The heart of the MT6000 series is a new PE-300W/LEDMT brightfield LED epi-fluorescence illumination system built into the Infinity Corrected Optical System. The illuminator has six positions for filter cubes with three included cubes: Basic Blue, Basic Green and one U excitation cube. Optional phase contrast and darkfield components are available to make a highly versatile microscope popular with both universities and laboratories. Available in binocular or trinocular. Lifetime Limited Warranty.
The microscope includes a Siedentopf-type binocular or trinocular head inclined at 30° with a diopter on the left eyetube for individual eye focusing. The interpupillary adjustment range is 53mm - 75mm. The optional Ergonomic Viewing Head can be adjusted within a range of 10-50° to suit individual preference. The DIN Infinity Corrected Optical System (ICOS) includes four semi APO F10x, F20x, F40x and F100x objective lenses set in a ball bearing mounted, quintuple nosepiece. U. Plan and U. Plan Phase objectives are also available.
An 80/20 beam splitter is employed for photomicrography in the trinocular head (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 flat top stage measures a generous 191mm x 126mm with 100mm x 100mm X-Y travel and coaxial, right-handed dropdown controls. Left-handed controls are available as an option. Dual-sided coaxial coarse/fine focus controls are standard, with large, ergonomic knobs for ease of use.
Condenser & Illumination
The condenser is an Abbe NA 1.25 with iris diaphragm and dove-tail mount. A Zernike condenser is available for phase contrast applications. The MT6200CL is equipped with PE-300L/LEDMT which is a LED fluorescence illumination kit, configured for fluorophores such as DAPI, FITC, TRITC & Cy5. Basic Blue, Basic Green and Basic UV cubes are included. The Basic Blue and Basic Green filter sets are designed primarily for viewing the fluorescence of a single fluorochrome. Both filters sets contain long pass emission filters which cannot exclude the fluorescence of a second fluorochrome which also may be excited. Additional filter sets are available to achieve greater signal to noise ratios.
