  • Phaco1 EF 10x/0.25, 160/-. (has phase contrast ring inside)
  • Phaco1 EF 20x/0.32, 160/-. (has phase contrast ring inside)
  • Phaco1 L 32x/0.40, 160/-. (has phase contrast ring inside)
  • Fluoreszenz 40x/0.75 160/0.17

Magnifications: 40x, 100x, 200x, 320x, 400x.

Cube #1: DAPI. Numbers on the cube: 31000v2, C103167.

Cube #2: FITC: Cube is called I2/3. Number 513604.

  • Excitating Range: Blue (FITC).
  • Excitation Filter: Band Pass 450-490 nm.
  • Dichroic Beam Splitting Mirror: RKP 510 nm.
  • Barrier (emission) Filter: Long Pass 515 nm.
