The XPL3200 series polarising microscopes are professional, research grade instruments equipped with a set of 4 (or 5) superb quality infinity optics, strain-free, plan achromatic objectives to provide very high quality imaging of a wide range of specimens. These are the very latest models in the GX Microscopes range of polarising microscopes and are of exceptional build quality and delivery superb polarisation images.
Each model in the range equipped with a smooth, rotating, graduated stage with locking screws, a rotating insertable analyser, Bertrand lens and click-stop rotatable polariser below the condenser.
These microscopes are suitable for the observation of all types of transparent and reflective polarised specimens such as polished minerals. This range is part of GX Microscope’s latest range of polarising microscopes and represents the very best value for money in this demanding area of technology. The standard model is equipped with infinity optics, trinocular head, a fine set of first class objectives giving a magnification range of 40X-600X (with options of up to 1000X).
One eyepiece is fitted with a measurement reticle with a crosshair for centering and measurement and includes a focussing adjustment. The grade of polarisers fitted is the highest available giving good extinction with crossed polars. The optics are also fully corrected so that changes in the viewing angle from the prism in the head during interocular distance adjustments does not cause any colour changes. Microscope comes complete with 1/4 & 1 Wavelength Retardation Plates, Quartz Wedge, Bertrand Lens.
The microscope is also supplied with an adjustable condenser with 30W illumination sources, koehler illumination and coarse/fine focus knobs with limit stoppers and tension adjustment. The incident light path in the XPL3230 model is introduced with a mirror attached to a lever. The microscope frame is substantial giving high stability and is particularly suitable for photomicrography.
