The Lens Flex-Adapter mechanism from piezosystem jena allows the easy and fast exchange of microscope objectives compatible with a variety of thread sizes from Zeiss, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, and others.
The adapter mechanism makes the interchange of objectives both simple and accurate due to the use of an exchangeable thread adapter in sizes ranging from W0.8 x 1/3" up to M32 x 0.75. Its design avoids extra forces while the objectives are being changed by not allowing the material to merge.
