The MAGUS Bio 230TL biological microscope is an essential tool in a sanitary control laboratory as well as a diagnostic or research center. The microscope has a trinocular head and a transmitted light source (LED), and it is suitable for observing translucent and transparent samples. In the basic configuration, the brightfield technique is used for observations. With additional accessories, microscopy techniques, such as darkfield, polarized light, and phase contrast, are available for further research.

Digital camera

Digital camera with a 2MP sensor for studying micro-objects using the darkfield or brightfield microscopy technique. The camera is equipped with a SONY Exmor backlit color CMOS sensor. This increases light sensitivity (2350mV at 1/30s) and improves image quality in low light. Optimal performance is achieved when working with objectives with magnifications of 40x, 60x, and 100x.

The MAGUS CDF10 camera allows you to display an image of an object on a computer monitor in Full HD 1920x1080px resolution, take photos, and record videos in different formats. Data transfer between the camera and computer is carried out via a USB3.0 interface with a data transfer speed of 5Gbps. At maximum resolution, video is displayed at 125fps with smooth transitions between frames. The camera is perfect for studying moving objects and can be used for lectures or presentations.

The camera can be installed in the trinocular tube or in the eyepiece tube of a microscope. A C-mount adapter is used for mounting a digital camera in the trinocular tube. The recommended adapter magnification is from 0.4x to 0.6x, which guarantees a wide field of vision without optical distortion. To mount the camera in the eyepiece tube, in addition to the adapter, you will also need an adapter ring matching the diameter of the tube.

Proprietary MAGUS View software is required to use the camera. An installation disk with drivers and software is included. Please note: before starting, the software must be calibrated for each objective you use. The calibration slide must be purchased separately.


The observation tubes can rotate 360°, which enables you to adjust the eyepieces to fit the height of the observer. It is possible to adjust the diopter settings for the left tube. There is a vertical tube for mounting a digital camera (not included).

The microscope uses infinity achromatic objectives, and 5 objectives can be mounted simultaneously into the nosepiece. One slot is left free for adding an additional objective. The revolving nosepiece with objectives is oriented toward the interior – the user can see the objectives inserted into the optical path. The magnification range of the microscope is 40 to 1000x, the upper limit can be increased up to 1500, 1600, or 2000x with additional eyepieces.


Thanks to the LED bulb, the color temperature does not change when adjusting the illumination. The LED bulb is 3W with a lifespan of 50,000 hours, and it is powered by the AC power supply.

The Abbe condenser has a slot for a darkfield or phase slider. With sliders, switching between microscopy techniques is much faster. The microscope is also equipped with a field diaphragm for setting up the Köhler illumination. The condenser is height-adjustable and can be centered.

Stage and focusing mechanism

The movement of the specimen is smooth and accurate. The mechanical attachment can be removed from the stage if needed (e.g., manual scanning). Moreover, a stage without a positioning rack is easier to work with.

The focusing knobs are coaxial and located on each side of the microscope so that the user can place their hands freely on the table. There are fine and coarse focusing knobs. The mechanisms move smoothly and, therefore, no further effort is required. There is a coarse focusing tension adjusting knob and a coarse focusing lock knob.


Optional accessories expand the capabilities of the MAGUS Bio 230TL microscope depending on specific applications. These include eyepieces, objectives, dark field and phase contrast condensers, polarization devices, digital cameras, calibration slides, etc.
