Olympus MVX 10

Description of the microscope:

Intuitive design: The Olympus MVX10 is designed to be an intuitive macro fluorescence imaging system, which makes it easy to use for researchers who need to quickly change magnification with little refocusing required for 3D observation of small objects in brighfield or fluorescence.

Flexible magnification range: The parafocal 1X and 2X objectives and two-position revolving nose-piece allow for quick switching between objectives and an uninterrupted magnification range of 6.3x to 125x, which can be increased to an effective magnification of 250X with the 2X magnification change slider. This makes the microscope versatile for efficient, fast, and precise fluorescence observation, screening, and imaging.

Efficiency and resolution: The single-zoom optical path with a large diameter is optimized to collect light with efficiency and resolution at all magnifications. This makes the microscope an ideal tool for researchers who need high-quality imaging.

Overall, the intuitive design, flexible magnification range and efficiency and resolution, make the Olympus MVX10 stereomicroscope a valuable tool for macro fluorescence imaging needs.
