Item description Seben SBX-5 Microscope:

Even if many microscopes are looking very similar, it is the built-in technology which characterizes a professional microscope! We sell originals only and no cheap copies or imports from Thailand!

This transmitted light microscope features a high quality metal body. Of course the eyepieces and objectives comply with the standards of the German Standards Institution (DIN). It is therefore one of the best performing microscope systems of its class. Whether you are interested in hobby microscopy, or if you have the discerning demands of a professional, this microscope leaves you wanting for nothing!

The precise mechanical stage ensures an optimal positioning of your specimens. Of course the microscope is outfitted with coarse and fine focus for exact focusing.

Ideal combination of eyepieces - only available from Seben:

We supply this microscope with a perfect combination of eyepieces: 10x + 15x + 20x!!! Unlike other vendors who are supplying a selection of 10x + 12.5x + 20x only. You should take into consideration that the step between 12.5x and 20x is quite large while the step between 12.5x and 10x is rather small. The 15x DIN eyepiece is an ideal intermediate size and complements the other two eyepieces much better! Thus you are able to select from an optimal range of magnifications and it makes additional purchases unnecessary. For this reason we have integrated this important intermediate size.

Seben wide field of vision eyepieces:

These first class eyepieces feature an especially wide field of vision. With them you will be able to professionally observe with both of your eyes as common in laboratories. The image will be plastic and three dimensional. Explore the world of the microcosm!

Seben dynamic objectives:

Dynamic objectives have the fantastic advantage that the tip of the objective is elastic. Thus you are always on the safe side. This special feature prevents damages of the objective, the mechanical stage and the microscope. The specimens you are observing will always remain in focus. This is a feature you can’t expect to be supplied when buying cheap offers or Thai imports. Therefore you should trust in the quality of Seben’s high tech microscopes.

Storage of Seben’s high quality objectives:

Of course we supply our objectives in a dust and moisture proof multifunctional receptacle. The air and gas tight receptacle with screw-on lids may also be used as receptacle for samples and specimens.

Design of Seben’s high quality objectives:

The screw threads of the objectives are made of a brass-copper alloy in order to prevent jamming or rust development.

Seben’s mechanical stage:

The mechanical stage enables you to adjust the specimen accurately without having to touch it by hand. When buying a microscope we recommend you to prefer models with mechanical stages. Microscopy is only fun with a mechanical stage!

Workmanship of the Seben SBX-5 Microscope:
Seben's SBX-5 microscope is of high-class workmanship. The finished product is in every detail of excellent standard. Only very special optical glass of premium quality with coating is used in production. The combination of computer calculated high technology with a sophisticated production process results in a first-class binocular microscope.


The built-in 220V/240V illumination with light focusing ensures a perfectly illuminated image.

Koehler illumination:
The Koehler illumination got its name from Professor August Köhler. ("Zeitschrift für wissenschaftliche Mikroskopie", volume X, pages 433-440 (1893))

It is used in high quality microscopes for the even and bright illumination of a specimen in the required area, so that the illumination is not too strong. In addition disturbing light reflections (e. g. from the tubes inner walls) are prevented to a large extent. Perfectly illuminated specimens are particularly essential in micro photography for quality purposes.

Let us take a specimen (e.g. diatoms) and observe it without the Koehler illumination. As you can see the image is completely out of focus and very blurred. See image on the LEFT sid

That’s not a very good condition for high quality observations. On the contrary! Microscopy is no fun at all like that and won’t provide good results either.

If the Koehler illumination is used however, the difference to normal illumination becomes apparent immediately. Enjoy an image with highly increased contrast! See image on the RIGHT side.
