Manufacturer Nikon (3) & Olympus (1)


Nikon

The lab currently has 3 Nikon Microscopes (Microscopes #2, #3 & #4). These are located in bays 6 and 7.

The scopes are connected to computers via Jenoptik ProgRes software which allows users to digitally capture images through the microscope and make calibrated measurements.

Microscope #2: (Bay 7)

  • Trinocular: Ocular Binoc. + Camera (Simultaneous)
  • ProgRes video/photo capture & user-editable calibrated measurement
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Filters: Green, ND
  • Bright/Dark Field
  • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC/Nomarski)
    • The DIC prism is installed on each objective and can't be removed, so even regular microscope images suffer from a slight double-image
  • Top Illumination

Microscope #3: Eclipse Nikon L200D (Bay 6)

  • Manual for Nikon Eclipse L200D
  • Trinocular: Binoc. + Camera (Mutually Exclusive)
  • ProgRes video/photo capture & user-editable calibrated measurement
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Filters: Green, ND
  • Bright/Dark Field
  • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC/Nomarski)
  • Top Illumination

Microscope #4: (Bay 6)

  • Trinocular: Binoc. + Camera (Mutually Exclusive)
  • ProgRes video/photo capture & user-editable calibrated measurement
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Filters: Green, ND
  • Bright/Dark Field
  • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC/Nomarski)
  • Top/Bottom Illumination

Olympus

Microscope #1: Olympus Optiphot-2 (Bay 3)

  • To be added

Fluorescence Microscope: Olympus MX51 (Bay 6)

  • See the wiki page for the Olympus MX51 for full details
  • Trinocular: Binoc. + Camera (Simultaneous)
  • Native Olympus Stream Software:
    • Photo/video capture
    • Calibrated measurement (calibrations locked)
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Filters: Green, ND
  • Bright/Dark Field
  • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC/Nomarski)
  • Top/Bottom Illumination
  • Three Fluorescence Filters (requires training, see main tool page for specs.)
