination of LED and optical technology. A new high-efficiency single chip LED improved by a special optical system doubles the light intensity generated by an ordinary LED.
    The resulting light is comparable to the light generated by a 30W halogen lamp but with a colour temperature of 6300K: this means a white light instead of the yellow one produced by filament lamps. The electric consumption (3W only) proves the high efficiency of this system: the same light intensity with less consumption; 10% of an ordinary 30W halogen lamp's consumption.
    In addition, the lifetime of the LED is 50,000 hours instead of the 1,500 hours of an ordinary halogen lamp.
  • Assembled in Italy
