Research Microscope From Olympus - The BX3 delivers adaptable Configuration

Olympus' introduces the new upright research microscope range. The BX3 series, builds on the features and functionality of the popular BX2 series. BX3 models offer users a wide range of configuration and customization options which allow them to make this microscope truly their own. Users can easily adjust everything from the GUI to the imaging components of the microscope; even the position of the instrument's controls can be adjusted to the preferences of the user.

The microscopes which comprise the BX3 series are designed with flexibility as well as performance in mind. Users are presented with all of the options they need to effectively manage and customize the imaging process; it all begins with a programmable touch-sensitive control panel that streamlines the imaging and observation needed by users of a research microscope, from method to objective, mirror and focus.

Going beyond simply allowing the user to control the microscope's components, the BX series BX63 model includes automation features which eliminate the need for the user to make many optical adjustments manually. An automated contrast management handles top lens, condenser position, field and aperture stops, fluorescence shutter, the position of the mirror turret, polarizer and lighting depending on user-selected contrast and objective methods.

The BX53 may also be configured for automation, with optional components including mirror turret, nosepiece, ND filter wheel, stage and universal condenser. It's a modular research microscope system which is designed for maximum user configurability. The optional coded nosepiece component and mirror turret make it possible to automatically record and share magnification and settings for easy comparison and scaling of images.

Olympus BX3 series microscopes also offer a wide range of illumination options. The BX63 can use either a conventional halogen light or an innovative true-color LED light source; the LED system offers color rendering which is equal to that of a halogen light with daylight filter. This light source is well suited for imaging applications using virtually any bright field stains, unlike conventional LED light sources - and it offers a lifespan of around 20,000 hours along with lower operating costs due to its low power consumption.

The BX3 research microscope series also provide users with Olympus' powerful cellSens software, which provides easy to use software control of even complex imaging applications involving Z-stack acquisition, multiple image alignment and multiple position imaging. BX3 microscopes are built to work seamlessly with the cellSens platform, which itself offers the user unparalleled control over workflow and like the BX3 series of microscopes themselves, new ways to simplify observation and imaging tasks.
