OPTIKA B-510 phase contrast microscopes are synonym of reliable and ultra-modern, advanced routine solution for efficient analysis in transmitted light applications and phase contrast, considering all the relevant aspects for users.
B-510 Series offers user-friendly operations, robustness, durability and superb resolution, delivering contrasted and sharp images through the impressive IOS W-PLAN PH optics, the Infinity Corrected Optics (IOS) for phase contrast providing the best cost-effective choice for high contrast and resolution, matching all the requirements of labs requiring good quality routinary optics and designed to ensure field flatness up to F.N. 22.
The full Köhler system optimizes the microscope optical path to produce high sample contrast and homogeneous bright light, reducing image artifacts, whilst the state-of-the-art, exclusive X-LED3 lighting source makes sure your specimen will be properly and homogeneously illuminated with incredibly low consumption and significantly long lifespan.
Phase contrast is widely used on transparent, non-stainable, samples like culture of living cells, microorganisms and subcellular particles to enhance the contrasts of transparent and colorless objects, revealing many cellular structures that are not visible with a simple brightfield microscope.
