The Motic B1 Series is designed for high school and university students, with large, easy-to-operate focus knobs and stage controls, and widefield eyepieces which are more forgiving of a student's head and eye movement. It features a fully rotating, 45 degree-inclined trinocular viewing head with 10X widefield eyepieces, 53mm to 72mm of interpupillary adjustment and individual diopter adjustment for each ocular tube. Designed around a forward-facing quadruple nose piece, the B1 offers a choice of binocular or trinocular configuration with Super Contrast objective lenses.


The Super Contrast objectives (ASC 4x, 10x, 40xS, 100xS oil), are bonded with contrast-enhancing coatings to produce especially sharp images for Life Science applications. Magnification levels include 40x, 100x, 400x and 1,000x.

Stage & Focus

A large double-layered mechanical stage features a spring-loaded slide clamp with dropdown coaxial controls for convenient 'eyes down' operation. The stage range of movement is 70mm x 30mm. Focusing includes high quality rack and pinion mechanics for longer life and coaxial coarse/fine focus controls for easier focusing. The fine focus scale value is 0.002mm.

The right hand focus control features finger tip controls while the dimmer switch is conveniently located immediately under the left hand focus control. Both controls can be operated during 'eyes down' observation. Safety features include a rack stop to ensure that the stage does not impact with the objectives and thereby break the slides, and a slip clutch control to minimize the risk of damage due to over extension. The condenser is a professional focusable Abbe 1.25 NA with iris diaphragm and filter for optimal adjustments. Higher quality Kohler illumination is powered by 3W LED with variable intensity.
