digital camera, long working distance, ergonomic
The TDM E 50i is a complete system for comfortable and efficient tetrad dissection. This third generation design incorporates Nikon´s newest and most ergonomic laboratory microscope, the Eclipse E 50i with infinity optic.
The TDM E 50i includes a precision joystick micromanipulator, a holder for Ø 100 mm Petri dishes, and mechanical stage with "click-stops". The microscope is complete with long working distance optics for viewing through the inverted dish and growing medium.
The Precision Micromanipulator is mounted on the left side of the stage and both move simultaneously, when the microscope is focused, thus there is no need for a fixed stage. Other than the previous designs, the sideway movements are led by ball bearing slides, whereas the joystick enables for a smooth and hysteresis-free adjustment of Y-axis and Z-axis. The X-axis is adjusted by turning a knob.
The Mechanical Stage has low coaxial control knobs which are tension adjustable. The stage is indexed with "click-stops" every 5 mm on the X and Y-axes. Ø 100 mm Petri dishes of various manufacturers can be used, because of the unique design of the dish holder.
