  • Ergonomically Designed for Long Observation Periods
  • Ideal for Brightfield and Darkfield Observation of Biological Specimens
  • Trinocular Design Available for Camera Compatibility
  • Compatible with Olympus Plan Achromatic Objectives

The Olympus CX43 Biological Microscope is an ergonomically designed microscope used for brightfield and darkfield observation. This microscope system uses Olympus Plan Achromatic Objectives to provide clear, flat images and can accommodate up to five objectives in its revolving nosepiece. The integrated LED illumination produces daylight conditions with consistent color temperature at any brightness, allowing for specimens to be viewed with their natural colors, and has a long lifetime of 60,000 hours. The Olympus CX43 Biological Microscope is ideal for use in education, research, and benchtop environments to observe cells, tissues, and other biological specimens. A trinocular observation tube and camera adapters are available for digital imaging and two specimen holders are available: a plane holder that allows for the specimen to be moved freely and a double slide holder that can retain one large specimen or two specimens in place.
