Brightfield:
The simplest of all the optical microscopy illumination techniques. Sample illumination is transmitted (i.e., illuminated from below and observed from above) white light and contrast in the sample is caused by absorbance of some of the transmitted light in dense areas of the sample. Brightfield microscopy is the simplest of a range of techniques used for illumination of samples in light microscopes and its simplicity makes it a popular technique. The typical appearance of a brightfield microscopy image is a dark sample on a bright background.

Polarizing Light:
A type of optical microscopy techniques involving polarized light. Simple techniques include illumination of the sample with polarized light. Directly transmitted light can, optionally, be blocked with a polarizer orientated at 90 degrees to the illumination. More complex microscopy techniques which take advantage of polarized light include differential interference contrast microscopy and interference reflection microscopy.

Gout Testing:
Medical professionals use gout microscopes assembled specifically for identifying gout or CPPD (pseudo-gout) crystals suspended in synovial fluid. Lab technicians prepare a wet smear on a microscope slide with the fluid and use polarized microscopy to determine the presence of sodium urate crystals (gout) or calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate or CPPD within the fluid. CPPD crystals are small rods, squares, or rhomboids and are usually harder to identify without a gout or polarized light microscope. Polarizing filters can be easily adjusted when using the gout microscope. These microscopes are used for identification of crystals present in body fluids.

The interpupillary distance is adjustable between 53mm – 75mm. An 80/20 beamsplitter for the trinocular tube can be engaged for photo work. (100% to eyetubes or 80% to phototube & 20% to the eyetube.) The optional Ergonomic Viewing Head has the inclination adjustable from 10 to 50 degrees to fit any size user.
EYEPIECES 10X Super Widefield High Eyepoint eyepieces F.N. 22 are standard.
OBJECTIVE CHANGER The smooth-operating, ball bearing mounted, quintuple nosepiece provides effortless objective changes.
OBJECTIVES Meiji Techno offers an assortment of S. Planachromat Polarizing Infinity Corrected objectives.
STAGE Ceramic coated left or right-handed, flat top stage 190mm x 140mm with travel: 80mm(X) x 52mm(Y). Ergonomically positioned coaxial drop down controls.
CONDENSER Strain free Abbe 1.25 NA Condenser with iris diaphragm in dovetail mount.
ILLUMINATION Powerful 30 watt transmitted light Koehler halogen illumination provides enhanced image quality and brightness for the observation of specimens.
ACCESSORIES All MT9500 Series models come with an analyzer, full wave plate polarizer, and 29mm filter tray in lamphouse assembly.
PHOTOMICROGRAPHY Meiji Techno offers a broad range of digital video cameras which offers excellent sensitivity, high resolution and a wide dynamic range for the most demanding brightfield and darkfield microscopy applications including clinical pathology and cytology, life sciences and geology. Some models has included software, that can preview and capture still shots and live videos to a PC or Mac with USB port or HDMI connectivity.
