Axio Lab.A1


Reliable Microstructure and Material Defect Analysis – in Comfortable Conditions

Choose the best configuration for your application from three stand versions:

1)Axio Lab.A1: Reflected light illumination and/or transmittedlight illumination;

2)Axio Lab.A1 for orthoscopy,

Axio Lab.A1 for conoscopy.


  • Use the 4-position reflector turret to select the best contrasting techniques for your microstructure. Add further contrasting techniques using push and click modules.
  • A 50W halogen lamp and power supply are integrated into the stand. Alternatively, a LED lamp enables you to profit from consistent color temperature and low power consumption with an extremely long life time.
  • Reach all the main controls of your Axio Lab.A1 with one hand.
    Use it to study the smallest structures while sitting in a relaxed posture and recording each and every material defect without experiencing fatigue, even over prolonged periods.
  • Use the stand versions for orthoscopy or conoscopy to examine your birefringent materials in polarization contrast.
  • Axio Lab.A1 for polarization are equipped with a centerable 4 position nosepiece turret.



All Purpose Polarization

applications : geology, mineralogy and the exploration of fossile fuel resources.



Axio Lab.A1 provides answers to questions relating to refractive indices, cleavages, double refraction, extinction angles, optical path differences and the number and angle of optical axes.

 Extend your application range with measuring compensators. Choose between fixed and rotatable compensators to visualize large and small path differences and determine the relative optical character of fibroussubstances. Measure cleavages and extinction angles with the 360° rotary stage.

 The conoscopy stand features a logically coupled analyzer and Bertrand lens. Swing the Bertrand lens into the beam path and the analyzer swings into the beam path as well.


Key Benefits:

  • 5-position nosepiece turret HD
  • 4-position reflector turret with Push & Click contrast modules
  • 50 W halogen illumination
  • Optimized beam path (reflected light)
  • Differential Interference Contrast (C-DIC)
