Here is a Nikon LV100 Brightfield Darkfield BF DF Polarization Microscope Pred NI
Setup for Brightfield and Darkfield studies.
This microscope system can be used for imaging of material or biological samples on prepared slides where a higher degree of contrast is required for sample imaging.
With currently installed objectives this microscope has a total magnification of 50x to 100x.
This microscope system includes the LV-ECON Controller for illumination and motorized objective turret switching.
The mechanical XY stage will accommodate prepared slides.
Setup also for polarization.
This microscope can also study anisotropic specimens, and this technology has made advancements to the biological field to study sub-cellular assemblies. Two polarizers are needed, one before, and one after the specimen called the analyzer. The analyzer will recombine the phases to create detailed contrast, to analyze the anisotropic sample.
Pred LV100NDA (LV100N POL)
This Nikon LV100 BF DF Polarization Microscope is in good working order with all aspects of the unit tested and fully working.
Microscope optics have been cleaned professionally by our technician under a class 10,000 clean room hood.
Please see the exact video and photos below.

*SM* Small Crate
OB Packed Weight - 300lb
Here we are showing you our standard packing process
1. All items are different, but they all follow the same principle when packaging.
2. Start with a well-constructed crate
A well-constructed crate would consist of 1/2” to 5/8” Plywood with framing. We generally purchase our crates from a third party who specializes in custom crates.
3. You always want the Instrument to not be directly on the wood deck of the crate. This is done by placing it on foam, inside of the crate. We use 2” 1.7 lb. density foam which works great. It provides cushioning and enough firmness to support the Instrument.
4. The next step is to make sure there is nothing on the deck of the Instrument and the Head/ Arm is secured. In some cases there will be multiple arms to secure but for this example there is only one. The reason for this is so there is no free movement during transit which could cause serious damage to the Instrument.
5. The next step is to make sure your Instrument is covered in either a pallet bag or shrink wrap so no dust or foreign object will get into the crate.
6. The next step is to secure the instrument inside the crate by bracing. We use a method of 2x4’s which have 1” foam shrink wrapped to them so no piece of wood touches the actual instrument.
7. Final step is to photograph everything inside the crate and then seal it with screws.
