A complete solution
All included, in the right place: this is the philosophy underlying this instrument. XDS-2 is equipped with a full series of objectives, that covers most standard applications. The translating stage is included in the standard equipment, and so is a set of 4 objectives (4x and 40x for brightfield; 10X and 20X for phase contrast).
Every control is easy to reach, every component has been designed with ease of use in mind. The focusing and specimen translation controls are designed to allow to rest the wrists on the table. The light intensity regulation is placed very close to the focusing knobs. The specimen stage is fitted with a special glass insert, that allows to see the objectives, for immediate identification of the magnification setup. The head implements an extremely innovative design, that permits adjustment to compensate for operator height.
Plan-achromatic infinity corrected optics, bright 30W halogen illuminator, phase contrast sets, holders for specimen slides, flasks, Petri dishes, trinocular head for photo/video applications. These are the features of XDS-2, a powerful, complete and innovative instrument, designed to set a reference standard for advanced routine microbiology.
