new BA300 biological microscope delivers uncompromised optical clarity thanks to its integrated Color Corrected Infinity System (CCIS). The unit's superior ergonomic design and robust mechanical structure make it an ideal instrument for laboratory and research applications and a great platform for future expansion.
Motic's own CCIS optical design incorporated into the BA300 maximizes optical compatibility as well as the opportunity for future additions. The microscope can be fitted with optional accessories such as simple Phase Contrast, Darkfield as well as Polarizing equipment without affecting optical quality.
The BA300 is designed with the user in mind. Careful consideration has gone into the ergonomic design of the microscope as a whole as well as the placement of such vital elements as the focusing knobs and the coaxial mechanical stage controls. This design effort culminates in a microscope, which provides fatigue free operation even over long periods of usage.
The wide arm provides solid support and stability, perfect for high-magnification operation while the inverted "Y"design of the back gives the microscope a small footprint saving vital desk space in modern laboratories.
The light source is arguably the most important factor in any microscope. The BA300 features a powerful 6V/30W Quartz Halogen Koehler illumination system providing bright and even illumination at any setting and magnification. This flexible light source with built-in intensity control is perfect for all-round microscopy - not just Brightfield.
In order to maintain absolute parfocality, the BA300's eyepieces are mounted in a Siedentopf head allowing the tube length to remain a constant even when interpupillary distance adjustments are made. Adding to the ergonomic theme of this microscope, the head is inclined at an optimal 30i for posture management.
A trinocular version is also available featuring a professional light distribution slider of 100% binocular or 100% photo making it ideal for photo microscopy applications.
With Widefield 10X eyepieces as standard allowing for a field of view of 20mm, the BA300 offers impeccable optics as well as a large overview of your slide.
Independent diopter adjustments on each eyepiece - rather than on the eyepiece tube- is a professional feature usually reserved on more expensive models.Users wearing eye-glasses will find our eyepieces' higheyepoint design very comfortable to use. Various reticules for measurement and counting are also available for these eyepieces.
This professional design of the nosepiece means that when using the BA300, the user has more space to change specimen slides therefore limiting any damage to the slides or the objectives. The nosepiece itself features a ball-bearing mechanism with positive click-stop to ensure that each change of magnification is accurate and centered.
The BA300 features a large (174mm x 145mm) hard coated mechanical stage with a travel range of 76mm x 50mm. Controlling the movement of the stage is made easy with low-positioned coaxial control knobs. The stage surface is protected with a special hard coating protecting it against abrasion and fungus growth.
The standard substage condenser is mounted to the microscope using a dovetail mount and can be adjusted through a rack and pinion mechanism ensuring a durable and smooth range of adjustments.
An optional condenser with a slot for the Motic 3-position phase contrast slider (Ph10X, BF, Ph40x) can easily be fitted for quick phase contrast microscopy.
A further option on the BA300 is Motic's phase contrast turret condenser with a numerical aperture of 1.25 and five different positions. The turret condenser comes with two choices for Ph10x, Ph20x, Ph40x, Ph100x, BF or Ph10x, Ph40x, Ph100x, BF, DF. These condensers offer maximum flexibility when rapid and easy changes between illumination and contrasting
275 techniques are required.
The BA300 has an arsenal of high-quality objectives to choose from. Motic CCIS EF Plan objectives offer brilliant, crisp and high-contrast images with high working distances and numerical apertures. Optional Motic CCIS Plan Achromat and CCIS IP Plan Phase Achromat objectives are also available for even more outstanding optical performance.
