Abstract

A microscope whose construction is made from a water tight, dust sealed case where the microscope optical components are embedded in a block (Fig. 1) of machined material or attached to a shock proof frame. The case may be treated with a scratch free and chemically inert surface that may be decontaminated or sterilized. Based on light emitting diode (LED) (8) illumination the microscope has a folded light path (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) to be compact, thus light and easily portable. By using an especially efficient light condenser system (7) designed for maximum use of the available light and choice of a small but powerful LED (8) the microscope may be battery powered for long periods of time extending into days. Preset controls reduce the amount of manipulation to make operation as simple as possible. The X-Y stage (12) is similarly simple and also dust and water protected (13).
