Ken-A-Vision TU-17018C-230 overview

  • 1Description

The 45° inclined viewing TU-17018C-230 CoreScope 2 Microscope from Ken-A-Vision features a mechanical stage, 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. Both the turret and the included objectives adhere to DIN microscope objective standard. This 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 lenses are also coated with special coatings that protect their surfaces against mold in high humidity and high heat regions. The parfocalled and parcentered design allows for switching objectives without having to realign your sample and without losing focus. The focusing system has coaxial coarse and fine focus adjustments with a scale.

To view details of your specimens more easily, the microscope features a white LED illumination system with adjustable brightness and an On-Off switch. The bright white light from the bottom LED emitter is shaped with a 1.25 NA Abbe Condenser and can be collimated using a variable iris diaphragm.

TThe microscope also features a 5.1 x 4.7" mechanical stage with two low position coaxial X-Y motion controls and a bracket for holding your specimen slides. The frame of the microscope is made of cast aluminum with a cream-colored enamel finish. Included with the microscope is a USB cable, a wall charger, three rechargeable AA batteries, and a dustcover.
