System Information

General Description

Microscope for photomicrography of fluorescent biological samples

Capabilities

Diaphot is equipped with a Siedentopf-design binocular head built onto a die-cast body. A focusing Bertrand Lens is built into the binocular body for fast alignment of the phase annular ring. A dark slide position is incorporated in the turret to cut off stray light from the optical system during time lapse cinemicrography as well as a low-power focusing magnifier for critically sharp photomicrography with the 2x and 4x objectives. The microscope is fitted with a 50-watt halogen illuminator.
