The M3600 series is their flagship student-proof offering, and the Swift Optical M3603C Cordless Monocular Microscope is a versatile model in the lineup. Built to hold up to use and abuse, the eyepiece and objectives are fixed in place while the stage is moved up and down to achieve focus.

Its monocular head is set at a comfortable 45° angle to the body for a natural and comfortable viewing position and is equipped with a 10x eyepiece that, when combined with the objectives, produces magnifications from 40x to 400x. The objectives are all parfocal and parcentered, so that little or no focus adjustment will be required when changing magnifications and the center of the view will remain consistent between objectives.

Its dual-speed coaxial focuser features a tension adjustment on the coarse adjustment so there is no slippage when the knob is released. A large 5.75x4.75" stage has integrated easy-to-use slide clips that can be used with one hand to make changing slides fast. The lower LED illuminator has a rheostat to control the intensity and is directed through a 0.65 N.A. condenser with an iris diaphragm to give you extreme control of the light coming through to the stage. Utilizing current LED technology delivers higher light efficiency than a conventional tungsten bulb with a cool operating temperature that prolongs specimen life when viewing live material, while also being energy efficient to extend battery life.

Use and Handling

  • Simple monocular head that is set at a 45° angle to place user's head in a comfortable viewing position
  • Triple-objective turret is mounted in reverse position to facilitate ease in changing slides with ball bearings for smooth and precise positioning of objectives
  • Color-coded objectives provide fast identification of the selected magnification
  • Environmentally friendly lead-free objective glass
  • Integrated camera port on top of the head allows easy use of an optional Moticam camera
  • Curved body with integrated carry handle promotes proper and safe handling

Optical Performance

  • 18mm 10x Pointmaster eyepiece has an in-view pointer
  • Three magnification choices provide a wide range for a variety of applications: 40x, 100x, 400x
  • DIN standard 4x (0.10 N.A.), 10x (0.25 N.A.), and 40xR (0.65 N.A.) objectives
  • Objectives are parfocal so little or no focus correction is required when switching between magnifications and parcentered so the center of the view will remain the same when changing objectives

Stage and Illumination

  • Dual-speed coarse and fine coaxial focusing mechanism produces tack-sharp views for all users
  • Tension adjustment on the focuser eliminates stage drift when the knob is released
  • Stage moves up and down to achieve focus—eyepiece and body remain fixed in position
  • Large 5.75 x 4.75" stage easily holds specimens other than slides
  • Built-in NA 0.65 condenser with iris-style diaphragm with lever control allows user to improve their subject's contrast for better views
  • Variable-intensity lower LED illuminator provides transmitted specimen illumination

Power

  • Cordless design makes the microscope ideal for field work
  • LED illuminator is more energy efficient than traditional bulbs, greatly increasing battery runtime
  • Runs on three included rechargeable AA nickel hydride batteries that provide up to 40 hours of runtime
  • 110 VAC battery charging cable included
  • Use plugged in within a classroom or lab setting without damaging batteries for extended runtime
  • 5 LED battery status indicator
