The Bresser Science MPO-401 is a professional grade polarisation Biological Microscope that is intended for Intermediate and Expert level users and recommended for the following application range: Biology, Gemology, Mineralogy, Botany, Education, Teaching, Entomology, Forensic, Research, Laboratory, Medical science, Pathology, Veterinary medicine, Imaging and analysis software.
Unlike normal light, polarised light has a preferred vibration plane and it is this property that reveals the anisotropic properties of certain objects (whose observable properties depend on the direction of light). In this polarised light; crystals, animal hairs, feathers, muscles, nerve fibers and vegetable cell walls which have a which have a preferred direction in their organic molecules, show structures which were hidden in a normal bright field image. Images made by polarised light are often characterized by a fantastic colouring and polarisation microscopes are particularly used in mineralogy, geology, biology and medicine.
In order to change the object's orientation in a controlled way, the Bresser Science MPO-401 Microscope has a round, center-adjustable and full rotatable object stage with degree scale. Illumination is provided by halogen bulb lamp (20 W) with dimmer that can be moderated by a field diaphragm (used to achieve the Köhler illumination) and a 360° rotatable polariser (for the production of polarised light). There are also centering implements for the objectives and the analyser attachment (for the analysis of the polarised light).
The analyser attachment is designed to receive the 360° rotatable analyser and optional available slips (Bertrand lens for conoscopy; quartz wedge plate that is used in order to obtain special colour effects).
Wide field eyepieces WF10x are included and can be fitted to the trinocular head with an inclination of 30° and boast eye relief adjustment as well as dioptre adjustment. The eyepieces give clear, faithful reproduction; bright, true coloured, sharp and rich in detail.
The MPO-401 comes complete with eyepieces (WF10x), an Abbe condenser with iris diaphragm, special polarisation objectives (4x, 10x, 40x retractable, 100x-oil retractable), filters (blue, ground glass) and immersion oil.
