Ergonomic ARCTYPE tube

To create a comfortable working position Petunia MCX50 offers as standard a binocular ARCTYPE tube. With the possibility to set the eyepieces in two different positions, small and tall users can have an ergonomic posture for long working hours without getting tired. With the interpupillary distance (48-75 mm) and the diopter adjustment the eyepieces easily fit to every user. Eyepieces are suitable to spectacle wearers without any need of additional eyecups.

SMART SENSE - Clever energy saving

Petunia MCX50 also features our new and clever SMART SENSE system. The infrared sensing device is located in the base on the front. It senses movement and when there is no movement in front of the microscope for 15 minutes, the SMART SENSE system shuts down the illumination automatically.

Quadruple nosepiece

The reversed angle nosepiece is designed for 4 objectives. A rear-facing nosepiece creates more space on the stage and a perfect sight onto your specimen for much easier handling.


Abbé Brightfield condenser with aperture iris diaphragm nA 1.25. The scale for each objective ensures a quick preset for an optimal viewing result. The available slot on the condenser allows an easy upgrade of the microscope. Sliders are available for BF/DF, BF/PH and BF/DF/PH attachments (optional)

Ergonomic and secure

The coaxial coarse and calibrated fine focus controls are located on the right and on the left side of the microscope base. With the standard autofocus stop unit collisions between the objective and the specimen are prevented which avoids possible damage of both. The built in tension adjustment controls the mobility of the coaxial coarse. Ergonomic arrangements of all the control elements ensure an effortless operation.

Safety ON/OFF device
The power switch is combined with the brightness adjustment for protecting the eyes. In order to turn the device off, the brightness adjustment has to be on the lowest position. With the safety rotary control device no harm can come to the eyes of too bright light at full power while turning on the microscope.

Anti-Fungus Treatment
Working in hot and humid climate is no problem for the Petunia MCX50. Thanks to a special Anti-fungus treatment which is provided for the optical system no damage will come to the optics and the picture stays bright and clear.

The space-saving construction makes it possible to work in tight spaces and as a solid lightweight it makes it easy to transport and store. As an option we offer an alu case for secure transportation.
