Olympus Nomarski DIC Complete Kit for BH2

Post by hart3d »


This item consists of pristine mint-condition parts to do transmitted light differential interference contrast on an Olympus BH2 microscope. It includes all the items needed for DIC on a BH2.

BH2-UCD universal condenser for Nomarski DIC
BH2-NA Nomarski Intermediate Tube with Adjustable Nomarski Analyzer Prism
UNPD10 Nomarski Prism for DPlan Apo 10x objective
UNPD20 Nomarski Prism for DPlan Apo 20x objective
UNPD40 Nomarski Prism for DPlan Apo 40x dry
UNP40 Nomarski Prism for SPlan 40x
UNP60Oil Nomarski Prism for Splan Apo 60x oil
Instruction Manual "Differential interference contrast attachement for transmitted light Bh2-NIC".
Instruction Manual "BH2-UCD Universal Condenser"

Optically and mechanically perfect. No fungus or delaminations, etc. I have used this system very little, but very successfully, with SPlan Apo objectives (with no oil on the condenser). This is a unique and very rare set, especially in this mint condition.

$3000 includes shipping within USA.

I know this was long ago sold, but out of curiosity, are PlanApo objectives required for DIC on the BH2?
