Inverted microscopes are used for observing cell cultures. The NEXCOPE NIB610 is particularly suitable for this purpose and is very user-friendly and easy to handle. Like all devices of the NIB600 series, the microscope is also prepared for use in sterile workbenches (Clean Bench, Laminar Flow). The UV-resistant coating ensures that the workstation can be sterilised with UV light without any problems.
Using an inverted microscope, the sample is illuminated from above and viewed from below through the bottom of the sample vessel. With such an inverted design, the device enables the microscopy of plankton, microalgae and cell cultures directly in the culture vessel without opening the vessel. For example, cell cultures can be observed in so-called 96-well (Terasaki) plates, Petri dishes or special slides with attached wells. The sample does not have to be covered, and the thickness of the layer is also insignificant.
Accordingly, this special microscope is used in research institutes and universities, in veterinary medicine, agriculture, marine biology, limnology, aquaculture, etc.
The NEXCOPE NIB610 microscope is equipped with a quintuple nosepiece. A planachromatic 4x objective, as well as a 10x, 20x and 40x planachromatic phase contrast objective are already included in the scope of delivery. The objectives are designed for sample vessels with a base thickness of 1.2 mm. This means that standard slides or plates that rest on standard slides can also be used.
The eyepieces have a large field of view of 22 mm. The high field of view makes them very comfortable even for spectacle wearers. A rubber cup protects against contact. A diopter compensation from -5 to +5 can be set individually for each eyepiece.
The interpupillary distance can be adjusted between 48 mm and 75 mm.
The powerful 3W LED can be adjusted in brightness and provides optimal illumination.
The adjustment-free condenser allows for quick readiness for use. The phase contrast adjustment is also pre-adjusted and does not need to be changed when changing magnifications.
In addition to coarse focusing, fine focusing helps to bring the object into focus very precisely. A full turn of the fine focusing knob moves the stage up or down by 0.2 mm. On the right side, the fine focus can be adjusted with a finger. The tension of the coarse focusing knob can be adjusted as desired. The fine focusing knobs are held magnetically and can be set to the left or right, as required. The cross stage offers the possibility of inserting various specimen holders (optional). Thus, slides, 96-well cell culture plates or Petri dishes can be inserted. The microscope can also be operated without a stage. This provides a very large, flat surface, e.g. for larger culture flasks or stacks. If the condenser is removed, a working distance of 187 mm is achieved.
The NEXCOPE NIB610 is specially designed for use with C-mount cameras. C-mount adapters (1x and 0.5x) are available.
