A class leading inverted microscope offering upscale research functions in the routine realm.
The AE-30/31 system is designed to accept an attachable Epi-Fluorescence illuminator capable of handling fluorescence microscopy markers FITC to GFP. The attachment inserts into the back of the AE-30/31 stand with filter selection located near the focus control mechanism.
The AE30/31 is an inverted microscope for the routine realm, but offers upscale research functions, such as fluorescence and an externally mounted and centrable 30W/6V halogen Koehler illumination. Complementing the uniform illumination is the ELWD 0.30 N.A. condenser with its 72mm working distance for large sample and carriers, which can be adjusted and centered to provide the optimum amount of illumination for each sample. Furthermore, the condenser is equipped with a slider stop for the equipped standard centrable PH 1 and PH 3 Phase slider. An optional LWD 0.50 N.A. condenser [WD=28mm] is available should the need arise.
Driven for applications, the AE30/31 incorporates the Colour Corrected Infinity Optical System [CCIS®] to power system expansions and to produce, along with the CCIS® Plan Achromat inverted objectives, crisp, flat and high contrast images in field flatness up to F.N.22. These images can be viewed for hours upon hours in fatigue free manner thanks to the comfortable 45° observation angle and viewing height of 380mm [400mm – trinocular], which is the ideal height from the laboratory tabletop to the users’ eyepieces. Assisting the angle is the Siedentopf system [50-70mm] for setting the correct interpupillary distance and the adjustable high eye point WF10X eyepiece, which can be adjusted ±5° for individual astigmatism and aligning reticules.
Supporting all these applications and functions is the AE30/31's stable inverted "Y" designed stand. The inverted "Y" provides the necessary stability and weight distribution to handle the attachment of Epi-fluorescence and other accessories. The stand features low position focus mechanisms to alleviate wrist strain while adjusting the focus at 1mm minimum increments throughout the 10mm stroke range. The stage sits at a height of 207mm for rapid sample changes. A universal mechanical stage [tilted adjustment] is available as an option plus a series of Petri dish holders.
The CCIS optics allows new accessories and functions to be incorporated into the AE30/31 inverted microscope. The CCIS infinity design has succeeded in achieving longer working distance objectives with higher numerical apertures. This represents a significant development in optical performance and versatility.
The design of the AE30/31 inverted microscopes optimally integrates all functions enabling effective ergonomics and maximum expandability. The wide base provides strength and rigidity. In addition, the inverted "Y" support in the back of the microscope provides extra lateral stability.
The AE30/31 has been designed to meet the needs of demanding users. The size of the microscope is compact to minimize the footprint and conserve limited desk space available in modern laboratories.
The ergonomic design has made AE30/31 compatible with the manner in which you work. The coaxial coarse/fine focusing knobs, controls for the attachable mechanical stage and light intensity, are placed conveniently at your fingertips to minimize user fatigue. The ideally positioned focus knobs and stage controls make their manipulation stress free.
provides bright, even illumination at any magnification. The "only one in its class" centerable lamp is housed externally and has an externally operated mechanism for control of all facets of illumination. A segmented illumination intensity indicator is ideally located for easy viewing.
The revolving side facing nosepiece accepts five objectives. It runs on ball bearings and has internal click stops so that the image remains centered after each change in magnification.
