The Brunel SP98i is a significantly larger version of our popular SP95i. Designed
as an inverted biological microscope its principal applications are in tissue culture
work and microbiology. The SP98i can take a wide array of flasks and culture bottles
and has a series of appropriate stage inserts.
The mechanical stage is substantial in size and the coaxial drop down stage controls
can easily be removed by loosening thumb screws to allow the examination of vessels
with a larger area than the stage. The condenser system is hinged close to the stand
body and can be completely removed from the stage area to allow tall flasks to be
positioned. The SP98i has a four position objective turret with long working distance
bright field and phase contrast plan achromatic objectives x10, x25, x40, and x10
and x25 plan phase objectives. The x25 and x40 phase objectives are additional accessories.
