Olympus BX51 Fluorescence Optical Microscope
Olympus BX51 and DP70
The OLYMPUS BX51 research microscope is a union of Olympus infinity corrected optical systems (UIS2 – universal infinity system) and advanced fluorescence or differential interference contrast DIC (Nomarski) technology.
The Olympus BX51 offers transmitted light viewing and an Olympus DP70 digital camera.
Olympus DP70 Digital Microscope Camera
The Olympus DP70 is a 12.5 million-pixel cooled digital color camera system with 36-bits of RGB color depth.
Zeiss Axiovert Fluorescence Optical Microscope
Zeiss Axiovert 200 M and ApoTome
The Zeiss Axiovert 200 M (motorized) is a universally applicable inverted microscope. It is mainly used for examination of cell and tissue cultures and of sediments. It provides the basis for scientific microscopic work on living cells. It uses objective type EC-Plan Neofluar.
The Axio System includes the ApoTome, AxioCam, and AxioVision software.
Zeiss AxioCam MRm
The AxioCam is a Peltier-cooled digital camera. The AxioCam MRm has a resolution of 1.4 megapixels and a dynamic range of up to 1:2200 in 12 bit.
EXFO X-Cite® 120
The EXFO X-Cite 120 is a 120W metal halide lamp fluorescence illumination system.
