Olympus introduces heavy-duty, motorised stand for macro zoom microscope

Olympus America : 05 December, 2007  (New Product)
Olympus has introduced a new, heavy-duty motorised stand for the company’s MacroView MVX10 macro zoom microscope.
The instrument has a large footprint and sturdy construction to provide a solution for stable, high-resolution fluorescence imaging. The optional stand is ideal for any research application where high magnifications are being used, or where fluorescent signal is low and long camera exposures are necessary.

The robust stand is designed not only for stability, but also for flexibility and convenience. With its dual-speed, motorised Z-axis travel, along with automatic escape and home positions and 10 inches of total Z-axis movement, the stand allows effortless loading and unloading of specimens on the popular MVX microscope. It accepts both manual and motorised XY stages, and has a transmitted light illumination option. The stand also has the flexibility to be used with Olympus SZX16 or SZX10 stereomicroscopes.

The Olympus MacroView MVX10 Microscope system combines maximum detection sensitivity at the lowest magnifications with a high-magnification zoom for imaging fluorescence specimens at the cellular level. Observation is available at all magnifications from 4x to 252x. The first instrument of its kind available to researchers, it offers large working distances and fields of view, similar to stereomicroscopes, making it well suited for visualising whole organisms and large tissue slices.

The MVX10 can be used with any of three parfocal, high-NA objectives, for enhanced resolution and light gathering ability; in particular, its 0.5 NA, 2x objective offers ultra-high resolution for low-light fluorescence imaging of cellular features with maximum specimen protection due to shorter exposure times.

The instrument combines the best features of compound and stereomicroscopes, allowing zoom macro- to micro-level fluorescence imaging of the same specimen.
