Fluorescence Microscopes

Key features
Uniform illumination with consistant colour temperature
Plan achromat objectives ensure high image flatness accross the field
Excellent contrast via simple aperture iris operation
Fixed Koehler illumination  for easy operation
Simple fluorescence observations

The CX43 microscope enable users to remain comfortable during long periods of routine microscopy observations. The microscope frame conforms to the user’s hands and the location of the control knobs maximize ergonomics to improve work efficiency. Users can quickly set a specimen with one hand, while adjusting the focus and operating the stage with the other hand with minimal movement. The microscope also features an optional camera port for digital imaging.

Olympus BX63 - The automated microscope system for high-end fluorescence imaging.

Key Features:
Most accurate motorised Z-drive
Highest stability due to fixed stage design
Highly precise ultra-sonic stage
Unique operational concept
Unmatched workspace personalisation
Full control via touch panel controller
Detachable manual controller
Intuitive contrast management
Compatible with CoolLED fluorescence excitation systems

The Olympus BX63 is completely motorised and is uniquely focused via the nosepiece rather than stage, which enables the stage to be fixed making it more stable. The motorised stage is also new and is driven by advanced, high precision, ultrasonic Piezo technology, providing silent, smooth and extremely precise operation. The stage can even be positioned by hand enabling rapid gross sample alignment while highly accurate encoders continuously read-out X,Y position The excellent encoding enables the user to set precise coordinates and navigate directly to them at high speed.

Olympus SZX16 - Research stereo zoom microscope.

Key Features:
Superior resolution of 900 LP/mm
High Numerical Aperture (0.3)
Maximum magnification (230x)
Large Field of View (104.8 mm)
Long Working Distance (141 mm)
Superb fluorescence capabilities

The Olympus SZX16 is designed for advanced research and leaves other stereos in its wake with a maximum numerical aperture (NA) of 0.3, producing a superior resolution of 900 line pairs per millimetre. With such amazing resolution (and peerless magnification) you can make your work more efficient, more precise and gain much more information from your samples. The Olympus SZX16 provides a large zoom ratio of 16.4:1. With this seamless zoom ratio combined with the most comprehensive range of parfocal objectives (0.5x, 1.0x, 1.6x & 2.0x), the SZX16 can take you from a macro-view to a micro-view allowing e.g. visualisation of ultra precise details on manufactured micro devices

Olympus MVX10 MacroView - a class of its own.

Key Features:
Maximum fluorescence efficiency plus stereo observation
Excellent light transmission from near UV to near IR increases the range of usable fluorophores
Seamless observation from 4x to125x
Maximum specimen protection due to short exposure time
Complete system solutions for optimised recordings
Long WD for observation at optimum magnification
Compatible with CoolLED fluorescence excitation systems

Researchers are interested in the impact of gene expression and protein function not only at the cellular level but also within whole tissues, organs and even organisms. Hence organisms like C. elegans(nematode worm), Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly), Danio rerio (zebrafish), Xenopus leavis (african clawed frog), Mus musculus (mouse) or the plant Arabidopsis thaliana (wall cress) are used as biological models for in vivo studies in a vast field of research applications. Fluorescence techniques are ideal for the observation of these organisms because they are non-destructive and can be performed over long periods.
