Optical equipment. The DIN WF 10x/18 eyepieces of the BioBlue mono- and binocular models provide the ideal field of view. The achromatic semiplan 45mm DIN objectives are parafocally aligned on the 160mm DIN tubes. When changing the magnification the image remains perfectly in focus and centered. The high precision mechanism of the coaxial course- and fine control combined with the spherical corrected optics enable the BioBlue to produce very sharp images. All models are equipped with a height adjustable Abbe condenser N.A. 1.25 with iris diaphragm and filter holder. BioBlue stand: The aluminium BioBlue stand has been designed to be very stable. A builtin protection system prevents any damage to the specimen and objective. The BB.4200 has a plain stage with 2 object clamps. All other models have a large 130x130mm stage with vernier and a integrated mechanical translation stage with 70x28mm travel range. LED illuminator: The BioBlue is equipped with a 1 watt adjustable LED lluminator, which produces no heat. Besides the low power consumption the internal universal AC power supply makes use of an external vulnerable AC-DC power adapter completely redundant. The built-in rechargeable AA type batteries allow a 60 hrs continuous operation of the microscope. Ergonomic design: A lot of effort has been put into the ergonomical aspects of the BioBlue. A comfortable handgrip enables easy transportation. Ergonomically placed adjustment knobs minimize fatigue during long microscopy sessions. The general shape of the stand has been specifically designed to match todayﾒs standard.
