EXCLUSIVE TO MICROSCOPE.COM - MADE IN HOLLAND
The Euromex iScope Laboratory microscope is a welcome addition to the US market. Made in Europe, it is the first serious challenger to the best known microscope brands for even the most demanding research applications. Superb optics, thoughtful design features and remarkably low prices present a compelling value equation. In short, you pay for the optics not a brand name.
With European craftmanship and optics, the Euromex iScope offers an intelligent design stuffed with features typically found in significantly more expensive microscopes. Infinity Corrected Optical System with quintuple nosepiece and plan objectives, 22mm field of view objectives, proprietary Kohler LED illumination, a big 216mm x 150mm rackless stage for safer performance, a sensor that powers off the microscope when you move away, and a proprietary in-housing cable storage system (CSS) for ease of storage.
At the heart of the iScope is the Infinity Corrected Optical System (IOS) combined with four IOS Plan objective lenses including PL4x, PL10x, PL40xS, PL100xS oil. 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.
Darkfield Options: For simple darkfield add the slider with darkfield stop (IS.9170) to enable darkfield with 4x, 10x and 40x objective lenses. For fulll BF/DF operation view the iScope IS.1150.PLI-BFDF microscopes. It is worth noting that the optional darkfield configuration is as good as both Zeiss and Olympus solutions and significantly better than other brands' efforts in the DF field.
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 Abbe N.A. 1.25 condenser with iris diaphragm and openings for optional phase contrast sliders. 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!
iCare Sensor - In addition, the iScope includes a motion sensor that detects when you leave the microscope and automatically switches off the microscope, saving power and extending the LED 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.
