Key Features :

  • Excellent cost-performance in reflected light fluorescence
    and other observation methods

Advanced optical and system performance with excellent cost-efficiency

The evolution of this bestselling microscope delivers new, cost-efficient improvements in both optics and system performance. Newly equipped with Olympus' leading-edge UIS2 optical system, it provides significantly enhanced image clarity in a variety of observation methods, from brightfield to reflected light fluorescence. For all inspection and training applications in the fields of biology and medicine, the CX41 sets the pace for its class in both basic and system performance.

Excellent cost-performance in reflected light fluorescence and other observation methods

  • Slide condenser/CX-SLC Brightfield condenser

    These Abbe type condensers allow brightfield observations from 4X to 100X. Accurate centering is provided by the attachment lens (CX-AL) and the iris diaphragm, to exclude unnecessary light and obtain bright Koehler illumination right across the magnification range. These highly economical condensers enable phase contrast and darkfield observations by simply adding basic accessories.

Simple phase contrast attachment CX-PH1, 2, 3

For phase contrast observations at 10X, 40X and 100X.

Darkfield central stop/CH2-DS

For darkfield observations from 4X to 40X.

* Separate filter holder (CH2-FH) or attachment lens (CX-AL) required.

Low magnification adapter /CX-LA

Use of the 2X low magnification objective allows macro observation.

Outstanding flat images from PLCN objectives

The CX41 provides images of outstanding brightness and clarity in a variety of observation modes. As well as Olympus' renowned UIS2 optics infinity system, it employs the PLCN series of Plan Achromat objectives, which are made from carefully selected top quality glass and manufactured with the most rigorous precision. The result is a major improvement in image flatness, with the 10X and 40X objectives in particular providing images that are among the very best in this class of microscope. Transmitted light illumination is from a 6 V, 30 W high-intensity halogen light source.

Dependable basic performance assures outstanding operational convenience

Move the specimen with just one finger

Rubber grips are provided for the stage handles, allowing the specimen to be moved smoothly with just one finger. The slim body and conveniently positioned controls ensure that everything is within easy reach, so operators can maintain a natural posture.

Tilting binocular tube/U-CTBI

The tilting binocular tube lets each operator select the most suitable and comfortable eyepoint — a valuable contribution to reducing fatigue in extended observation sessions.

Inward-facing quintuple revolving nosepiece

The quintuple revolving nosepiece enables a wide range of magnification observations and various combinations of objectives. Unrestricted access to the space in front of the objective allows specimens to be exchanged quickly and easily.

Rackless stage with enhanced operability

To keep the work area clear, and to avoid interference with observation operations, the X-direction travel guide does not extend out from the side of the stage. The main and sub-scale displays are designed for easy read-out.

More accessories, more observation versatility

  • Dual observation attachment U-DO3

    Enables dual, simultaneous observation of a single specimen from the same direction with equal magnification and brightness for both operators. A pointer can be used to indicate specific sections of the specimen to simplify the training process and enhance discussion.

  • Trinocular tube/U-CTR30-2

    Digital or video cameras can be attached for on-site/remote illustration of educational/discussion meetings.

    Digital camera/DP21

    High-definition images displayed with stunning detail in real time. Seamless conference support with real-time image display and smooth operation.
