The LW Scientific Mi5 Polarizing Binocular Microscope is an essential tool for synovial fluid analysis. Crystal-induced arthritis, such as gout or pseudo gout, can be identified and differentiated with the use of the polarizing attachment and red compensator lens.
The LW Scientific Mi5 Polarizing Binocular Microscope also functions as a flat-field, laboratory-grade microscope for routine cytology, hematology, urinalysis, etc. This specialized system was designed to combine high-resolution optics with functionality for rheumatologists, gemologists, and more.
