Product Description

The Swift Optical M10DB-MP Digital Siedentopf Binocular Compound Microscope has a pair of 10x widefield eyepieces, a reverse-mounted nosepiece with four DIN multi-phase objectives that are parcentered and parfocal, LED illumination, nested coarse and fine focus, a 1.25 NA multi-phase condenser, and a mechanical stage. The 3.0MP digital camera captures and displays images on a computer or projector. The Siedentopf binocular head has a pair of eyepieces with interpupillary adjustment, and a fixed inclination to reduce eye and neck strain. A Siedentopf binocular head enables the viewer to change the interpupillary distance without changing the tube length, eliminating the need to refocus the image. Dioptric adjustment accommodates individual eye-strength differences. A reverse-mounted nosepiece keeps objectives out of the way to prevent damage and contamination, and to enable more secure slide handling. Multi-phase objectives are compatible with brightfield, darkfield, and phase-contrast illumination. Parcentered and parfocal objectives ensure that the image stays centered and focused when the magnification is changed. The 40xR and 100xR objectives are retractable and spring-loaded to prevent damage to the slide or objective when focusing. The 100xR objective is also an oil objective that provides increased resolution over a standard objective. A digital compound microscope is used for inspection and dissection of specimens when two-dimensional images are desired, and where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required.

The digital camera is used for displaying still microscopy images and streaming live videos to a computer or projector. It includes image capture and editing software that provides still image and live video capture and editing capability, including measurement functions. The software supports the Motic SFC file format and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7, and Mac OS X. The camera has a USB 2.0 data port (cable included).

The microscope has lower (diascopic) illumination that transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility of translucent and transparent objects. The LED light source provides bright, cool light for working with temperature-sensitive or live specimens, and a rheostat controls the amount of light emanating from the lamp. The multi-phase condenser provides brightfield, darkfield, or phase-contrast illumination and has an iris diaphragm to optimize the amount of light illuminating the specimen. Brightfield (BF) illumination allows the specimen to absorb light, resulting in a dark image on a light background. Often used to enhance contrast for live or unstained biological specimens, darkfield (DF) illumination reflects light off the specimen, resulting in a light image on a dark background. Phase-contrast provides high contrast and visibility without the use of stains, allowing specimens to be observed in their natural state without being killed or fixed. The condenser is controlled using a rack-and-pinion mechanism. The mechanical stage locks the slide into place and provides precise slide manipulation along the X- and Y-axes. Coaxial coarse and fine focus knobs are nested to speed focusing for left-and right-handed viewers, and tension adjustment ensures specimen stays focused during viewing.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

Swift Optical Instruments manufactures microscopes and weather instruments. The company, founded in 1959, is headquartered in Schertz, TX.
