EXCLUSIVE TO MICROSCOPE.COM - MADE IN HOLLAND

iScope Summary

We are not given to frivolous superlatives, but the new Euromex iScope Laboratory microscope is superb. Superb optics and superb price. Made in Holland and well-known throughout Europe, Euromex now offers a serious alternative to better known Life Science microscope models in the US, such as the Olympus CX41, Zeiss Azio Lab 1, Nikon Eclipse E400 and the Leica DM1000. In other words, the iScope is a serious Life Science research microscope, but at a remarkably low price.

With European design and optics, the Euromex iScope offers an intelligent design stuffed with features typically found in significantly more expensive microscopes. Infinity Corrected Optical System with plan objectives, 22mm field of view objectives, the best Kohler LED illumination we have seen, a big 216mm x 150mm rackless stage for safer performance, a sensor that powers off the microscope when you move away, and proprietary in-housing cable storage for ease of storage.

Designed for serious research laboratories, the iScope is a refreshing new addition with excellent optics and remarkable price.

iScope Brightfield/Darkfield Optics

At the heart of this iScope BF/DF configuration is a darkfield technique found only in Zeiss and Olympus models and which creates spectacular results. With an easily switched out condenser, the microscope offers versatile BF/DF operatiion. As with all iScopes, the Infinity Corrected Optical System (IOS) combined with four IOS Plan objective lenses including PL4x, PL10x, PL40xS, PL100xS oil. The 100x objective has a special iris inside for even greater contrast that is particularly useful for live blood analysis. Set in a quintuple nosepiece and with an extra large 22m field of view, these objectives rank alongside competing products that carry significantly higher price tags. Extra wide field EWF10x/22mm eyepieces lend a genuinely comfortable viewing experience in a 30° inclined Seidentopf head. Interpupillary adjustment is 47-76 mm with diopter adjustment on both eyepieces for convenient focusing. All optical components are anti-fungal treated.

Stage & Focusing

The iScope features a large 216mm x 150mm rackless mechanical stage with 79mm x 52mm 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 2 µm precision tuning, 20 mm travel range, friction adjustment to suit each viewer and rack-stop for protection of slides and objectives.

Condenser & Illumination

The condenser is an In height adjustable Cardioid mirror Oil-immersion condenser N.A. 1.25 with built-in 5 W LED illumination that prevents negative sample heating while maximizing the light intensity. As a result, it is ideal for live blood analysis among other phase contrast applications. 5W LED adjustable illumination is built into the Cardioid mirror oil-immersion condenser for a fully professional darkfield solution. There is also 3 Watt NEO-LED™ adjustable Köhler illumination with field diaphragm and built-in power supply. Both illuminations are switchable 85-240 Volt operation.

The 3W Kohler NeoLED™ 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 solid 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.

Other Features

iCare Sensor - In addition, the iScope includes a sensor that detects when you leave the microscope and automatically switches off the microscope, saving power and extending the life even longer. A thoughtful addition not typically found in competing microscopes

Cable Storage System (CCS) - the CCS allows you to store the cable inside the back of the microscope housing, making for much easier storage. Again, a thoughtful and useful feature.
