The AZ100 Multizoom represents a new concept in zoom microscopes. It covers an extremely wide range of magnifications, from 5x to 400x, effectively combining the advantages provided by stereo zoom microscopes and compound microscopes. Thanks to a smooth zooming mechanism and a unique triple nosepiece, the AZ100 can continuously switch magnifications, extending from macro to micro observation of the same specimen.
Wide Range of Magnifications
By combining built-in 8x zoom optics, which provide from 1x to 8x magnification, with a three-position objective nosepiece, the AZ100 enables observation at the highest magnification ratio of any such device in the world. The objective lens lineup consists of 0.5x, 1x, 2x, 4x, and 5x lenses. When combined with AZ-W 10x eyepiece lenses, the AZ100 covers everything from low, though medium to high magnification. In the range of 5x to 500x (the latter includes the 1.25x device magnification of the coaxial illuminator). The zoom knob incorporates an engageable click-stop mechanism for measuring and reproducing magnification settings.
