Free Motion magnetic locking clutches By pushing a button the microscope will float weightlessly and can be locked in any desired working position. Manual and motorized zoom The magnification is continuously adjustable. From overview to details. Vario objective lens Without moving the microscope or changing the working position the area of treatment stays in focus. LED inside This innovative illumination module provides a homogenous illuminated field of view with excellent color rendition and high contrast.
