The fully motorized IX83 is the most advanced member of the IX3 series of inverted imaging systems and offers a new level of application flexibility. Choose from the one-deck system with a low, ergonomic stage or the two-deck system with additional expansion capabilities. Both provide the ability to perform a multitude of imaging applications, from long-term time-lapse imaging and other demanding techniques to routine testing and documentation. Users can mold the components and controls to best suit their workflow.
Features and Benefits
Features and BenifitsExpandable to Meet Growing Research Needs
The unique open frame of the IX83 provides ready access to the light path, thus making it easy to add or change modules. A variety of deck modules can be easily exchanged to add or remove functions as needed. With a simple slide-in design, the IX3-ZDC2 Z drift compensator module can be easily added to any IX83 system to maintain continuous focus throughout an extended time-lapse experiment.
Ideally Suited for Live Cell Imaging
Easily capture dynamic cellular processes with the IX83, an imaging system designed for remarkable time-lapse imaging. With new frame architecture and focus drive design, the IX3 system offers enhanced rigidity that reduces the impact of vibration and temperature. It maintains desired positions along the X, Y, and Z axes to facilitate reliable time-lapse and multipoint imaging.
Reliable, Clear and Bright High-Resolution Images
Olympus UIS2 infinity-corrected optics ensure high optical transmittance with a broad range of objectives. UIS2 optics feature wide chromatic correction and enable high resolution, high S/N primary images regardless of the observation method. The wide field of view and Fly-Eye lens system provide uniform fluorescence images and enable the use of sCMOS cameras with large sensors.
Interchangeable Modules Provide Flexible Imaging Options
The large open frame allows a motorized emission filter wheel to be fitted within the infinity space of the microscope. This eliminates image shift between channels and allows the eyepieces to see what the camera detects.
