The BA310 from Motic is designed specifically for the rigors of daily routine work in the demanding applications of Universities, Clinics, Laboratories, and any other life science or medical application requiring quality optical performance. Using Motic's Color Corrected Infinity Optics (CCIS®) with newly designed EF-N Plan Achromats, this model's full Koehler configuration provides maximum illumination quality for even the most demanding samples. Also, the BA310's upgradeability to include additional contrast methods and discussion devices, ensure this model will offer long term functionality to all user levels in a variety of applications.
To improve the overall optical performance of the BA310, Motic introduces a newly designed generation of Plan Achromatic Objectives made of high quality optical glass; CCIS® EF-N Plan. These new lenses are now multi-layer coated for improved contrast to enhance images even with weak slide stainings. Together with a new calculated tube lens, the result is a fully corrected, perfected intermediate image without colored fringes.
The new standard eyepieces, N-WF 10X/20 with high eyepoint for eyeglass wearers, also made of high quality optical glass, provide consistent diopter adjustment for both eyes. This enables perfect usage of reticles for measuring, counting, etc. Lockable eyepieces prevent inadmissible removal and confirms Motic's dedication to student proof quality.
Designed with an ergonomic viewing angle of 30º and incorporating an interpupillary distance of 48-75mm, the BA310 observation tubes guarantee fatigue-free viewing for hours. A large field of view (20mm) enables fast and comfortable screening. All standard eyepiece tubes now offer an extended “butterfly” swivel adjustment to increase the viewing height to accommodate individual user’s positioning. The trinocular tubes allow digital documentation by using a wide variety of digital cameras, with 20/80 or optional 0/100 light splits for the trinocular exit.
The BA310 offers multiple illumination options, such as the Koehler 6V/30W Halogen or 3W LED.

Motic is committed to the concept of continuously improving its models, especially after carefully looking at the increasing demands of its customers and their applications. The successfully established BA310 model was no exception, and for this reason Motic has launched the new Elite model BA310E.
Once again Motic has challenged itself to stride ahead of the competition.
The BA310Elite model introduces superior improvements both in optical and mechanical performance. The model now incorporates a lead-free manufacturing process in accordance with current RoHS standards, and follows the optical features and performance derived from the flagship model
BA410. The ELITE model’s addition of a new rackless stage concept without prominent gear rack allows an even more convenient use of the x/y movement. For full freedom of Illumination options, the new model has a complete and easy interchangeability of its 6V/30W Halogen bulb with LED modules.
New EC Optics
Motic’s new generation of EC Plan Achromat objectives sets a new price-performance standard in optical quality. With excellent spherical aberration correction to significantly improve field flatness and resolution, the EC optics offer superior colour fidelity through new multi-layer coated lenses. A lead-free manufacturing process according to RoHS standard sets new significant features for these CCIS® objectives, derived from the flagship model BA410. Significantly increased working distances of the objectives reduce contamination risk when changing from oil lenses to dry lenses. To protect the system from fungus growth in high-humidity environments, an anti-fungus treatment is applied to prolong the life of both microscope and objectives.
The new rackless stage enables a convenient movement of the x/y stage without prominent gear rack interference; while a new specimen holder design gives a soft but solid grip to the glass slides. These new mechanical improvements greatly enhance user safety in educational environments of schools and Universities. An optional 2-slide holder is also available when large throughputs of samples are required.
The importance of LEDs as safe and long-term illumination devices has increasingly become the norm in educational and clinical microscopy environments. Nevertheless, experienced users may still prefer the “warm” Halogen illumination with a large portion of long wavelengths. To cover this situation, Motic has implemented a full interchangeability between its Halogen and LED light sources. Coming with a standard 6V/30W Halogen bulb, the BA310Elite lamp socket also accepts a new LED module, which can be inserted instead of the Halogen bulb. The choice of (2) different color
Phase Contrast -Slider solution
Offered as an option, phase contrast is available for objectives EF-N Plan Phase 10X/0.25 and EF-N Plan Phase 40X/0.65.
Darkfield - Slider solution
Darkfield is possible with a separate DF slider (upto 40X, max. N.A. 0.65).
Convenient and easy, the BA310 polarization system consists of a polarizer, placed on top of the collector lens, and the analyzer placed between the head and body.
Phase Contrast - Turret condenser
This Turret condenser contains the light rings for all EC-H Phase lenses 10X / 20X / 40X / 100X as well as a Dark field stop and a Bright field position.
