The MAGUS Bio 250BL microscope can be used for laboratory work scientific research and student teaching. It is designed to observe thin sections and smears of biological samples in transmitted light. The main method of observation is brightfield but it is also possible to use darkfield polarization and phase contrast techniques (with additional accessories).


The microscope comes with 4 infinity plan achromatic objectives. They produce well-detailed images with minimal distortion. The objectives are mounted in the revolver which is designed to hold 5 objectives at a time with one slot remaining free. It allows you to use an additional objective lens to achieve extra magnification within the magnification range. The revolving nosepiece is oriented toward the interior.

The position of the microscope head is comfortable for long work. The height of the eyepieces can be adjusted by rotating the eyepiece tubes 360°. The left tube has a diopter adjustment ring and a digital camera can also be mounted in it (camera not included).

The microscope magnification range is from 40x to 1000x. The upper range limit can be increased by adding additional eyepieces.


LED lights allow you to change brightness without changing the color temperature. The LED bulb has a lifespan of 50 000 hours and a 3W capacity. The illumination requires a 220V power supply to operate.

The illumination system also includes an Abbe condenser with an aperture diaphragm and a slider slot. It is possible to place either a darkfield slider or a phase slider in the slot. You will then be able to switch between different research techniques more quickly. The microscope is also equipped with a field diaphragm. Therefore you can use the Köhler illumination method.

Stage and focusing mechanism

The main mechanical feature of the microscope is the slide without a positioning rack. It is easy to operate and its mechanism requires less space. The sample is moved via a removable mechanical attachment.

The focusing knobs are located at the bottom where they are more convenient to use – you do not have to hold your hands in the air thereby allowing you to adopt a relaxed posture while working. The coarse focusing mechanism has a lock knob and tension adjustment. There is a fine focusing knob. The knobs are coaxially located on both sides of the microscope body.


If the power of the microscope is insufficient it can be increased with additional accessories. The MAGUS Bio 250BL microscope is available with optional eyepieces and objectives darkfield and phase contrast and polarization devices as well as digital cameras and calibration slides.
