Ken-A-Vision TU-12021C-230 overview

  • 1Description

To allow more than one person to view specimens at the same time, the TU-12021C-230 PrepScope 2 Microscope from Ken-A-Vision has two 45° inclined eyepieces with pointers that are facing in opposite directions. With these 10x eyepieces, the microscope provides a total magnification of 40x, 100x, and 400x. It features 4x, 10x, and 40xS achromatic objectives, and a 360° rotating head. The retractable 40xS objective has a spring-loaded lens which will retract when it touches the slide in order to protect the lens and the slide. The included objectives adhere to DIN microscope objective standard which means that you can use any DIN objective with this microscope without worrying about your microscope ever becoming obsolete. The supplied Achromatic objectives reduce color distortions introduced by imperfections in optical elements better than regular objectives and provide higher contrast images. The parfocalled and parcentered design allows for switching objectives without having to realign your sample and without losing focus.

To view details of our specimens more easily, the microscope features an LED illumination system with adjustable brightness and a separate switch. The bright white light from the bottom LED emitter is focused with a light shaping lens and can be further collimated using a diaphragm with five apertures of different sizes. The focusing system has a coaxial coarse focus adjustment with large rubberized knobs.

The microscope also features a 4.25 x 3.75" aluminum stage with two spring-loaded clips for holding your specimen slides securely. The frame of the microscope is made of cast aluminum with a cream enamel finish. Included with the microscope is a USB cable, a wall charger with a European and a German wall plug, three rechargeable AA batteries, and a dustcover.
