Abstract
(EN) Microscope apparatus (10) includes a microscope body (12) comprising at least one microscope optical element (30); a frame (100) having at least one support surface and a viewing aperture within the support frame, the at least one support surface providing a reference plane; the frame being supported on the microscope body with the viewing aperture in use aligned with the optical element (30) and the at least one support surface at a distance from the optical element; a biasing mechanism (200, 200)' including a first biasing element (202, 202') facing the at least one support surface and configured to apply a bias towards the at least one support surface; and a slide holder (50, 250) disposable between the support frame (100) and the biasing mechanism (200, 200'); the biasing mechanism (200, 200') being configured to bias a slide (60) in the slide holder (50, 250) to cause a top surface of the slide (60) to abut against the at least one support surface of the support frame (100) and thereby at the reference plane, so as to be spaced from the optical element (30) by said distance. The microscope slide holder (50, 250) includes a body of generally planar form; and a plurality of laterally disposed slide receptacles (80) in the body, each slide receptacle (80) holding a single slide (60).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil microscope (10) comprenant un corps de microscope (12) comprenant au moins un élément optique de microscope (30) ; un cadre (100) ayant au moins une surface de support et une ouverture de visualisation à l'intérieur du cadre de support, la ou les surfaces de support fournissant un plan de référence ; le cadre étant supporté sur le corps de microscope avec l'ouverture de visualisation en utilisation alignée avec l'élément optique (30) et la ou les surfaces de support à une certaine distance de l'élément optique ; un mécanisme de sollicitation (200, 200') comprenant un premier élément de sollicitation (202, 202') faisant face à la ou aux surfaces de support et conçu pour appliquer une sollicitation vers l'ou les surfaces de support ; et un porte-lame (50, 250) jetable entre le cadre de support (100) et le mécanisme de sollicitation (200, 200') ; le mécanisme de sollicitation (200, 200') étant conçu pour solliciter une glissière (60) dans le porte-lame (50, 250) pour faire en sorte qu'une surface supérieure de la glissière (60) pour venir en butée contre la ou les surfaces de support du cadre de support (100) et ainsi au niveau du plan de référence, de manière à être espacée de l'élément optique (30) par ladite distance. Le porte-lame de microscope (50, 250) comprend un corps de forme généralement plane ; et une pluralité de réceptacles coulissants (80) disposés latéralement dans le corps, chaque réceptacle coulissant (80) maintenant une seule lame (60).
