DIC Condenser with optional water immersion front lens: Offers 0.9 NA, 3.7mm working distance with 40° access angle for patch clamping electrodes.

Dual Camera Adapter: Attaches to the left side port and provides two camera access to a primary image. Adapter also accepts dichromatic beamsplitters for simultaneous imaging.

Optional Bottom Port: Allows imaging devices to be attached in line with the optical axis of the objective producing the most efficient signal possible.

Lower Rear Port: Combined with the L-Shaped illuminator accepts the FluoView® 500 laser scanning confocal, keeping the sides of the microscope free for additional equipment.

Optional Motorized Accessories: Frame accepts several motorized accessories including condensers, fluorescence filter turret, shutters, and filter wheels.

Dual Viewing Attachment: For instruction/discussion. Includes arrow pointer with joystick control to aid communication. Observation positions are separated by twenty-five inches.

  • Lumen Dynamics X-Cite® 120 Metal Halide Illumination System* - the X-Cite 120 system utilizes a pre-centered lamp in combination with a liquid light guide coupling to the microscope. The unit can be used for transmitted or reflected light and is especially well suited for FITC and Rhodamine fluorescence applications.
  • U-HGLGPS® Fluorescence Illumination Source


  • New Relief Contrast condenser and objectives provide contrast and 3-D illumination effects (similar to DIC) in plastic vessels.
  • Long working distance Plan Fluorite Phase Contrast objectives (LCPLFL-PH) for culture chambers and multi well plates.
  • Super Long Working Distance objective SLCPLFL 40x/0.55 with 6.4mm of working distance adjusts for 0.0mm to 2.8mm cover glass or dish thickness.
  • LUCPLFLN objectives feature a focus-free correction collar design that maintains objective focus during adjustments for ease of use.
  • Newly designed Universal Apochromats (U-APON) achieve excellent transmission efficiency for fluorescence observation and measurement.
  • New Plan Apochromats (PLAPON), such as the PLAPO 60x/1.42 have high numerical apertures and field flatness correction for highly resolved, clear images.
  • Improved single line Total Internal Reflection microscopy (TIRF) illuminator provides easy laser set up and adjustment.
  • Unique Four line cell^TIRF illuminator is the only system on the market to offer true simultaneous and optimized multi color TIRF.
  • Four specifically designed objectives for TIRF offer high numerical apertures critical for proper laser alignment and specimen illumination: 100x APO/1.65 NA has the highest numerical aperture available, 150x/1.45 NA offers unsurpassed magnifications for single molecule imaging. The 60x/1.49 NA and 100x/1.49 NA have become the standard for TIRF microscope set ups.
  • The high-resolution PLAPO 60x W/1.2 NA "PSF" objective has a perfectly symmetrical point spread function for photon reassignment microscopy. Water immersion design reduces the spherical aberration normally introduced when focusing into live cells.
