Panthera S

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 S is the model for education in schools and routine laboratory use. The microscope includes a 25º inclined, 360º rotatable Siedentopf observation head specially configured to save storage space. The CCIS Plan SC optics offer unprecedented optical quality in its class and support other contrast techniques such as Phase Contrast, Darkfield and Polarizing. A safety design is incorporated into the microscope arm to prevent the observation head from falling when the head locking screw is loosened.

An extremely efficient low-power illumination system allows the Panthera S to operate cordlessly on a mobile battery pack for several hours continuously. The LED indicators on the nosepiece display the light intensity of the microscope.

Panthera S comes with LED illumination and built-in low positioned coaxial mechanical stage.
Panthera E is a variation with the advanced rackless coaxial mechanical stage and the interchangeable LED illumination.

Digital documentation can be realized with the integration of the Panthera S Trinocular microscope 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.
