BH #BR5102200 • MFR #5102200
BRESSER Erudit Basic 40-400x Binocular Microscope
Key Features
  • Two 10x Wide-Field 23mm Eyepieces
  • 360° Rotating, 45° Angled Binocular Head
  • 4x, 10x, 40x DIN Achromat Objectives
  • Dual-Speed Coaxial Focuser
Ideal for biological students and microscopy enthusiasts, the BRESSER Erudit Basic 40-400x Binocular Microscope is powered by a three AA batteries that allow you to take it into the field for hours of on-the-ground research and comes with a universal smartphone adapter to capture photos and videos of your specimens through the eyepiece for documentation and sharing. Its binocular head is set at a comfortable 45° angle to the body for a natural viewing position and can rotate a full 360° to make sharing the view among lab partners and colleagues simple and easy. It comes equipped with two 10x wide-field eyepieces that, when combined with the objectives, produce magnifications from 40x to 400x—making it ideal for viewing a wide variety of specimens, including thin sections, pond life, or skin and fur parasites. Employing a binocular head enables you to use the microscope with both eyes open, eliminating the eyestrain that is often associated with having to hold one closed for viewing.

Ideal for biological students and microscopy enthusiasts, the BRESSER Erudit Basic 40-400x Binocular Microscope is powered by a three AA batteries that allow you to take it into the field for hours of on-the-ground research and comes with a universal smartphone adapter to capture photos and videos of your specimens through the eyepiece for documentation and sharing. Its binocular head is set at a comfortable 45° angle to the body for a natural viewing position and can rotate a full 360° to make sharing the view among lab partners and colleagues simple and easy. It comes equipped with two 10x wide-field eyepieces that, when combined with the objectives, produce magnifications from 40x to 400x—making it ideal for viewing a wide variety of specimens, including thin sections, pond life, or skin and fur parasites. Employing a binocular head enables you to use the microscope with both eyes open, eliminating the eyestrain that is often associated with having to hold one closed for viewing.

Its dual-speed coaxial focuser features coarse and fine adjustments to ensure views are tack sharp. A large stage has integrated slide holders that can be used with one hand to make changing slides fast and a Vernier scale on the X and Y axes for measuring your specimens. The lower LED illuminator has a rheostat to control the intensity and is directed through a large 1.25 NA Abbe condenser with a simple iris diaphragm that gives you extreme control of the light coming through to the stage. The aperture of the condenser is larger than the highest-power objective, so you can be sure that the appropriate amount of light is transmitted to the specimen at all magnifications. 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 and extends battery life when working in the field.

Performance and Handling

  • Dual 10x wide-field eyepieces
  • Binocular head allows for both-eyes-open viewing—offering optimum comfort and reduced eyestrain
  • Eyepieces set at a 45° angle to place user's head in a comfortable viewing position
  • 360° rotating head make it easy to share around a table with lab partners and colleagues
  • Adjustable interpupillary distance and dioptric correction enable users with different size faces and eye strength to easily achieve tack-sharp views
  • Triple-objective turret offers three magnification choices to provide a wide range for a variety of applications: 40x, 100x, 400x
  • DIN standard 4x, 10x, and 40x objectives
  • 40x objective is spring loaded to prevent damage if it comes into contact with specimen or stage
  • Achromatic objectives provide clear and distortion-free views, especially at the edges
  • Hard plastic carrying case
