(1) Polarization models supplied with 20 W halogen illumination except BB.4xx1-P-LED versions, which are supplied with LED’s with a very similar light spectrum to the halogen illumination and supplied with a cross hair eyepiece for centering

EYEPIECE(S)
Wide field WF10x/18 mm secured eyepiece with pointer for monocular models. The eyepieces of the binocular and trinocular models are supplied without pointer

HEAD
Monocular models with 45° inclined tubes. Binocular and trinocular models have 30° inclined tubes, interpupillary distance is adjustable between 48 and 75 mm and equipped with a ± 5 diopter adjustment on the left tube. All heads are 360° rotatable and secured with a screw. The BioBlue microscope can also be supplied with a discussion head. The trinocular head has a fixed light path beamsplitter (50:50) and generates an erect image. Models with an integrated USB-2 camera are supplied with a 3.2 MP 1/2” CMOS sensor with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution.

NOSEPIECE
Reversed quadruple nosepiece on ball bearings. Models for polarization are supplied with a swing-out analyzer 

OBJECTIVES
All models are supplied with semi plan 4x/0.10, 10x/0.25 and S40x/0.65 objectives. Models with an S60x/0.85 or S100x/1.25 oil immersion objective are also available. The S40x, S60x and S100x oil immersion objectives are spring loaded.

All optics are anti-fungus treated and anti-reflection coated for maximum light throughput

FOCUSING
Coaxial coarse and fine adjustments with 200 graduations. Precision 2 μm per graduation, 0.4 mm per rotation. 

Total travel approximately 23 mm. Supplied with an adjustable rack stop to prevent damage to sample and objectives.
The coarse adjustments are equipped with friction control

POLARIZATION EQUIPMENT
The swing-out analyzer is mounted in a slider under the head. The rotatable 360° polarizer fits on the collector lamp

POLARIZATION MODELS
Polarisation microscopes are often used in petrology and geology  to identify rocks and minerals in thin sections. 
It is a standard optical microscope equipped with a circular 360° rotating stage, strain free objectives, a polariser to generate polarised light and a second polariser - called the "analyzer"
 in the light path between objective and eyepiece

CONDENSER
Height adjustable Abbe condenser N.A. 1.25 with iris diaphragm and filter holder

ILLUMINATION
Binocular and trinocular models are supplied with an adjustable 1 W NeoLED illumination system for increased light output. Monocular models have a standard adjustable 1 W LED illumination. All BioBlue microscopes – except the polarization models – are supplied with rechargeable batteries and integrated power supply for cordless operation. The models for polarization are standard supplied with a 20 W halogen illumination for correct color rendering and an integrated 100-240 Vac power supply. On special request LED illumination is also available 

CAMERA AND SOFTWARE
Models with integrated 3.2 MP CMOS USB-2 camera are supplied with the ImageFocus 4 capture and measurement software. Besides capturing of images and videos, this software allows measurements on still and live images and to perform annotations on captured images. Compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10, both 32 and 64 bits configurations

PACKAGE CONTENT
Supplied with power cord, dust cover, a spare fuse, user manual and 5 ml immersion oil for models with S100x objective. All packed in a polystyrene box 

Models for polarization with a halogen illumination are supplied with a blue filter, models with LED illumination are supplied with a white filter, all models are supplied with a cross hair eyepiece for centration
