Optics Accessories / Condenser / LED light source.
The Gradient Contrast Illuminator, when
mounted in lieu of the OEM condenser in infinity-corrected microscopes,
provides contrast enhancement similar to that achieved by DIC, phase
contrast, and other contrast-enhancement methods. The IS-GCI is
rotated in the OEM condenser mount until contrast is maximized.
The top of the condenser is threaded for the attachment of oil and dry
It doesn't attenuate as much light as typical contrast methods, providing
more light / superior contrast for high-magnification contrast imaging.
