The body is the heart of our modular zoom stereo microscope design. It contains the objectives and prisms that capture the image of the specimen, magnify it, and direct it to the eyetubes. The body by itself cannot be used to view an object; it also needs eyepieces that further magnify the image and allow the viewer to see, and it must be mounted on a stand that has a mechanism for raising and lowering the body to bring the specimen into focus.
Zoom stereo microscope bodies are the most flexible because they offer a wider range of magnification than turret (EMT) or fixed (EMF) bodies. Much like the zoom lens on a camera, zoom objectives increase and decrease magnification progressively, causing the specimen to grow or shrink smoothly in the eyes of the viewer. Our zoom microscopes hold their parfocality or focus throughout the zoom range. Not all microscope brands seem to do this which is one reason why our products retain their value for many, many years.
Meiji Techno offers EM Series zoom stereo microscope bodies with a wide range of magnifications and working distances. EM bodies come with dust covers and rubber eyeshields. A variety of stands are available for an additional cost.
