<strong>Ergonom</strong> <strong>3000</strong> Specialised <strong>Microscope</strong><br />

<strong>Kurt</strong> <strong>Olbrich</strong><br />

<strong>Ergonom</strong> <strong>3000</strong><br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Ergonom</strong> Technology<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Ergonom</strong> <strong>3000</strong> <strong>Microscope</strong> <strong>developed</strong> <strong>by</strong> <strong>Kurt</strong> <strong>Olbrich</strong><br />

In 1972, <strong>Kurt</strong> <strong>Olbrich</strong> investigated why the resolution and depth of field, of existing light microscopes,<br />

is so limited. In 1976, he discovered a unique new way of building microscopes where <strong>by</strong> using a<br />

different approach to optics and a new mathematical approach, he could build microscopes with a<br />

large "cylinder of sharpness" (depth of field) and a true resolution better than 100nm, while<br />

maintaining full contour sharpness and true colors without the need for staining, oil immersion, etc.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Ergonom</strong> <strong>3000</strong> series is ideal for medical professionals who find that darkfield simply does not<br />

provide the results they need. Whereas conventional microscopes provide a practical resolution of<br />

about 500nm, the <strong>Ergonom</strong> <strong>3000</strong> can resolve up to 200nm with full color contrast and depth of field.<br />

Depth of Field: All <strong>Ergonom</strong> microscopes feature variable depth of field where the true colors and contour<br />

sharpness remain clearly discernable, even with ever increasing magnifications comparable with that of midrange<br />

scanning electron microscopes. This makes it possible to vary the depth of field independently of<br />

magnification, which also allows much more detail to be seen (see image on right), live and in real time!<br />

No Staining, No Oil: <strong>The</strong> unique optical system provides so much contrast that staining is not required.<br />

This allows you to observe the specimens, under a white light source, in their true (living) state, in vivid contrast<br />

and true colors even at the highest magnifications. All objectives remain dry as oil immersion is not required.<br />

Grayfield: An entirely new method in optical microscopy is the Grayfield method, <strong>developed</strong> <strong>by</strong> <strong>Kurt</strong> <strong>Olbrich</strong>.<br />

This method allows you to see detailed structures that are otherwise not even visible with conventional phase<br />

contrast microscopes. For example, the Grayfield method allows you to observe the in vitro decomposition<br />

processes of blood. During this transitional phase new viruses and structures arise, which tend to decay and<br />

could previously not be made visible due to the lack of suitable microscope techniques.<br />

Phase Contrast: <strong>The</strong> phase contrast method is used for all thin-layered structures including fibers and<br />

textiles. With conventional methods, focusing is limited <strong>by</strong> overlapping layers and the structures also have the<br />

same fractal index causing the structures to become blurred. <strong>The</strong> <strong>Ergonom</strong> technology removes these<br />

limitations and provides clear and sharp contours.<br />

All <strong>Ergonom</strong> microscopes are made in Germany to the highest technical standards and are available in a wide range of<br />

configurations. Further details are available online. In order to make sure you get the right system; it is advantageous to<br />

discuss your needs in our German labs. Please call us to make an appointment.<br />
