Panthera C

The Motic Panthera is the latest series of biological microscopes from Motic which has been carefully designed with an attention to practicality, functionality and aesthetics.

Panthera C is a classical all-rounder with full Koehler illumination and light interchangeability. The microscope includes a 25º inclined, 360º rotatable Siedentopf observation head specially configured to save storage space. The premium CCIS Plan UC optics offer unprecedented brightness, contrast, sharpness and flatness over the entire field of view, and support other contrast techniques such as Phase Contrast, Darkfield, Polarizing and LED Epi-Fluorescence. A safety design is incorporated into the microscope arm to prevent the observation head from falling when the head locking screw is loosened.

Panthera C is packed with smart and user-friendly features including the new patented rackless coaxial mechanical stage, the most compact size in its class with durability and reliability. The microscope illumination is interchangeable between 30W Halogen/ 3WLED or LED at different colour temperature with the new light module drawer located at the base. The LED light indicator on the nosepiece displays the light intensity of the microscope, controlled by the manual light management system.

An extremely efficient low-power illumination system allows the Panthera C to operate cordlessly on a mobile battery pack for several hours continuously.

Digital documentation can be realized with the integration of the Panthera C Trinocular and Moticam attachable digital microscopy camera. The RedDot award winner Panthera L with the built-in SMART cam digital head is available for an innovative digital microscopy experience.
