Quite minimal and lightweight, clean + modern lines, wide field of view, adequate optics provide ample contrast depth, and light.
Table stand feels a bit crude, halogen option only, mags limited to 16x.
The Marco Ultra series provides a much improved optics system on a lightweight and minimal frame- limited to 16x.
Marco has accomplished quite a feat with their Ultra Slit Lamp Series. They have managed to create a minimalistic microscope that feels lightweight and is designed with what feels like half the parts of a traditional microscope, and yet have managed to greatly improve optical performance, coverage, and comfort. All things that make the 2B Ultra slit lamp one of our favorites in our range of slit lamp microscopes. Marco says that a new multi-layered, multi-coated system transmits light more efficiently, producing a measurable 20% increase in optical resolution and clarity- furthermore resulting in a 19% increase in light transmission, a 15% expanded field of view and a 14% increase in depth of field. We’re not really sure what these percentages are to mean in quantifiable senses nor are we clear what these are improvements from, but one look through the optics and you’ll take their word for it. The Ultra series does indeed deliver optical clarity far improved from their own prior models, and the majority of other slit lamp microscopes that we’ve tested from the same era. In order to do this however, they haven’t had to build an immense frame nor larger oculars; the Ultra series is minimally thought-out in the best of ways. Everything you expect to be on a ‘Haag (Tower)-Style’ slit lamp is present and where you want it- but somehow it looks and feels like the entire system is made up of half the parts and materials than what you’re used to. The chassis is well-thought out, made-up of no more than what’s necessary to produce an elegant curve from the base to hold the oculars. The forehead rest is beautifully set, and assembles to the ergonomic power supply table naturally as if it were all one piece as well.
