The TC Series is available in brightfield, phase contrast and epi-fluorescence models. The TC5000 Series Microscopes have an integrated front mounted camera port with adapters available for 35mm, CCD/CMOS and other cameras.

The TC-5100 and TC-5200 Series inverted biological microscopes have been designed to be versatile, modular, and ergonomic systems that are ideally used for in research, educational and clinic applications. The TC-5100 and TC-5200 Series are well suited for a wide variety of routine examination of tissue culture, precipitates and high resolution video microscopy. The TC-5100 and TC-5200 Series microscopes deliver crisp, distortion-free, and high resolution images in multiple modes of operation. A wide range of components, objectives and contrasting methods are available to suit your specific application. Available models are Brightfield, Phase Contrast or Epi-Fluorescence in the TC-5000 Series.

The HD1500T can be mounted directly to any HDMI monitor or PC via USB 2.0 or HDMI connectivity and can be used with the provided USB 2.0 mouse, with this the user can access menus that provide all the features of the camera such as exposure, white balance, color control (red or blue), gamma, brightness, sharpness, saturation, denoise, color temperature plus allows the user to save images and videos directly on the full SD card due to the onboard operating system. You can flip the image horizontally, vertically, do a split screen where-in one side of the monitor is a live image and the other half is the captured image. You can also digitally increase/decrease the zoom if needed if your stereo system has reached its magnification potential, this will give you the added digital magnification needed. You can also superimpose a cross-line reticle directly on your live image, first click gives you a red line second click gives you a green line, and the third click omits the crossline. The live video and still shots can be saved directly on the removable full SD card for subsequent image capture. All this is achieved without the need for a PC. 

NOTE:
• 6MP Still resolution 3264×1836
• 2MP Live video 1920×1080 60 fps (frames per second) via HDMI

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.

The TC-5100 & TC-5200 Series inverted biological microscopes have been designed to be versatile, modular, ergonomic, system ideal for use in research, educational and clinic applications. The TC-5100 & TC-5200 Series are well suited for wide variety of routine examination of tissue culture, precipitates and high resolution video microscopy.

VIEWING HEADS Binocular models, the TC5100, TC5300 and TC5500, incorporate the MA814 Siedentopf-type binocular head while the trinocular models, the TC5200, TC5400 and TC5600 have the MA816/10 Siedentopf-type trinocular head. The MA816/10 uses an 80/20 beamsplitter that can be engaged for photo-microscopy. (100% to eyetubes or 80% to phototube and 20% to the eyetube.) Each microscope head has the eyetubes inclined at 30 degrees with the left eyetube having graduated diopter settings. The interpupillary distance on the viewing heads is adjustable between 53mm – 75mm. 
EYEPIECES 10X Super Widefield High Eyepoint eyepieces are standard and 15X and 20X eyepieces are also available as an option. A Super Widefield High Eyepoint 10X focusable eyepiece that accepts standard 25mm reticules is also available.
OBJECTIVE CHANGER Quintuple nosepiece provides effortless objective changes with smooth-operating, ball bearing mounted.
OBJECTIVES Meiji Techno America offers an assortment of Planachromat Infinity Corrected (ICOS) objectives for Brightfield, Darkfield and Phase Contrast observation modes.
STAGE The optional attachable mechanical stage measures 112mm(X) x 72mm(Y). It has ergonomically positioned right-handed coaxial drop down controls. It also accepts the following optional accessory plates: 35mm, 55mm, 65mm, Petrie Dish Holders, 96-well Terasaki Plate Holder, 1" X 3" glass slide holder, Hemacytometer holder.Slide, chamber, and petri dish holding plates of various sizes are available separately.  
CONDENSER The standard condenser has a working distance of 73mm.
ILLUMINATION A powerful 6 volt 30 watt halogen bulb with pre-centered socket provides enhanced image quality and brightness for the observation of specimens.
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.

PERFECT COLOR REPRODUCTION Meiji Techno's HD technology offers true-to-life reproduction oh image color. What you see on the monitor is what you get from the microscope eyepiece. No compressed date transmission, resulting in scientific-grade images.

1080P 60FPS FULL FRAME RATESWith 60fps at 1080p, the HD1500T presents a perfect combination of outstanding resolution and frame rate. This allows the user to fluently manipulate the live images without any lags.

HDMI+USB 2.0+SD OUTPUTMultiple output options are available for this powerful HDMI camera. HDMI 1080P, USB 2.0, or SD memory card can be used individually or all three SIMULTANEOUSLY.

DUAL FPGA PROCESSORSWith an innovative Dual FPGA processor architecture design, FPGA1 for image quality processing and FPGA2 for image output control, you get a high-speed preview without sacrificing image quality. It is the most powerful camera you deserve to have.

SMART PRESENTATIONCamera parameters such as exposure time, white balance, and gain are designed by default to operate automatically. Automatic optimum configuration is expected to be done in 0.015 seconds, and you'll find that the camera is easily managed from the start.

ADVANCED PARAMETER SETTINGFor users with specific requirements, the camera is designed with parameter setting buttons that enable manual adjustment of white balance, gain, saturation, Gamma and screen freeze.

PC TO TVImages are displayable on PCs and HDMI-installed TVs. All parameters can be controlled by the computer to adjust them to actual situations. This is advantageous in teaching and meeting applications.

On-board Video SavingThe SD card can save not only still images, but also dynamic images in 720P color definition, such that motion trails are recorded in fast speed and intact form.

LOW LIGHT SENSITIVITYThanks to its highly sensitive sensor, the HD1500T is capable of capturing low-light images rapidly. In darkfield imaging and even fluorescence, it will automatically increase the sensitivity, presenting low light images with clarity in high-speed preview mode.
