Thorlabs' T-Scopes are microscopes designed to provide and optical system that is easy to both operate and modify. These microscopes can be adapted for a variety of applications including wide-field or laser scanning microscopy. The housing is equipped with an SM1-threaded port, making it possible to build custom imaging and microscopy systems.
The T-Scope is available with either manual or motorized Z-axis translation and consists of a tube lens system (ITL200) designed for parfocality. These microscopes are mounted on Thorlabs' Manual or Motorized Focus Blocks
(Item #'s MGZ30 and MGZ30-MOT respectively), which provide up to 30 mm of travel along the Z-axis. A non-rotating, fine-focus-adjustable, SM1-threaded (1.035" -40) port with included C-mount adapter is provided at the top of the
T-Scope for direct mounting of cameras or detectors. Without the C-mount adapter, the T-Scope can accept custom optical systems built upon the SM1 tread standard. The fine focusing adjustment at this port allows for precise adjustment through the image plane. Alternatively, if desired, one can gain access to the SM2 (2.035" -40) thread standard by removing the SM1-threaded port and adapter from the top of the T-Scope.
A 5-objective turret with M26 x 36 TPI threading is included with the T-Scope. For use with RMS-threaded objectives, five RMSA7 adapters are also provided.
The motorized version, TSCOPE-MOT incorporates a stepper motor and built-in encoder for positional readout along the Z-axis. the TSCOPE-MOT is powered by USB and includes software and a user interface.
