||Taking the "routine" out of routine research
INVERTOSCOPE Inverted Microscopes
has designed the INVERTOSCOPE Series to be the most durable and easy-to-use microscopes
for tissue culture work and other applications requiring inverted design and long working
The versatile and efficient INVERTOSCOPE combines the highest optical performance with
unsurpassed mechanical quality, and is backed by LOMO's unique lifetime warranty, the most
comprehensive in the industry. INVERTOSCOPE Microscopes come loaded with valuable extras
that would cost hundreds of dollars more from any other manufacturer – because we believe
that you are entitled to start using your microscope right from the box.
Besides standard objectives, eyepieces and sliders, every INVERTOSCOPE
model always comes with:
- A 15X focusing eyepiece with
two interchangeable reticles (a 10mm/100div scale and a 10mm x 10mm/400sq grid) for
convenient measuring and counting.
- A set of six high-quality
filters to enhance your image.
- A filter set for Polarization
(Polarizer and Analyzer).
- A centering telescope to
help you align the phase annulus rings.
- A replacement bulb for
- A set of stage inserts and
extension plates to accommodate a variety of sample vessels such as Petri dishes, flasks,
microtest plates, etc.
The INVERTOSCOPE provides you
with a choice of two easily interchangeable high-performance observation heads,
rotatable for comfortable viewing. LOMO's exclusive multilayer coating technology ensures
bright, flare-free images.
The large, sturdy 250mm x 265mm base,
with four rubber feet, provides maximum stability and insulates the INVERTOSCOPE from
vibrations, a particular advantage for photomicrography.
Smooth coaxial focusing is achieved by
the INVERTOSCOPE's wear-resistant roller-race mechanism that virtually eliminates backlash
and unwanted lateral shift of the specimen. One full revolution of the
large knurled knobs corresponds to 6.5mm (coarse) and 0.250mm (fine) of the stages
vertical movement. The coarse focus has a travel range of 19mm. The graduated micrometer
knob allows vertical measurements accurate to 0.002 mm.
The INVERTOSCOPE's quadruple revolving nosepiece and has a wide knurled grip for easy rotation
and features a precision ball-bearing mechanism with click stops for parfocality,
parcentricity and exact optical alignment.
Convenient, fatigue-free operation is
assured by low-position X and Y controls with knurled knobs. The precise, wear-resistant
mechanism allows smooth specimen cross-travel (120mm x 70mm) measured against two 1
mm-graduated scales with verniers accurate to 0.1mm. Can be installed at either right- or
left-hand control positions. The mechanical stage can accommodate a 96-well microtest plate
Set of Stage Inserts and Extension Plates
Accommodate a variety of vessels, such as Petri dishes, flasks, bottles, microtest and
microtiter plates, etc. The plain stage is 170mm x 180mm and can be extended to 300mm x
180mm to accommodate extra-long flasks and bottles.
ILLUMINATOR / CONDENSER
incorporates a high-performance long-working-distance condenser with two operating
positions: lower (W.D. 44mm) for observation of specimens in culture vessels, microtest
and microtiter plates, etc., and upper (W.D. 110mm) for working with high-profile flasks.
The aperture iris diaphragm and the slots for sliders, filters and polarizer are built-
The 12V/50W halogen lamp ensures sharp, bright images for all magnifications and contrast
techniques, and perfect color temperature control via an external
transformer for photomicrography. The heat-absorbing
filter protects your delicate tissue culture specimens from heat-induced damage.
The INVERTOSCOPE features an
array of TQA-Series Plan Achromats.
