Nosepiece uses the same DIN standard compensator slot design as the LV100N POL to accept various compensators for advanced quantitative measurements. All five objectives are centerable.
The intermediate tube incorporates a Bertrand lens as standard, enabling both observation and capture of conoscopic and orthoscopic images.
Diascopic/Episcopic illumination type
Both diascopic and episcopic polarizing observation are possible by mounting the LV-UEPI-N universal epi-illuminator. The epi-illuminator uses the high-intensity 50W lamp as standard which provides brighter illumination than a conventional 100W lamp. A noise-terminator mechanism is employed to provide sharp images with high S/N ratios.
CFI60 Optical System
The industry-acclaimed infinity optics – the CFI60 system – successfully deliver long working distances and high NA and produce tack-sharp aberration-free images. They employ an eco-glass that is manufactured with no harmful substances such as lead and arsenic. The episcopic objectives are from the newly developed CFI60-2 series and produce pin-sharp aberration-free images regardless of magnification.
- Focus stroke has been improved to 30mm, facilitating observation of tall samples.
- Clamp-type upper limit focusing mechanism makes for easy and safe sample exchange.
- Excellent cost effective and precision manufacturing is balanced with superb basic performance in a standard level polarizing microscope.
