The Mi5 Polarizing LabScope is an essential tool for synovial fluid analysis. Crystal-induced arthritis, such as gout or pseudogout, can be identified and differentiated with the use of the polarizing attachment and red compensator lens. The Mi5 also functions as a flat-field, laboratory-grade microscope for routine cytology, hematology, urinalysis, etc. This specialized system was designed to combine high-resolution optics with functionality at an affordable price for rheumatologists, gemologists, and more.
