The BX63 is completely motorized and is uniquely focused via the nosepiece rather than stage, enabling the stage to be fixed making it more stable. The motorized stage is also a new feature 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 the X and Y position. The excellent encoding enables the user to set precise coordinates and navigate directly to them at high speed.
Intelligently Designed to be Flexible and Reliable
The BX63 is a motorized microscope developed in response to the requests of hundreds of researchers and microscope users. With a simple touch, users can operate the microscope quickly through the detachable and freely positional U-MCZ controller or by means of a computer with cellSens imaging software*.
All data captured via controlling the microscope through the touch panel or U-MCZ controller are continually fed back through cellSens, providing the freedom to operate the microscope in the most convenient manner for the user.
From image capture to report creation, Olympus cellSens personalizes researchers’ individual operational environments in accordance with individual researcher workflows.

Stability for Improved Imaging Reliability
The BX63 is focused by motorizing the nosepiece in the Z-axis (possible due to the infinity-corrected optics) and fixing the stage to the rest of the frame at two additional points, making it extremely stable. In addition to this stability, the motorized nosepiece Z-drive is very accurate, enabling highly precise Z-stack capture and subsequent deconvolution.
Precision Motorized Focus and Field Diaphragm
Motorizing the nosepiece has the advantage that the objective can be changed using either the remote control handset or the PC software control. This makes imaging far more efficient, freeing the user up to perform other tasks.
Also, the more advanced imaging techniques may require the use of multiple magnifications and, with a motorized nosepiece and cellSens software, the whole process can be automated. A further benefit is that the correct objective is selected every time and the magnification is recorded with each image.
