The Innovation microscope is equipped to ease the burden on the busiest and most discriminating lab technicians and specialists. Powerful performance, crisp clarity, and rugged construction, backed by a lifetime warranty on optical and mechanical components, make the Innovation a valued addition to any laboratory.
Includes an Infinity Turret Phase Kit: 10x, 20x, 40x, 100x (Phase Contrast Kit for viewing live unstained specimens such as sperm)
Infinity Flat-Field Objectives: Developed with high-contrast infinity PLAN objectives, the Innovation microscope produces sharp, crisp, flat-field images across the entire field of view. Whether spending hours scanning cytologies or counting differentials, a flat field of view will ensure that the critical cells at the edge of view are just as clear and focused as those cells in the middle. The infinity optical system, as found on the most expensive research microscopes, is the premium platform for the highest contrast and resolution.
The 4-objective model features the most common configuration - 4x-10x-40x-100x (oil) - on a 4-hole reverse nosepiece. The reverse nosepiece allows for greater access to slides for quick changes.
The 5-objective model is ideal for laboratory and research use. It offers a 4x-10x-20x-40x-100x (oil) configuration on a 5-hole reverse nosepiece. The 20x objective is a useful power between the 10x and 40x for research and cytology scanning applications (request pricing on this version).
Add an optional 50x OIL objective for the highest resolution and to double the field-of-view of the 100x OIL objective. Plus, users can stay in oil while scanning under 50x then flip to the 100x for a closer look at a questionable cell, without fear of dipping the 40x objective into oil.
Eyepieces: The 10x/22mm eyepieces are the largest and widest-viewing eyepieces in this microscope class. The physical eye-tube diameter is 30mm, much larger than standard 23mm eyepieces, and the field number 22mm allows for a much broader view under each objective power. These eyepieces feature a HIGH FOCAL POINT, meaning that the eyes stay farther away allowing users to keep their eyeglasses on while using the microscope. Additionally, each eyepiece has a
built-in diopter adjustment for quick corrections for a weak left or right eye. Finally, two pairs of rubber eye-guards are included...one low-profile set, and one larger set of cups for improving eye position and eliminating
Head: Inclined 30-degrees for a comfortable user posture. It accommodates interpupillary widths from 50mm to 75mm and can be rotated 180-degrees upward to a higher position for taller users.
Stage: The large, graphite-coated mechanical stage stands up to years of wear and tear. The rackless, belt-drive system allows the stage to operate smoothly, comfortably, and safely by eliminating the left and right projection of the gear track as on traditional microscopes. This stage will accommodate two slides at once, for faster scanning and comparisons. Adjustable friction can be set for lighter or firmer coarse focusing, eliminating stage drift.
Lighting: The bright, white, uniform LED illumination maintains constant daylight-color, showing stained specimens in their true vibrant colors. With variable intensity, it is more than bright enough for routine brightfield microscopy and also well suited for applications such as phase contrast and darkfield. The LED bulb lasts approximately 50,000 hours, which could be up to 20 years under normal clinical use. The bulb generates very little heat as opposed to the traditional halogen models, and it uses a tenth of the energy.
Condenser: The ABBE condenser is easily aligned within its holder using the two alignment thumbscrews, ensuring a centered field of light. Calibrated indicator marks help the user set the sub-stage iris diaphragm to the perfect numerical aperture to match each objective for the best resolution. The additional Kohler iris on the base can be closed to reduce stray light and improve clarity.
