The Meiji ML5800 Series are advanced research-grade phase contrast microscopes ideally suited for the clinic, classroom or research laboratory. Available in either binocular or trinocular format, they include four phase contrast objective lenses set in a quintuple nosepiece. Available magnification powers include 100x, 200xS, 400xS and 1000xS oil along with 50W 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, reverse-facing quintuple 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.

Stage & Focus

The ceramic-coated, right-handed flat-top stage measures 171mm x 140mm with a 80mm(X) x 52mm(Y) range of movement and Coaxial, right-hand, drop down controls. Left-handed controls are available on request.

Condenser & Illumination

The Zernike type Abbe 1.25 NA phase condenser comes standard with a turret mount, centering telescope and green interference filter. Illumination is provided by a 50-watt halogen lamp house (not shown).
