The Meiji ML2800 Series are research-level phase contrast microscopes that are ideal for education, research or laboratory applications. As an upgrade from the ML2600 series, they include four phase contrast objective lenses set in a quadruple nosepiece. Available in either binocular or trinocular format, the offer magnification powers of 100x, 200xS, 400xS and 1000xS oil along with 30W halogen illumination. Lifetime Limited Warranty.


The microscope includes a sliding-type binocular head with the oculars inclined at an ergonomic 30°. The left eyetube has diopter settings for easy individual eye focusing and the interpupillary distance is adjustable between 53mm - 72mm. 10x Widefield High Eyepoint eyepieces (F.N. 20) with a 21mm reticle mount are standard. Optional 15x and 20x eyepieces are also available. A centering telescope is also included. The DIN Infinity Corrected Optical System (ICOS) includes four Zernike Phase Contrast brightfield objectives (10x, s20x, s40x and s100x oil) set in a ball-bearing mounted, forward-facing quadruple nosepiece.

The optional trinocular head employs an 80/20 beam splitter for photomicrography duties (100% to eyetubes or 80% to phototube & 20% to the eyetube). Please note that you will need to purchase an appropriate trinocular adapter for your camera.
