Olympus CX23 Microscope Offers Ruggedness, Dependability, Optical Excellence for Education, Training, Laboratory Use

The CX23 educational microscope is easy to set up, operate and carry, making it perfect for use both by medical students and in laboratory operations that take place in the field and in other nontraditional settings. Built for rugged dependability over years of use, it weighs just 5.9kg (13 pounds), making it the lightest microscope in its class.

Like other instruments in the Olympus CX series, the new microscope features high-performance infinity-corrected optics for bright, clear, crisp images. The stable, color-corrected LED light source delivers reliable, natural-looking illumination, using far less power and lasting many times longer than traditional bulbs. A field number of 20 provides for added efficiency. The user can lock the frame to prevent any possibility of the objective and glass slide coming in contact, helping preventing accidental specimen damage.

The CX series is part of the full range Olympus scientific microscopes for education, clinical consultation, training and research. All are designed to deliver on the Olympus promise of optical excellence, performance and durability. From the flagship FLUOVIEW series of laser scanning confocal and multiphoton microscopes used in leading life science research facilities, through the powerhouse BX3/IX3 series that enable a wide range of live cell imaging applications, and on to the CX series for teaching in universities, field training sites and other educational institutions, Olympus provides microscopy solutions that exceed expectations for the widest variety of applications.
