Upright Compound Microscopes
Olympus BX53 advanced upright research microscope
The BX53 microscope combines a bright LED with suitable color temperature, automatic brightness adjustment, and ergonomic components so you can view samples in true-to-life colors while staying comfortable while you work.
Modular components enable you to expand as needed. You can upgrade your system for fluorescence, motorization, passive coding, multiple cameras, and optogenetics.
Olympus BX46 ergonomic
Built to meet the demands of repetitive routine microscopy, the BX46 microscope has features that help you remain comfortable while you’re working. The stage is fixed so it is close to your desk’s surface, keeping it nearer to your hands. Samples are focused on using the movable nosepiece.
Olympus BX43 versatile routine upright laboratory microscope
The modular BX43 microscope enables you to choose between cost-efficient and advanced configurations, depending on your needs. Modular components, such as ergonomic observation tubes and stages, make it simple to customize your microscope to your application.
Olympus CX43 and CX33 - versatile routine upright laboratory microscopes
CX43 and CX33 biological microscopes enable you to remain comfortable during long periods of routine observation. The microscope frame conforms to your hands, and the location of the control knobs maximizes ergonomics to improve work efficiency. With minimal movement, you can quickly set a specimen with one hand, while adjusting the focus and operating the stage with the other hand. The microscopes can also feature an optional camera port for digital imaging.
The CX43/CX33 LED illumination provides several advantages, both immediate and over the long-term:
Produces daylight conditions so specimens can be viewed with their natural colors
Consistent color temperature at any brightness, so can avoid spending time making adjustments when you change the brightness
A long 60,000-hour lifetime with the brightness level remaining stable throughout

Fast Cell Observation with the Integrated Phase Contrast (iPC) System
High contrast provides a clear view of cells at 4x, 10x, 20x, and 40x without the need to exchange or re-center the ring slit
Phase contrast system facilitates simple and efficient cell observation for a faster, more comfortable workflow
Efficiently screen for desired cells thanks to the ring slit for the PLN2X objective, which offers a 22 mm field of view and an 11 mm diameter
2X objective provides noticeably higher contrast than other objectives, so even transparent objects in the sample can be clearly identified
Wide visual field makes it easy to observe the cells in individual wells of a 96-well plate without moving the stage
