The entire optical path of the BX53 is designed for optimal fluorescence imaging, using UIS2 components that set new standards in precision and clarity. High-quality mirror cube coatings provide excellent transmission and steep cut-offs, while almost all stray light is eliminated from interior surfaces for the best sensitivity and color separation.
Other advanced features further facilitate fluorescence microscopy, including a new fly-eye lens system, which delivers homogenous illumination, and automatic magnification and filter cube read-out, which simplifies the repetition of settings.
Additionally, the BX53 semi-motorized fluorescence microscope makes highly efficient imaging possible. Automation enables the imaging of large areas in high magnification and also facilitates multicolor fluorescence.
Adaptability to Suit Observational Preferences
The Olympus BX53 microscopes offer even greater application flexibility via a series of semi-motorization and automation options, all of which can be controlled, along with illumination and image capture through the cellSens software. The addition of these components, therefore, provides excellent potential for enhanced experimentation.
Expandable to Meet Greater Demands
The BX3 microscope family offers a wide range of features and optical performance for the research market. With an emphasis on the powerful UIS2 optical system and the proven rigid, Y-shaped frame coupled with easy-to-operate front controls, it offers improved versatility and ergonomic operation.
The compact space-efficient frame of the BX53 enables comprehensive microscope work, making it an ideal and versatile microscope for any imaging application, and also the perfect starting point for digital imaging, semi-motorization and fluorescence.
Automatic Switching to the Optimal Contrast Settings
Changing transmitted light observation methods means ensuring correct arrangement of ND filters, polarizers / analyzers and condensers on top of using the right objectives. The 8-position universal condenser even controls the top lens to ensure the full magnification range is available.
The condenser guarantees that optical elements such as DIC prisms, phase inserts and polarizers can be selected easily. To ensure that the illuminating light is as closely matched to the objectives as possible, the aperture stop is automatically set based on the NA of the objective in use.
Customizable Control Layout
The BX53 is designed for maximum flexibility in placement, with a centrally positioned light intensity dial and a fluorescence illuminator shutter that can be operated with either hand. In addition, the fine focus handles can be attached on either side of the microscope.
The motion sensor detects when a user leaves and automatically turns off the transmitted light lamp after about 30 minutes. The energy-saving switch conserves energy and lamp lifetime.
