Upright compound microscopes

The latest Olympus microscope for metallography is the Olympus BX53.
It has multiple observation modes - these being reflected and transmitted light illumination as standard with fluorescence and darkfield illumination as options.
It is ergonomically designed with easy focusing adjustable to either-side to suit right and left handed users.
It has an X/Y travel range of 50mm through 150mm
It accommodates samples up to 65mm thick as standard, other models can take thicker samples.
Now with LED illumination options and encoding of nosepieces, a combination can easily be constructed to suit
your exact requirements.

Its UIS2 objective lenses are leading edge minimizing the aberrations which reduce resolution.
The UIS2 high quality transmittance glass and coating is flat over an ultra-wide band wave length. This, coupled with the design of the tube lens in the optical system ensures clear, naturally coloured images faithful to the original sample even with digital imaging.
It offers the brightest darkfield image ever due to its new semi-apochromatic objective lens.
In ultra-low magnification the UIS2's depolarizer removes spot flare in low reflection specimens.

In short it is a solidly built, powerful and flexible all-rounder.
