Clinical microscope

Wednesday, 30 September, 2009 | Supplied by: Olympus Australia Pty Ltd



Olympus has introduced the CX21LED clinical microscope with built-in light emitting diode (LED) illumination. Offering consistent long-term performance for biological and medical applications, this imaging system can illuminate samples with a similar light intensity to that provided by halogen bulbs. Furthermore, the LED light source produces a more uniform, controllable and stable illumination for high-quality imaging.

The CX21LED features an LED with an expected lifetime of over 20,000 h, eliminating the need for frequent halogen lamp replacements. As well as providing uniform and stable light intensity, the brightness of the LED can be changed without affecting the colour temperature. This, in addition with the incorporation of the Olympus plan corrected UIS2 objectives, ensures that clear images are obtained with a stable colour balance at any brightness level.

Designed for long-term use, the microscope is composed of robust components: the eyepiece and condenser are both factory attached to the body, while the revolving nosepiece is firmly fixed to the wide and rigid arm along with the objectives. In addition, the compact and lightweight (approx 6 kg) system can be safely transported and easily stored.

The ergonomic layout of the main controls (focus and fine-focusing knob, light control adjustment and stage handle) allows the user to operate the microscope quickly and easily with minimal movement. A smooth, 4-position revolving nosepiece ensures smooth operation and durability are obtained. This robustness is further enhanced by the abrasion-resistant rackless stage, designed for smooth and continuous movement. By effectively removing any protruding racks, the risk of damaging samples or inflicting hand injury is eliminated. Furthermore, the mechanical stage focus-lock prevents the objective from touching the slide and damaging either the specimen or the objective.
