Clinical & Lab Microscope Platform
Motic’s premier BA410 is the flagship model of its BA Upright Compound Series, and exhibits Motic’s advancing optical development approach in creating this high-end microscope. Designed for multiple disciplines from University through Clinical, Laboratory, and Research applications, the BA410 offers true professional quality with a full complement of accessories, making it a valued addition for any biological application. The BA410, when combined with any Moticam digital camera, also provides a powerful documentation tool for reporting or teaching assignments.
Through continuous professional usage, ergonomic functionality is increasing in importance in the design of a quality microscope stand. With this in mind, Motic’s BA410 design was formulated around actual user parameters in order to maximize comfort during prolonged usage times.
Designed with a comfortable viewing angle of 30°, the standard BA410 eyepiece tubes (binocular and trinocular) offer a 22 mm Field of View (FOV 22). The interpupillary distance can be adjusted in the range of 48-75mm. Aside from the regular Binocular tube, Trinocular photo tubes can be obtained with 3 optical beam splitter options:
- Standard configuration: 100:0 / 20:80
- Recommended for Fluorescence: 100:0 / 0:100
- Maximum flexibility: 100:0 / 20:80 / 0:100
Motic’s Infinity Corrected CCIS Optical system with a field flatness up to 22mm and the high eye point principle of the BA410’s eyepieces ensure true colour and sharp images, while minimizing eye fatigue and strain. As a standard, diopter adjustment is integrated to assist spectacle wearers and for reticule usage.
For prolonged viewing demands, the BA410 offers a complement of ergonomic viewing head options, with a FOV 22 and an interpupillary
distance of 55-75mm. Two different ergonomic tubes are available:
- The Binocular Ergo tube has a variable viewing angle of 4°-30°.
- The Binocular Ergo-Plus tube also offers an additional extension movement of 35mm.
The Motic BA410 offers a new class of EC-H optics that sets the standard in price-performance in optical quality. Multilayer coated glass for enhanced contrast and lead-free manufacturing according to RoHS standards are significant features of this new class of Motic CCIS objectives. With excellent spherical aberration correction to significantly improve each lens’ field flatness and better resolution, the EC-H optics offer superior colour reproduction and fidelity.
The BA410 introduces a new collector lens assembly with a secure, screw-on holder for frequently used daylight or other image enhancement filters - an integral part of any illumination package. The complete inner light path of the microscope has been enlarged to minimize diffraction effects at high illumination apertures. The Halogen illumination is a 6V/30W Koehler system. A LED version with 2 Colour temperature options of 6000K and 4500K is in preparation.
Today, accurate documentation is becoming an increasingly important part in most natural science applications.
The combination of the BA410 with a member of the Moticam series of digital cameras delivers excellent live images, which can easily be stored for future usage. All Motic cameras come equipped with software to transform the BA410 into an analysis and documentation station. Motic offers a complete range of digital cameras starting with a basic resolution of 1.3MP (CMOS), up to the Research grade Moticam Pro Line (CCD) with a maximum of (at the moment) 5MP, including Monochrome and Cooled versions. These Moticam cameras deliver sharp live images with easy post-capture handling.
Phase Contrast and Darkfield
For Phase Contrast and Darkfield, the BA410 offers a slider solution of easy handling for single Phase contrast lenses, using an optional slot condenser for each magnification of 10X, 20X, 40X and 100X in combination with phase slider PH1, PH2 and PH3. The new EC-H Phase lenses give a phase image with improved contrast and flatness. A respective Darkfield slider can be used from 4X to 40X lens magnification (N.A. up to 0.65).
As a standard, positive phase contrast lenses are supplied. Negative phase contrast is available on request. For more advanced Phase contrast demands, a turret condenser with phase rings for all objectives, including a DF stop, is also available. Like the slider solution, the turret carries the light rings matching both positive and negative phase lenses.
The modular concept of the BA410 allows an easy upgrade to an EPI-Fluorescence microscope by using the fluorescence attachment. This device may carry up to 4 filter cubes. A complete range of filter cubes is available, covering all routine applications from UV up to NIR excitation. Supplied with band pass barrier filters, multi colour applications can also be performed.
