The Omano OM157B is for the more discerning microscopist with a desire for a higher quality image produced by semi-plan objectives. The microscope includes four semi-plan objectives and a full range of professional features to make for a high quality microscope with contemporary design. An added feature is an easily accessible lamp housing for convenient bulb changes.
With a Seidentopf microscope head inclined at a more comfortable 30 degree angle, the Omano OM157B-SP offers a combination of improved optics and more modern design over the Omano OM36 and OM88 series. Most important, are four semi-plan, parcentered, parfocal and fully coated objective lenses (4x, 10x, 40x spring, 100x spring oil immersion) that produce a better quality and flatter image than standard lenses.
WF10x/18mm eyepieces include eyecups for improved viewing while the head is easy to swivel through 360 degrees for flexible viewing positions or to share with a colleague. The head also includes interpupillary adjustment of 55-75mm in order to adapt to different viewer head sizes.
The quadruple nose piece is rear-facing to enable easier slide handling. Both the 40x and 100x objectives are spring-loaded to mitigate the risk of damage to the slide or objective. Magnification levels include 40x, 100x, 400x and 1,000x.
Stage & Focus
A large double-layered mechanical stage measures 140mm x132mm and includes spring-loaded slide clamp and dropdown coaxial controls for convenient 'eyes down' operation. The stage range of movement is 70mm x 30mm. Focusing includes high quality rack and pinion mechanics for longer life and coaxial coarse/fine focus controls for easier focusing.
The fine focus scale value is 0.002mm. Safety features include a rack stop to ensure that the stage does not impact with the objectives and thereby break the slides, and a slip clutch control to mitigate the risk of damaging the focus controls through over extension.
Condenser & Illumination
The condenser is a professional Abbe 1.25 N. A with iris diaphragm and filter for optimal adjustments. Transmitted illumination is 110V/220V 6V 20W halogen with variable intensity.
