The fluorescence microscope in the OBN-14 series is based on the usual high quality and
versatility of the OBN series. The outstanding, stable design in combination with high-quality optics set the standard in fluorescence microscopy in this class

The powerful, dimmable 20W halogen illumination unit (Philips) and a 100W Epi fluorescence incident illumination unit on the OBN 147/OBN 148 models ensure
perfect illumination and stimulation of your fluorescence samples
As an alternative, with the OBN 141 model we can offer you a fluorescence microscope
with a 3W LED transmitted illumination unit and 3W LED Epi fluorescence incident
illumination unit

This series has a professional Koehler illumination unit with an adjustable field diaphragm as well as a height-adjustable 1,25 Abbe condenser which can be centred and which has an adjustable aperture diaphragm
The extremely large mechanical stage with ergonomic, coaxial coarse and fine focusing
knob on both sides enables you to adjust and focus your sample rapidly and accurately

With the OBN 147/OBN 148 halogen variant you have a filter wheel which has up to
6 fittings. As standard this is fitted with a B/G or B/G/UV/V fluorescence filter. The
OBN 141 LED variant is fitted with a B/G fluorescence filter with a changeover slider
as standard. The changeover slider and the filter wheel mean that you can change the
stimulation filter quickly

A large selection of eyepieces, objectives, colour filters, darkfield condensers as well as a Butterfly tube, polarising and phase contrast units can easily be integrated thanks to the modular construction system
The centring objective for adjusting the fluorescence, a protective dust cover, eye cups as well as multi-lingual user instructions are included in the scope of delivery

A C-mount adapter is required to connect a camera. You can select this adapter from
the following model outfit list 

Scope of application

Haematology, urology, gynaecology, dermatology, pathology, microbiology and parasitology, immunology, Sewage treatment plants, Oncology, entomology, vets, water analysis and breweries


Specially for translucent, thin, low-contrast, challenging samples (e.g. immunofluorescence, FISH, DAPI staining, etc.)
