Motic AE31 Photometry And Dimensioning Microscope

The IonOptix-configured Motic AE31 inverted microscope provides an ideal platform for combined photometry and dimensioning measurements.  This microscope has been engineered to incorporate various unique IonOptix optical components and connectors in order to operate as the imaging component within our Calcium and Contractility Systems. It features upscale research functions, such as halogen Koehler illumination and epifluorescence capacity. The AE31 also incorporates Motic’s Color Corrected Infinity Optical System [CCIS®] to produce crisp, flat, and high contrast images.  We equip our microscope packages according to the specific demands of the proposed IonOptix system.  For calcium photometry systems, the AE31 comes configured with an Olympus fluorescence objective with high numerical aperture and UV transmission.  Properly equipped with an IonOptix fluorescence illumination system, the Motic serves as an exceptional option for researchers in search of reliable, high fidelity data acquisition at an affordable price.

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.
