"As a general-purpose fluorescence microscope base, it does not disappoint. First, of all the quality of the lenses on offer is very high, high NA, great chromatic aberration correction, and flatness. For our research, the working distance of some lenses was key for our spheroid observation and the lenses on offer did not disappoint. One of the greatest features on hand is the optional ZDC unit for laser-assisted autofocus that we use for both glass and polymer-based bottom plates. The software enables complex assay setup procedures with granular control on every level but it must be said that the more advanced features can be a bit overwhelming for a beginner user."

"The instrument is quite simple and easy to use, very good after sales services and its value for money. Surely recommended to other colleagues for their various applications."
The IX83 inverted microscope from Olympus: Open access meets motorisation for intuitive and flexible life science microscopy Olympus has released the IX83 microscope, the most advanced member of the new IX3 series of inverted imaging systems for life science researchers.
The IX83 allows any user to rapidly and effortlessly obtain expert results, without the need for in-depth microscopy knowledge. This includes reliable long-term time-lapse imaging of living cells, as well as high-end fluorescence applications such as total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy. Every component of the light path, from the illuminator to the optics, is dedicated to imaging of the highest quality with minimal loss of light across a range of brightfield, phase contrast and fluorescent illumination options. This also includes an expanded field of view, increasing the amount of your sample you can reliably capture. With a unique ‘open access’ frame design and touch panel operating system, users can mould the components and controls to best suit their workflow.
