More Views


The OBL-1 compound microscope series stands out through its infinity optical unit and is therefore ideally suited for all transmitted illumination applications for the most demanding users. The robust and ergonomic stand base guarantees safe and comfortable working.

Depending on the application, there is a choice of models with strong, continuously dimmable 3 W LED or 20 W halogen illumination (Philips).

The fixed, pre-centred and focusable 1.25 ABBE condenser with aperture diaphragm and field diaphragm gives you a simplified Koehler illumination, without having to move the centre.

These binocular microscopes are fitted with a diopter compensation. A trinocular head is available as an option, so that you can connect a camera.

A revolving unit for up to 4 lenses and a large specimen stage are included with delivery as standard.

The following optional accessory items are available: Various eyepieces, lenses, a complete polarisation kit, a phase-contrast unit as well as complete HBO and LED fluorescence kits etc.

The light is provided by a 20 Watt halogen lighting unit or by a 3 Watt LED version as an alternative.

A central feature of this adaptable, robust microscope range is the stable mechanism which can be adjusted precisely.
