Features of IX83
Unique deck system
No other microscope system offers greater flexibility. The IX83 microscope features a new unique deck system and can be equipped with several illumination, filter and detection units. So the ideal deck configuration is possible for any application.
The Olympus modular motorisation concept allows you to choose the automation level depending on your requirements. The fully automatable IX83 includes a motorised high-precision Z-drive, nosepiece and lightpath changer and further motorized modules can be added, including fluorescence and transmitted light illuminators, filterwheels, shutters and stages. All controlled by a convenient touch panel or by Olympus imaging software.
Olympus imaging software packages enable archiving, analysis of multistained specimens, automated experiments, imaging, high content screening and more. Basic and integrated solutions are available and Olympus specialists will support you in choosing the best option.
Dedicated to Fluorescence
Olympus fluorescence illumination systems and high definition ion coated filters provide the highest signal to noise performance and field number filling the chips of even large-format cameras. The wavelength accuracy, edge steepness and low autofluorescence of the UIS2 HQ-fluorescence-filters reveal more detail.
The IX83 frame design is unsurpassed in compactness without any compromise in its rocklike stability in XY and Z planes. On top the new Olympus Z-drift compensation system uniquely combines a ‘one-shot’ and ‘continuous’ mode to keep the focus stable during time-lapse imaging or screening.
UIS2 - making the invisible visible
The UIS2 reveals previously unseen detail and protects cells from radiation. Superb signal to noise performance and enhanced spectral wavelength range deliver maximum signal with minimum excitation power. Improved chromatic aberration correction ensures the highest colour fidelity.
