Ergonomic advances aid high-throughput microscopy

Combining user comfort with bright, uniform illumination, the CX43 and CX33 microscopes from Olympus are optimised for long periods of routine observation. In the design of the microscopes, frequently-used controls have been lowered, allowing a more natural position for the user’s arms during operation.

In both the CX43 and the CX33, the 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 them while their forearms remain on the desk. The low-positioned revolving nosepiece with finger rest accommodates up to five objectives, and enables users to change magnification quickly with minimal arm movement.

To improve durability and reduce running costs, a centring-free light-emitting diode (LED) light source with a 60,000-hour lifetime has been added, ensuring 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 a range of objectives (2X to 100X magnification) and covers various observation methods, including phase contrast and fluorescence. The CX33 microscope has an inbuilt camera port, and the CX43 microscope has an optional trinocular observation head for digital imaging.
