INTRODUCTION
The CxL is a laboratory microscope reflecting a modern design as well as the latest in optical and mechanical advancements.
Designed for professionals as well as students, this microscope offers many features and functions for a diverse set of
applications.
Extra clarity and contrast is provided through a 360° rotatable Binocular body inclined at 45°.
The pressure die cast stand consists of Ball bearing ‘friction less’ sideways focusing to avoid any loss in motion.
The sturdy new stylish design provides comfort as well as stability.
The high powered objectives are spring loaded to prevent accidental damage to specimen slides.
The quadruple nosepiece has a comfortable ribbed grip for easy rotation that also safeguards the turret system against any
damage. All positions are par-centered and par-focalised ensuring the highest level of accuracy.
The ball bearing mechanical stage allows smooth travel over a 76 x 50mm area with spring loaded stage clamps for retaining
the specimen at the exact position desired. A 0.1mm vernier scale provides accurate location of specimen area.
The LED configuration is operational with an in-built re-chargeable battery and charging circuit. The battery will be charged
with a direct input power supply of 110V-240V AC 50Hz/60Hz. This ensures continuous operation even under fluctuating
voltages.
Our Halogen bulb (6V-20W) on this instrument has an average life span of up to 2000 hours and LED has an average life span
of up to 100,000 hours.
The CxL comes equipped with a removable N.A. 1.25 Abbe condenser for brighter illumination levels and an iris diaphragm
for better resolution and contrast control.

1. After the microscope has been used for observation of a specimen
containing bacteria, clean all parts coming in contact with the specimen
to prevent infection.
¡
Be sure to remove the specimen before moving this product.
¡
In case the specimen is damaged by erroneous operation,
it is
important to clean all surfaces that may have come in contact with the
specimen.
2. To avoid potential shock hazards and burns when replacing either
halogen bulb or LED, turn the microscope’s main switch to OFF position
and disconnect power cord from wall outlet in advance. Whenever you
replace bulb during use or right after use, allow lamp socket and bulb to
cool before touching (Fig. 1)
Applicable bulb/LED replacement: 6V20W Halogen bulb P/N CX-013 or LED P/N 9135000-901
3. Install microscope on a sturdy, level table or bench and avoid any blockage of air vents on the bottom side of the
base.
Do not place microscope on a flexible surface, as this could result in blocking the air vents and cause
overheating/fire.
4. Always use the power cord provided by LABOMED. If the proper power cord is not used, product safety
performance cannot be warranted.
5 When installing the microscope, route the power cord away from the microscope frame. Should the power cord
come in contact with the microscopes base, the power cord could short circuit.
6 Always ensure that the grounding terminal of the microscope and that of the wall outlet are properly connected. If
the equipment is not grounded, LABOMED can not warrant the electrical safety performance of the equipment.
7 Never allow metallic objects to penetrate the air vents of the microscope frame as this could result in user injury and
equipment damage.
8 After operation of microscope, be sure to disconnect power cord from connector on the microscope or from the wall
power outlet.

1. A microscope is a precision instrument with delicate glass components.
Please handle with care.
2. Do not use the microscope where it is subjected to direct sunlight, high
temperature, humidity, dust and vibrations. (For the operating
conditions, see chapter 15, "SPECIFICATIONS" on Page 24.)
3. The microscope is ventilated by natural convection. Be sure to leave
enough space (10 cm or more) around body while installing it.
4. Arm handle is provided for carrying the microscope.
! To prevent damage, do not hold the microscope by the stage or
observation tube.
Be sure to remove the specimen from the stage clip while
transporting unit to avoid damage to the specimen slide.
Maintenance and Storage
1. Clean all glass components by wiping gently with cleaning cloth provided. To remove fingerprints or oil smudges,
wipe with cleaning cloth slightly moistened with a mixture of petroleum (85%) and isopropanol (15%).
! Since solvents such as petroleum and isopropanol are highly flammable, they must be handled carefully.
Be sure to keep these chemicals away from open flames or potential sources of electrical sparks - for
example, electrical equipment that is being switched “ON” or “OFF”. Also remember to always use these
chemicals only in a well-ventilated room.
2. Do not attempt to use organic solvents to clean the microscope components other than the glass components. To
clean non-glass components, use a lint-free, soft cloth slightly moistened with a diluted neutral detergent.
3. Do not disassemble any part of the microscope as this could result in
malfunction or mitigated performance.
4. When not using the microscope, ensure that the frame is fully cooled
and store the unit in a dry locker or cover with a dust cover (provided).
5. To clean the condenser, fully loosen the securing knob (lower) and
remove the condenser by lowering condenser bracket, wipe the front
lens of the condenser with optical cleaning solution (mixture suggested
above) and lens tissue.

Caution
If the microscope is used in a manner not specified by this manual, the safety of the user may not be warranted.
In addition, the equipment may also suffer damage. Always use the equipment as outlined in this instruction
manual.

Care & Maintenance
Your microscope has been engineered for a long and safe operational life with the least amount of maintenance
required. In general, routine maintenance is limited to keeping the microscopes working parts lubricated and optics
clean. Always cover the microscope with the provided dust cover when not in use.
1. Cleaning the lenses :
To clean the lens surfaces, remove dust using a soft brush or gauze (compressed air dust cans are ideal). For
removing finger marks or grease, soft cotton cloth/ lens tissue or gauze lightly moistened with cleaning solution
(85% petroleum ether and 15% isopropanol) should be used. For cleaning the objective optics, use xylene.
Observe sufficient caution in handling xylene.
Cleaning procedure:
Place the objectives and/or eyepieces on a dust-free surface (e.g. fresh aluminum foil). All other optical
components to be cleaned should be as accessible as possible.
a. Blow all loose dust particles away with a dust blower.
b. Remove all water-soluble dirt with distilled water. If this is unsuccessful repeat using a solution of diluted hand
soap liquid. Remove any remaining residue with a dry cotton swab.
c. To remove oil, use a solution of diluted hand-soap liquid initially. If this does not produce a satisfactory result,
repeat the cleaning using a solvent (Optical Cleaning Solution 85% petroleum ether and 15% isopropanol).
d. Grease must always be removed using a solvent.
e. Cleaning is achieved by using a spiral motion from the center to the rim. Never wipe using zig-zag movements as
this will only spread the dirt. With larger optical surfaces (e.g. tube lenses) the spiral motion starts initially at the rim
before moving to the middle and is only then followed by a center to rim cleaning motion. Normally several spiral
wipes are recommended.
We recommend pure, volatile petroleum ether or Optical Cleaning Solution as explained in point 3 above.
zig-zag motion (X)
spiral motion ( )
Wipe using a spiral movement. Do not use a zig-zag motion!
2. Cleaning of painted surfaces :
Avoid the use of any organic solvent ( e.g. thinner, xylene, ether, alcohol etc.) for cleaning of painted surfaces of
the instrument. Painted surfaces can be cleaned with a very lightly moistened micro fiber cloth. Loose dust and
other dirt can be removed using a brush of soft hair used exclusively for this purpose.
4
! Caution:
Do not use aggressive organic solvent such as acetone for cleaning painted surfaces and plastic parts of
the microscope.
3. Never attempt to dismantle :
Never attempt to dismantle the instrument so as to avoid the possibility of impairing its operational efficiency and
accuracy.
4. Periodical checking :
To maintain the performance of the instrument, we recommend customers have their microscopes serviced
periodically by a factory authorized dealer/rep. For details, contact your nearest dealer or Labo America’s main
office in California.

Reflection Mirror
The reflection mirror is designed to be used in out door observation settings wherein a power source is not readily
available. The mirror attachment makes it possible to use natural light to illuminate your specimen.
The microscope should be installed in any place that is not exposed to
direct sunlight. Direct sunlight reflection can cause eye injury, or in some
cases, blindness.
The eyepieces should be oriented toward the rear of the microscope so
that the reflection mirror receives unobstructed light. To do this, loosen the
observation tube clamping knob and rotate the tube 180c.
1. Fit the reflection mirror in the window lens of the microscope frame by
aligning the mounting tab.
2. Remove the daylight filter because it renders the image blue under
natural light conditions.
3. The reflection mirror (fig. 5) should be pointed toward anywhere with
stray light. While observing the image through the eyepieces, adjust the
orientation of the reflection mirror to capture stray light.
A planar reflection minor is used normally. However, if the image
brightness is uneven or the outside view is visible in the image, use a
concave reflection mirror

Adjusting the Interpupillary Distance
The inter-pupillary distance adjustment consists of regulating the two
eyepieces to align with both eyes’ pupils so that you can observe a
single microscopic image through two eyepieces in stereo vision. This
greatly helps to reduce fatigue and discomfort during observation.
While looking through the eyepieces, move both eyepieces until the left
and right fields of view coincide completely. The position of index dot •
indicates the inter-pupiliary distance value.
Note your interpupillary distance so that it can be quickly duplicated.
Fig. 20
5
Adjusting the Diopter
Procedure for adjusting the diopter:
1. Rotate the right eyepiece to match the markings of your IPD (If your
IPD is 64, rotate the eyepiece to 64 mark).
2. While looking through the right eyepiece with your right eye, rotate
the coarse and fine adjustment knobs to bring the specimen into
focus.
3. While looking through the left eyepiece with your left eye, rotate only
the diopter adjustment ring on the eyepiece until specimen is at its
best possible focus.
Fig. 21
• This is a special feature provided to compensate the tube length
change while changing IPD setting. Follow this procedure to
obtain optimum parfocality of system to your IPD setting.
Using the Eye Shades
When Wearing Eyeglasses
Use with the eye shades in the normal, folded-down position. This will
prevent the eyeglasses from being scratched.
When Not Wearing Eyeglasses
Extend the folded eye shades outwards (direction of the arrow) to
prevent extraneous light from entering into your line of vision.

Using the 100X Immersion Objective
The designated immersion oil should be in contact with the top lens of
the 100X immersion objective. If not, the specimen will appear distorted
and dull. It is recommended that LABOMED immersion oil is always
used.
Immersion Process:
1. Bring the specimen in focus using first the 10x, then 40x objective.
Fig. 25
2. Disengage the 40x cycling towards 100x, and place a drop of
immersion oil on the center point of the specimen.
3. Rotate the revolving nosepiece to engage the immersion objective
and rotate the fine adjustment knob to bring the specimen into focus
(Since air bubbles in the oil will affect the image quality, make sure
that the oil Is free of bubbles. To remove bubbles, rotate the
revolving nosepiece slightly to agitate the oil).
4. The condenser of this microscope manifests the full performance
when oil is placed between the slide glass and the front lens of
condenser. If oil is not placed there, the observed image may appear
dark.
5. After use, remove oil from the objective front tens by wiping with lens
tissue slightly moistened with petroleum (85%) and isopropanol (15%)
mixture.
Caution
If immersion oil makes contact with your eyes , rinse eyes out
thoroughly with fresh water. If immersion oil makes contact with
skin, wash affected areas with soap and water.
If prolonged discomfort is experienced, consult your physician
immediately.
