BioBlue Lab Summary
With European design and optics, the Euromex BioBlue Lab is the flagship microscope in Euromex's BlueLine Series of microscopes. With plan IOS objectives in an infinity corrected optical system, the BioBlue Lab is designed for laboratory and applications at a fraction of the price of competing microscope brands. An important feature is the rackless stage which enables smooth slide handling and fewer sharp edges. Illumination is also powered by Euromex's proprietary NeoLED™ which is double intensity with improved resolution.
The standard configuration includes an infinity corrected optical system with four plan IOS objective lenses set in a quadruple reversed nosepiece. Optional configurations include Plan IOS phase contrast. Two SWF10x/20 eyepieces are also included with optional 15x and 20x eyepieces available. All optical components are anti-fungal treated.
Stage & Focusing
The BioBlue Lab features a 140mm x 150mm rackless mechanical stage with 75mm x 40mm range of movement. Typically, rackless stages are limited to significantly more expensive models, their advantage being smoother operation, greater durability and with no protruding rack, nothing to catch on or bump into. Coaxial coarse and fine focusing includes 1.5 µm precision tuning, 200 graduations, friction adjustment, rack stop to prevent slide and objective damage and 22 mm travel range.
Condenser & Illumination
The condenser is a height adjustable Abbe N.A. 1.25 condenser with iris diaphragm and filter holder. 3W Kohler LED illumination employs proprietary, new technology that is genuinely excellent. NeoLED™ is the result of Euromex's combined research into optics and LED. It combines a custom LED with a short focal length to achieve four benefits:
- Significantly greater light intensity
- Higher resolution optics
- Lower power consumption and
- Immeasurably longer lifespan - 50,000 hours, compared to 1,500 hours for a comparable 30W halogen bulb!
At Microscope.com, there was unanimous approval during side-by-side testing.
