About

System for general purpose imaging. The system has bright field, dark-field, DIC imaging mode and Three fluorescence filters. Screen captures and calibrated measurements can be made through use of native Olympus' Streams Essential Software, installed on the attached computer.

Detailed Specifications

  • Native Olympus Streams Essentials software & Camera:
    • Digital image capture & calibrated measurement (calibrations locked)
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Reflected (Episcopic) & Transmitted (Diascopic) Illumination modes
  • Filters via rotatable selector:
    • BF: Bright Field normal top-illuminated imaging
    • DF: Dark-Field imaging
    • DIC: Differential Interference Contrast "Nomarski" Imaging. Also requires "DIC-R" prism to be inserted. Polarization manually selected on DIC-R prism.
  • Fluorescence Filters (see Olympus tutorial):
    • You must contact Tony Bosch for training on Fluorescence before using this feature!!!
    • WB: "Blue" Fluorescence Filter. Excitation: 450-480nm / Dichroic 500nm / Barrier 515nm+
    • WG: "Green" Fluorescence Filter. Excitation: 510-550nm / Dichroic 570nm / Barrier 590nm+
    • WU: "Ultraviolet" Fluorescence Filter. Excitation: 330-385nm / Dichroic 400nm / Barrier 420nm+
