Kern's OKM 172 is a metallurgical microscope with high quality halogen reflecting light illumination.

Made for experienced users, the OKM 172's bright halogen light makes it easy to see a specimen from all angles. As a metallurgical oscillscope, the illumination is designed to not cause unwanted reflection and is much more efficient than a standard compound microscope which lights from the bottom upwards.

As standard the OKM 172 is equipped with a wide angle binocular eyepiece and ships with four achromatic objectives. These objectives fit directly into the quadplex nosepiece, which can hold all four objectives at the same time.

The Kern OKM 172 microscope also includes a large size mechanical stage (200 x 140mm) a 5-filter unit (with blue, green, amber, grey and empty options) and is powered by standard 230V mains power.

This microscope is supplied as standard with Kern's 3 year manufacturer's warranty.
