Olympus Eco-Products Inverted Microscope - Model CKX41SF
- Call for information on objectives
- 90-day warranty
The CKX series make cell checking quicker and easier than ever before. Simple to operate, they require minimal optical adjustments and capture superb images with outstanding efficiency. A compact design allows installation inside cell culture clean benches and right beside the incubator, improving safety and saving time spent on transporting specimens for observation. The CKX41 also features a tilting observation tube, allowing the user to use the system while standing, or a trinocular observation tube, compatible with a range of cameras.
Through the preservation of image intensity, the UIS2 infinity-corrected optical system delivers improved resolution and contrast. Additionally, the maximum field of view has been extended to FN 22, allowing the usage of multiple upright observation tubes.
By simplifying the light path, UIS2 optics improve flatness for 10 to 15%, enabling clear, high contrast images that extend to the edge of the field of view.
The PHC type objectives are minimally affected by the surface tension of the culture fluid, which compromises clarity at the image periphery. Multi-well observation is greatly improved from this feature. Combining this with the improved flatness from the UIS2 optics results in clear uniform observation at the cellular level.
Consistent directional contrast is maintained throughout all magnifications. Additionally, the slider is controlled by a simple lever and utilizes a common aperture between 20x and 40x, maximizing ease-of use and reducing time spent making optical adjustments.
Vertical slider installation prevents accidental touching of the manipulators while making optical adjustments.
Effortless three channel fluorescence is accomplished with UIS2 filters (blue, green, UV) and objectives, while UV transmission is secured from an improved illuminator.
Pre-centered phase contrast slider maximizes efficiency by eliminating the task of centering and exchanging ring slits when changing magnification. By minimizing the amount of optical adjustment, routine imaging can be completed easily.
The binocular tube has a 30-60 degree tilting range, allowing for flexible observation and streamlined usage between incubator and microscope. Tilting binoculars greatly improves ergonomics when working at a clean bench.
The major features that make these inverted microscopes Eco-Products:
- Lead and arsenic-free Eco-glass is used for all optics, such as lenses and prisms
- 100% lead-free soldering
- Hexavalent chromium and lead are no longer used in metal parts, or for surface treatment
- Material identification marks are placed on the main molded resin parts and die-cast parts to accelerate recycling
Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests, please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.
The photos above are representative. Please bear in mind that the equipment shown is currently in storage in our warehouse and that in addition to testing each machine we will clean all the equipment thoroughly prior to shipment. We often have multiple units of each model in stock and sometimes we're unable to feature photos of every single unit. At your request, we can provide photos of the equipment in your order after it has been tested and cleaned.
