Motic® BA310 Professional Light Microscope

motic ba310 biological light microscope

The Motic® BA310 is designed for the rigors of daily routine work in the demanding applications of Professional Cytology, Hematology and Pathology laboratory settings. The Motic® CCIS® Optics (Color Corrected Infinity System) with newly designed EF-N Plan objectives provides high resolution and excellent optical performance for all microscopy needs. The BA310 is upgradeable to include additional contrast methods and multi head viewing. These features ensure this model will offer long term functionality to all user levels in a variety of applications.

The BA310 is a superior microscope meeting the rugged demands for daily work needs in a Professional laboratory setting. The BA310's 30W illumination provides the user with a powerful and adjustable light source to meet both delicate and detailed lighting requirements for all sample types. The fully featured Koehler illumination of the BA310 helps in highlighting even the weakest stained specimens.

The Motic® Color Corrected Infinity Optics CCIS® and the EF-N Plan Achromat objectives provide optimal image contrast through newly designed multi-layer lens coatings. The fully corrected tube lens and subsequent intermediate image without color fringing is now fully accessible through both eyepiece and the trinocular port making digital images as crisp and clear as those seen through the eyepieces. The BA310's design also includes a standardized (DIN/ISO) photoport exit. The BA310's large, hard coated and chemical resistant stage, with an expansive 76x50mm travel range, includes a new slide holder with improved tighter grip. This ensures easy and repeatable scanning of numerous slides in all daily routines. A complete range of options and accessories are available to configure the BA310 to your application. See all options available on the BA310 Microscope Systems Diagram .

Siedentopf Observation Tube
Trinocular Head

Siedentopf Observation Tube

The BA310's sidentopf observation tube is designed with an ergonomic viewing angle of 30° and incorporating an interpupillary distance of 55-75mm. The BA310's observation tubes guarantee fatigue free viewing for hours. An optional large field of view (20mm) enables fast and comfortable screening of a specimen. The trinocular tubes allow digital documentation and integration to a wide variety of digital cameras, with optional 20/80 or 0/100 light splits for the trinocular exit.



BA210 standard eyepieces

Eyepieces

The standard eyepieces are made of high quality optical glass and have a high-eyepoint for eyeglass wearers. The eyepieces provide consistent diopter adjustments for both eyes. This enables perfect usage of reticles for measuring, counting, etc. Standard lockable eyepieces guard against inadmissible removal.



Condenser

Reversed Quintuple Turret Revolving Nosepiece

The BA310 has the capability for mounting up to five quality objectives, allowing easy access to the slide. Precision positive click-stop mechanism ensures precise alignment of objectives.

Objectives

To improve overall optical performance of the BA310, Motic® introduces a newly designed generation of Plan Achromatic Objectives made of high quality optical glass: CCIS® EF-N Plan. These new lenses are now multilayer coated for improved contrast to enhance images even with weak slide staining. Together with a newly calculated tube lens, the result is a fully coated, perfected intermediate image without colored fringes. The trinocular BA310 gives digital access to the same for even sharper imaging and improved digital output quality for professional results at the student level. RMS thread.

Fine/Coarse Coaxial Focusing

Coaxial fine and course focusing mechanism is precision brass manufactured using a reliable triangular rail system, with adjustable tension, providing durable operation of the microscope. The focusing range is 25mm with minimum increments of 2µm.

Motic Digital BA310 microscope condenser

Condenser

To ensure the best possible illumination quality, the Digital BA310 has a full Koehler feature giving complete freedom to set the height of the condenser, so counting chambers with unusual height dimensions can be used.


Illumination

Illumination

The BA310 introduces a new collector lens assembly with a secure, threaded holder for the frequently used blue daylight filter, which is an integral part of the illumination package. The fixed cap prevents the filter from dropping and breaking when the instrument is moved or stored. The BA310 offers two illumination options to use on the microscope- 6V/30W Halogen or 3W LED.



Mechanical Stage

Mechanical Stage

The BA310 offers an optional left/right hand control and the slide holder enables consistent sample movement across a 76x50mm range with a stage of 175mm x 145mm. The BA310 also offers a hard coated surface, resistant against routine usage abrasion and most lab chemicals.

Light source with integrated power supply

The universal power supply (110-240V) is integrated inside the frame for increased stability. The 6V/30W halogen lamp with intensity controls provides bright and even illumination at any magnification. Alternatively, a bright white 3W LED illumination is available.

Anti-Fungus Coating

To protect the system from fungus formation in high-humidity environments, an anti-fungus coating is used to prolong the life of both microscope and objectives.

Multi Viewing Devices

Multi Viewing Devices

The Motic® BA310 offers multi-viewing devices for teaching especially in Pathology and Histology. For BA310 model, 2 options are available. Depending on the teaching situation in your laboratory, MVH-2 can be realized as a face-to-face or a side by- side solution. With a viewing field of 20mm provided by the Motic® BA310's widefield eyepieces, maximum information will be given to the observer. Pointers provided in red and green color.

Mechanical Stage

Simple Phase Contrast

Offered as an option, simple phase contrast is available for magnification 10x and 40x.

Phase Contrast

Also available is the 5-position turret type phase contrast condenser and CCIS® phase plan objectives.

ba210 simple darkfield slider

Simple Darkfield

Darkfield is possible with a separate DF slider.

BA310 polarizer - analyzer

Simple Polarization (not applicable with LED illumination)

Convenient and simple, the BA310 polarization system consists of an analyzer filter placed between the head and body; and a polarizer filter placed on top of the collector lens.

Documentation

The importance of documentation has expanded into every aspect of microscopy, as has the method of documentation. The BA310 is available with both a traditional method (photomicrography) and a digital method.

ba310 digital documentation trinocular microscope

Standard Photomicrography

Selecting the trinocular version of the BA310 allows the user to capture the images observed through a photomicrography system. The system consists of a mechanical adaptation combined with a photo eyepiece (2.5X or 4X) The T2 adapter referring to the camera model is supplied by the camera manufacturer.

Digital Documentation

The integration of the BA310 trinocular microscope and Moticam® series of digital cameras delivers crisp and live images. All Moticam® Cameras come equipped with software to transfer the BA310 into an analysis and documentation station. With a USB2.0 output to the computer, the system provides high resolution imaging in both real time and capture modes. Should you select a Motic® or third-party camera, Motic® provides a range of CCD-adapters covering which are necessary for trinocular port attachment. Another option is the BA310 digital microscope with integral 3.0 megapixel camera, listed below.
