Olympus Upright Microscope BX46

Built to meet the demands of repetitive routine microscopy, the BX46 Upright microscope has features that help you remain comfortable while you’re working. The stage is fixed so it is close to your desk’s surface, keeping it nearer to your hands. Samples are focused on using the movable nosepiece.

Easy, Ergonomic Manual Stage Movement

The low-position handles and low-torque stage make it easy to move the specimen with a simple finger tap so you can keep your arms and hands resting in a comfortable position.

LED Made for Clinical Research Applications

The LED’s color rendering index is similar to a halogen bulb with a daylight filter. Stains look the same as if you were using a traditional daylight filtered halogen lamp and similar colors can be differentiated. Unlike a halogen light source, the LED has an estimated 20,000-hour lifetime.

Stay Comfortable with the Ergonomic Tube

The tube moves up and down, tilts, and extends forward and back. With this one component, users of nearly any height can adjust the scope so that they’re comfortable.

Designed for User Comfort

The BX46 microscope is engineered to help you to maintain your ideal, ergonomic posture while you work. The design enables you to keep your back and neck upright, allowing the spinal column to assume its natural curvature. With the ultra-low stage, you can maintain an ergonomic, 90-degree elbow angle.

Easy Sample Navigation

The low-torque stage with eco grip XY controls reduces the force required to navigate around a sample. Combined with the ultra-low stage, you shouldn’t have to lift your hand while scanning a sample.

Fast Image Acquisition

Mount the remote exposure knob to either side of the microscope to acquire images without taking your eyes off the sample.

Polarized Light Observation

Use the BX46 microscope for polarized light observation by inserting an analyzer into the nosepiece. A rotating stage can replace the standard mechanical stage to further improve the process.

Tailor to Your Imaging

You can easily adapt the BX46 microscope for advanced research or conferencing. Our digital cameras and cellSens imaging software* offer the ability to capture histological stains with pixel-precise fidelity.
