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.
