The Motic BA210 was designed for high school, college and Medical School applications. Using Motic's outstanding Color Corrected Infinity Optical System (CCIS), the entire optical path of the microscope has been optimized for maximum optic quality and digital image fidelity. Designed for a high level of performance and user comfort, this microscope is an ideal bridge between advanced student work and high-end microscopy applications.
It includes is a 3.1 megapixel digital compound microscope with infinity corrected CCIS optics and four EF-N Plan objective lenses set in a quadruple nosepiece for a popular school microscope. Powerful 6V 30W Halogen illumination. 5 year warranty.
The BA210 includes a Seindentopf head with integrated 3.1 megapixel camera built around a large 1/2" color sensor. This is important since most 3.1 megapixel microscope cameras include smaller sensors with lower quality resolution. The head is inclined at a more comfortable 30° and includes two WF10x/FN20mm eyepieces for improved field of view. There are dual diopters for individual eye focusing and interpupillary adjustment of 55mm-75mm.
The heart of the optics is a CCIS infinity corrected system with four infinity corrected CCIS EF-N Plan objective lenses set in a reverse facing, quadruple nosepiece for more convenient sldie handling. Magnification levels include 40x, 100x, 400x and 1,000x. The 1.25NA Abbe condenser is focusable and centerable. There is a built-in mechanical stage with drop down coaxial controls.
The stage measures 175mm x 140mm with vernier scale and a range of movement of 76x50mm. Rack and pinion focusing includes drop-down coaxial coarse/fine controls. Professional Koehler illumination is powered by 6V 30W halogen with intensity control or select 3W LED illumination. The power supply is switchable 110v-220V.
The camera includes a built-in 1/2" for significantly better quality than the 1/3" typically found in 3.1 megapixel microscope cameras. Maximum resolution is 2048 x 1536 pixels. The camera has fast refresh rates for better quality live imaging: 10 frames per second @ 2048x1536, 40 frames per second @ binning. Software is the well-established Motic Images PLus 2.0ML for Windows and Motic Images Plus 2.0 for Macintosh.
The Motic Images Plus 2.0 software is a powerful software suite that has impressed us. Users will find a familiar interface matched to either Windows or Macintosh OSX operating environments. The software allows for automatic object or cell counting, image and data capture, easy export of reports to spreadsheets , measurements, counting and even MP3 functionality so you can play music while you are working. Add narration or other sound clips to any image using this software this digital microscope turns into a true multimedia apparatus! Features include Measurement, Image Comparison for forensic or other applications, Editing and Enhancements, Counting and Auto Segmentation that facilitates counting. In our opinion, these are are unequaled features that are not found in competing products at this price point.
Measurement: Motic Measurements are easy to use and accurate owing to the quick, calibration process using Motic's certified calibration slide. Possible measurements include: Line, Circle, Rectangle, 3-Point Circle, 3-Point Arc, Polygon, Ellipse, Angle as well as Irregular shapes. All of the results are stored in a Measurement Table which can be exported to Excel with one click.
Image Comparison: A useful feature includes image comparison that enables users to compare differences in specimens over time or side-by-side. Different methods can be used to compare including: 'Subtract'; 'Difference'; Multiply'; Proportional.
Image Enhancements: With several filters, including a customizable filter, Motic Images Plus 2.0 allows the user to edit, enhance or change a captured image. Text, Stamp and Paint tools turn any captured image into a finished project or evaluation for presentation. This feature should not be underestimated! Essentially, the software has an integrated word processor designed for combining captured images with comments - perfect for in-lab results or classroom use - and far simpler than a separate WORD document.
Multi-Media Imaging: Motic's own SFC file extension allows a narrated sound file to be placed directly onto the image. Send an image with narration on several points by email to anyone. The SFC file also allows measurements or any image enhancements to be removed or changed at a later date.
Counting: An introductory counting function is also included with the software, allowing users to calculate objects in the image.
Auto-Segmentation: This is a neat feature that highlights items for easier counting
