  • Applications

    • Biological Sciences:

                     - Dissection: Stereo microscopes are commonly used in biology labs for dissecting small organisms or examining anatomical structures with precision.

                         - Botany: They aid in the examination of plant structures such as leaves, flowers, and roots, allowing for detailed observation of morphology and cellular structures.

                         - Entomology: Insect specimens can be observed and studied in detail under stereo microscopes, facilitating identification, research, and taxonomic studies.

    • Material Science and Engineering:

                     - Quality Control: Stereo microscopes are used in industries for inspecting the surface quality, dimensions, and defects of manufactured components and materials.

                         - Failure Analysis: Engineers use stereo microscopes to investigate the root causes of component failures, identifying flaws, fractures, or material imperfections.

                         - Microelectronics: In semiconductor manufacturing, stereo microscopes are used for inspecting and assembling tiny electronic components with high precision.

    • Forensic Science:

                    - Crime Scene Investigation: Stereo microscopes help forensic investigators examine evidence such as hair, fibers, and trace materials, aiding in crime scene reconstruction and analysis.

                        - Toolmark Examination: They are used to analyze toolmarks left at crime scenes, such as impressions on surfaces, firearms, or other tools, aiding in matching evidence to potential sources.

    • Jewelry and Gemology:

                     - Gemstone Identification: Gemologists use stereo microscopes to inspect gemstones for characteristics such as color, clarity, inclusions, and cut quality.

                         - Jewelry Inspection: Jewelers utilize stereo microscopes for examining intricate details of jewelry pieces during manufacturing, repair, or appraisal.

    • Education:

                    - Classroom Demonstrations: Stereo microscopes are used in educational settings to demonstrate biological concepts, such as cell structure, insect anatomy, and plant morphology.

                         - Student Research: Students in various scientific disciplines use stereo microscopes for their research projects, allowing hands-on exploration and detailed observation of specimens.

    • Art Conservation and Restoration:

                     - Artifact Examination: Art conservators and restorers use stereo microscopes to examine fine details of artworks, artifacts, and historical objects for damage assessment and restoration planning.

                          - Paint Analysis: Stereo microscopes aid in analyzing paint layers, pigments, and brushwork techniques used in artworks, helping to authenticate and preserve cultural heritage.

  • Cost-Effective Performance and Accurate Image

    A flexible imaging tool for routine research, its stereo microscope offers darkfield and polarization imaging, a maximum numerical aperture of 0.2, a 10:1 zoom ratio, and a Galilean optical system that minimizes distortion.

  • Flexible Stereo with Wide Zoom Ratio

    • Excellent Optical Performance with Natural View: It is designed to provide a natural view of the specimen with excellent stereo and color representation. The DFPlan series combines high-NA resolving power and working comfort with "distortion-free" optical design for exceptionally flat imaging, and includes a 2x objective lens with an NA of 0.2 for high-resolution imaging at 600 linepair per millimeter.
    • Wide 10:1 Zoom Ratio: It covers a magnification range of 6.3x to 63x with its 1x objective, and offers up to 123x magnification with a 2x objective. Thanks to this wide-ranging 10:1 zoom ratio versatility, it's a good choice for life science applications that require low-magnification macro views for dissection and specimen manipulation, and sharp high-magnification views for close observation of cell structures.

    • Digital Imaging and Documentation: It can also be equipped with a trinocular tube and Olympus DP series digital camera for high-resolution imaging and research documentation. DP series cameras offer the high sensitivity for a wide range of applications, including high-sensitivity fluorescence imaging, and can be easily controlled using Olympus cellSens software.

  • Choice of Suitable Contrast and Observation Method

    With a slim 41.5 mm design, that is approximately half the thickness of previous halogen lamp transmitted light illumination bases, new LED transmitted light illumination bases have a lower height to enable a low eyepoint and easy access to base-mounted samples during observation and operation. The LED illumination base it with quad position turret enables the user to choose cartridges and to switch from brightfield (standard/high/low), oblique (standard/high/low), darkfield, polarized illumination, and shutter with a simple turn. A one position LED illumination base is also an option. This makes its a flexible all-in-one microscope for various samples and observation tasks. Another advantage of LED illumination is a cooler base surface, which is suitable for long duration manipulation of live specimens. Power consumption is lower than a conventional 30W halogen light source. A life cycle of over 60,000 hours significantly reduces operation costs.

  • Choice of High-Performance Objectives

    • DFPL2X-4/DFPL1.5X-4/DFPL0.75X-4/DFPL0.5X: The DFPL series of objectives accurately reproduce specimen shapes with good color fidelity. 

    • DFPLAPO1.25X-2/DFPLAPO1X-4: Apochromatically corrected to achieve the highest degree of performance. Excellent in resolving power, contrast, and image flatness with small distortion. 

    • SZX-ACH1.25X/SZX-ACH1X: Provides well-balanced objectives that combines high resolving power with long working distance.
