Olympus’ ergonomic CX43 and CX33 microscopes are designed to deliver superior comfort and reduce fatigue during long periods of routine microscopy.
Focusing on user comfort and with bright, uniform illumination, the microscopes are suitable for for high-throughput, regular use. Frequently-used controls have been lowered, allowing a more natural position for the user’s arms during operation.
To improve durability and reduce running costs, a centring-free LED light source with a long 60,000-hour lifetime has been added, ensuring a stable imaging performance over long periods of time. The new LED light source provides uniform illumination and constant colour temperature at any brightness level.
The universal condenser on the CX43 microscope supports objectives ranging from 2X to 100X magnification and covers a variety of observation methods—including phase contrast and fluorescence—giving users the flexibility to switch to the appropriate method for their applications on a single microscope frame. The CX33 microscope has a built-in camera port and the CX43 microscope has an optional trinocular observation head for digital imaging.
Stage is 70 mm lower than the previous model, resulting in a large working space under the eyepiece that makes it easier to check or swap samples with just one hand.
The stage and co-axial focus knobs have also been lowered, so users can reach these controls while their forearms remain on the desk.
Low-positioned revolving nosepiece with finger rest accommodates up to five objectives and enables users to quickly change magnification with minimal arm movement.
