The SteREO Lumar.V12, part of the FlouresScience family, offers fluorescence stereo-microscopy with 3-D images. SyCoP, a System Control Panel designed as a computer mouse, combines all the major functions of a stereomicroscope, such as zoom, focus, contrast and illumination. It also provides the latest data on object field, resolution and depth of field. The stand design ensures precision and stability, and allows continuous focusing from 350 nm to 340 mm. Furthermore, the scratch-resistant stage plate (250 x 410 mm) provides ample space in the object area. This microscope also offers automatic recognition of the fluorescence filters (AFR), individually adjustable zoom optics for the excitation beam path (iLite), LED illumination and contrast systems, an ergo-phototube, specimen protection, light and focus speed manager and a self-aligning HBO lamp.
