MS – A SOLUTION TO INFERTILITY “LIVING WORLD”
Microscopes are increasingly used to observe molecular events, as well as cell components, and this is best done in real-time or by using time lapse footage of the same cells – so called live cell imaging.
PMA demands a high level of skill and careful manipulation of cells under a microscope. An important determining factor to the success of this procedure is the performance of the microscope and manipulator.
By combining an Inverted microscope OPTIKA IM-5 with an Eppendorf Micromanipulation system, the user has the perfect tool for PMA offering high optical performance and a reliable micromanipulator ensuring a perfect working environment.

STI – OBSERVING A MICROSCOPIC “LIVING WORLD”
Microscopes are increasingly used to observe molecular events, as well as cell components, and this is best done in real-time or by using time lapse footage of the same cells – so called live cell imaging.
This type of microscopy requires a very specialised instrumental set-up in order to track movements of molecules or organelles inside the cell or on the membrane.
These movements are easily missed if they are not followed closely within the same cell. That’s why OPTIKA has combined the suitable modular systems for carrying out live cell imaging on any cell, tissue or whole organism culture.

PANEL WITH LED ILLUMINATION INDICATOR AND ECO FUNCTION
IM-5 ensures significant repeatibility since the level of light intensity set can be seen at any time from the frontal panel in order to reproduce the same conditions. “ECO” button makes the microscope more environmentally sensitive, with automatic switch-off after 20 minutes inactivity.

POL SeriesPolarized light microscopy is an optical microscopy technique involving polarized light. Simple techniques include illumination of the sample with polarized light. Directly transmitted or incident light can, optionally, be blocked with a polariser orientated at 90 degrees to the illumination. These illumination techniques are most commonly used on birefringent samples where the polarized light interacts strongly with the sample and so generating contrast with the background. Polarized light microscopy is used extensively in optical mineralogy.
As polarised light passes through a birefringent sample, the phase difference between the fast and slow directions varies with the thickness, and wavelength of light used. The optical path difference (o.p.d.) is defined as

o . p . d . = Δ n x t

where t is the thickness of the sample.
This then leads to a phase difference between the light passing in the two vibration directions of

δ = 2 π ( Δ n x t / λ )

For example, if the optical path difference is λ / 2 , then the phase difference will be π , and so the polarisation will be perpendicular to the original, resulting in all of the light passing through the analyser for crossed polars. If the optical path difference is n x λ, then the phase difference will be 2 n x π , and so the polarisation will be parallel to the original. This means that no light will be able to pass through the analyser which it is now perpendicular to. The Michel-Levy Chart arises when polarised white light is passed through a birefringent sample. If the sample is of uniform thickness, then only one specific wavelength will meet the above condition described above, and be perpendicular to the direction of the analyser. This means that instead of polychromatic light being viewed at the analyser, one specific wavelength will have been removed. This information can be used in a number of ways:
– If the birefringence is known, then the thickness, t, of the sample can be determined
– If the thickness is known, then the birefringence of the sample can be determined
As the order of the optical path difference increases, then it is more likely that more wavelengths of light will be removed from the spectrum. This results in the appearance of the colour being “washed out”, and it becomes more difficult to determine the properties of the sample. This, however, only occurs when the sample is relatively thick when compared to the wavelength of light.

POLARIZED LIGHT
The polarized light microscope is designed to observe specimens that are visible primarily due to their optical anisotropic or birefringent features. Polarized light microscopy is perhaps best known for its applications in the geological sciences, which focusses primarily on the study of minerals in rock thin sections. However, a wide variety of other materials can be examined in polarized light, including both natural and industrial minerals, concrete, ceramics, mineral fibers, polymers, starch, wood, urea. The technique can be used both qualitatively and quantitatively with success, and is an outstanding tool for the materials sciences, geology, chemistry, biology, metallurgy, and even diagnostic (gout analysis).

FLUO SeriesEpi Fluorescence microscopes
A fluorescence microscope is an optical microscope that uses fluorescence and phosphorescence instead of, or in addition to, reflection and absorption to study properties of organic or inorganic substances. The “fluorescence microscope” refers to any microscope that uses fluorescence to generate an image. The Epi Fluorescence microscope is equipped with a fluorescence illuminator wich generates incident fluorescence light.highlight points of interest.
Principle
The specimen is illuminated with light of a specific wavelength (or wavelengths) which is absorbed by the fluorophores, causing them to emit light of longer wavelengths (i.e., of a different color than the absorbed light). The illumination light is separated from the much weaker emitted fluorescence through the use of a spectral emission filter. Typical components of a fluorescence microscope are a light source (HBO mercury-vapor lamps are common; more advanced forms are high-power LEDs), the excitation filter, the dichroic mirror, and the emission filter. The filters and the dichroic mirror are chosen to match the spectral excitation and emission characteristics of the fluorophore used to label the specimen. In this manner, the distribution of a single fluorophore (color) is imaged at a time. Multi-color images of several types of fluorophores must be composed by combining several single-color images. Most fluorescence microscopes in use are epifluorescence microscopes, where excitation of the fluorophore and detection of the fluorescence are done through the same light path (through the objective). These microscopes are widely used in biology and are the basis for more advanced microscope designs.

Epifluorescence microscopy
The majority of fluorescence microscopes, especially those used in the life sciences, are of the epifluorescence design. Light of the excitation wavelength illuminates the specimen through the objective lens. The fluorescence emitted by the specimen is focused to the detector by the same objective that is used for the excitation which for greater resolution will need objective lens with higher numerical aperture. Since most of the excitation light is transmitted through the specimen, only reflected excitatory light reaches the objective together with the emitted light and the epifluorescence method therefore gives a high signal-to-noise ratio. The dichroic beamsplitter acts as a wavelength specific filter, transmitting fluoresced light through to the eyepiece or detector, but reflecting any remaining excitation light back towards the source.
FLUORESCENCE
The fluorescence microscopy is the most demanding technique in biology and the biomedical sciences, as well as in materials science.
This method is capable to study organic and inorganic samples thanks to primary fluorescence (auto-fluorescence) or secondary (staining and labelling with fluorochromes).

VALUABLE SUPPORT TO MALARIA & TBC DIAGNOSIS
The B-383LD1 LED fluorescent microscope is a cutting-edge solution designed to enable rapid diagnosis of malaria and TBC, by using acridine-orange staining technique. The optional no cover glass W-PLAN 50x/0.75 objective is required to ensure excellent results for stunning images.

The aim is to reduce the costs to a minimum and provide a cost-effective, intuitive but performing solution, purposely designed for these applications.

MULTIPLE OBSERVATION METHODS AVAILABLE

GEM SeriesOPTIKA GEMOLOGY Series includes stereomicroscopes purposely designed for stone inspection and stone setting. Jewels and gems have a variety of grade, which ultimately influence their value and cost on the market; therefore it is important to have solutions that are purposely designed for gemology.

Choose between 20mm or 22mm field of view and simple or gemological stand, depending by the model.

Especially OPTIGEM Series offers the ideal configuration, with multiple options for illumination and contrast techniques, such as incident, transmitted and oblique brightfield / darkfield, polarization and immersion analysis. They come with a special optical condenser configuration to ensure real, perfect darkfield application. OPTIGEM-1 & OPTIGEM-2 are two-in-one gemology instruments that can be used both in vertical and horizontal position in a very easy way, just by turning one knob: the horizontal position extends the use of a gemological microscope, giving the possibility to perform immersion analysis by submerging a sample in liquid.

SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR SPECIALISTS
Gemological stereomicroscopes are meant to help with stone inspection and stone setting.
Jewels and gems have a variety of grades (or quality levels), which ultimately influence their value
and cost on the market; therefore it is important to have solutions that are purposely designed
for gemology. These stereomicroscopes are equipped with iris and darkfield condenser on the
bottom light source, and with a set of on stage tweezers to hold the stone in place.

OPTIGEM-1 & OPTIGEM-2 are two-in-one gemology instruments that can be used both in vertical and horizontal position in a very easy way, just by turning one knob (no disassembling and re-assembling operations are required). The horizontal position extends the use of a gemological microscope, giving the possibility to perform immersion analysis by submerging a sample in liquid. If the stone’s refractive index is close to the liquid’s one, immersion makes the interior more visible by reducing the effects of refraction and surface reflection. This enables you to see a gem’s inclusions or color distribution more easily. Immersion is also necessary to see crystal growth structures, which might help you separate natural from synthetic corundum. Features like curved growth striae in flame-fusion synthetics, or separation planes in assembled stones, are often far easier to see when the stone is immersed.

NCREDIBLY VERSATILE OPERATIONS
OPTIGEM Series offers multiple options for illumination and contrast techniques, such as
incident, transmitted and oblique brightfield darkfield, polarization and immersion analysis (only on Optigem 1 & 2).
They come with a special (see the dedicated chapter for further information) optical condenser
configuration to ensure real, perfect darkfield application.

ULTRABRIGHT LED CONDENSER FOR OPTIMIZED ILLUMINATION
An ultrabright LED-based electronic condenser with intensity control allows to switch from brightfield to darkfield;
it also produces perfectly the colourvof daylight. The condenser uses a new optical configuration especially created in order to obtain a perfect darkfield application

DEDICATED LED ILLUMINATION FOR OUTSTANDING RESULTS DURING GRADING
The requirement for a pure white (6.3000 K), particularly high intensity light is because only
incident light is seen: a flexible arm can be freely positioned and the brightness of the LED
illumination accurately adjusted. LED transmitted illumination is available through a diffusing disc
(for brightfield) or as a side-emitting LED ring (darkflield, with black background) only on Optigem 1 & 2.
A selector gives the chance to set the microscope in 3 configurations: brightfield only, darkfield
only, or both brightfield and darkfield

MET SeriesMetallography is the study of the physical structure and components of metals, by using microscopy. Many different microscopy techniques are used in metallographic analysis. Prepared specimens should be examined with the unaided eye after etching to detect any visible areas that have responded to the etchant differently from the norm as a guide to where microscopical examination should be employed. Light optical microscopy (LOM) examination should always be performed prior to any electron metallographic (EM) technique, as these are more time-consuming to perform and the instruments are much more expensive.
Further, certain features can be best observed with the LOM, e.g., the natural color of a constituent can be seen with the LOM but not with EM systems. Also, image contrast of icrostructures at relatively low magnifications, e.g., <500X, is far better with the LOM than with the scanning electron microscope (SEM), while transmission electron microscopes (TEM) generally cannot be utilized at magnifications below about 2000 to 3000X. LOM examination is fast and can cover a large area. Thus, the analysis can determine if the more expensive, more time-consuming examination techniques using the SEM or the TEM are required and where on the specimen the work should be concentrated.

MATERIAL SCIENCE / METALLOGRAPHY
Reflected light microscopy is the method for observation of specimens that remain opaque even when ground to a thickness of few microns. The range of specimens falling into this category is incredibly wide and includes most metals, ores, ceramics, many polymers, semiconductors (unprocessed silicon, wafers, and integrated circuits), coal, plastics, paint, paper, wood, leather, glass inclusions, and a wide variety of specific materials.

C-HAFReal-time Full HD Auto-Focus Inspection Camera
OPTIKA C-HAF is a real-time full HD auto-focus inspection camera, with 2 MP resolution to view crystal clear 1080p images/videos on HD monitor, through HDMI connection at 60 fps. Its angle of view is fully adjustable.
Achieve instant focus without the need to constantly adjust your lens with the incredibly fast focusing system (acquisition time is lower than 1 sec.) without the inconvenience of having to constantly re-adjust the lens focus.
Working distance is between 10cm and infinity, making it the ideal solution to inspect multi-layered objects, extremely quickly.
The camera is equipped with 1x-14x optical zoom and 1x-6x electronic zoom.
All functions are controlled directly from the screen, with the support of mouse, and images and videos can be directly acquired on SD card (mouse and SD card are included).
Main functions are:
– Possibility to perform automatic or manual white balance, independently setting RGB parameters for a perfect color reproduction
– Choose between automatic or manual exposure
– With HDR function, a sequence of images is captured at different exposures, and they are combined into a single image
– Trigger function allows the connection with an external controller and the file acquisition is possible with a determined sequence
– Possibility to set horizontal and vertical lines, in different colors and positions, to generate a custom grid directly on the HDMI screen
OPTIKA C-HAF comes with fixing holes to be connected with “custom” supports or brackets.
It is available also combined with a boom stand (as IS-02) or a compact stand with table clamp or wall-mount (as IS-03).

HR SeriesOPTIKA offers a wide range of hand refractometers to ensure incredibly rapid and convenient measurement of concentration in liquid and semi-solid samples, combining accurate performance with excellent repeatability. They give a direct reading of different scales: Brix, Oechsle, Babo, serum protein, refractive index and concentration of freezing liquids or alcohol. The sturdy case guarantees a reliable use on the field, and the built-in LED eases the reading also in dim light situations.The refractive index of a substance is related to its specific density; a refractometer is used to measure the purity or the concentration of a sample when mixed.
Refractometers are suitable for a wide range of applications, which includes the control of blend ratios in light industrial applications (such as glycols, battery acid, heat exchange fluids, coolants, quenchants and hydraulic oils) and represents the ideal solution for users working in the food industry (fruit, beverages, confectionery, jam, honey and other sugar based products).
