Industry News: Hands-on Microscopy Discovery with the Experts

08 Aug 2014

Olympus will be exhibiting at three major European microscopy meetings over the next month, offering delegates the chance to personally experience microscopy solutions spanning a wide range of applications, from routine pathology to high-end advanced research.

Hamburg, 07.08.2014 – Providing the chance to discover the latest microscopy solutions in person, Olympus will be at the major microscopy meetings in Europe over the next month. With highly trained specialists on booth at each event, delegates will benefit from comprehensive demonstrations and expert advice and insight for all application requirements.

At the 26th European Congress of Pathology (ECP) 2014, 30 August – 3 September in London, stand 5, Olympus will exhibit its range of microscope systems and accessories dedicated to pathology, which can enhance the workflow of both research and diagnostic centers alike. The BX3 range of upright microscope offers complete flexibility and ergonomics, with each user able to set up the microscope to match their posture. The BX63 system on display will also feature the unique dual chip Olympus DP80 digital camera which has both color and monochrome capability allowing joint color and fluorescent imaging in pathology applications.
Also on display will be the Olympus VS120 virtual slide scanner that creates a “virtual slide” high-resolution image of the complete specimen at a range of magnifications. This can be stored on a central server, enabling instant access and simultaneous viewing anywhere in the world, making it suitable for remote diagnosis and teaching.
