Olympus Upright Microscope BX63

Flexible and easy to use, the fully motorized BX63 upright microscope uses the motorized nosepiece to focus onto the sample, enabling the stage to be fixed for added stability. The smooth, silent motorized stage is driven by ultrasonic piezo technology for precise operation.

Fast, Efficient Image Capture

Enter observation condition data in the touch panel controller, and it’s automatically transferred to cellSens image analysis software. The process manager enables fully automated multichannel image acquisition.

Control at Your Fingertips

The controller enables you to change observation methods with just a touch. Choose between guidance mode to navigate the procedures currently in use and full mode for access to the entire range of settings. You can save multiple observation points and conditions in advance and quickly recall previously used imaging conditions.

Familiar Focusing and XY Stage Controls

You can detach the stage controller from the frame and place it where it’s most convenient. When used with the ultrasonic stage, it creates a user-friendly workflow with an operation that mimics a manual focusing stage. Switches on the controller enable you to change between different observation methods, objectives, and mirror units while simultaneously selecting intensity adjustments or image capture.

Stable Imaging

The fixed stage facilitates stable, reliable imaging. Samples are focused using the precise motorized nosepiece. Z-stack capture and deconvolution are also highly accurate.

Efficient Motorized Nosepiece and Field Diaphragm

Change objectives using either the remote handset or PC software for efficient imaging. When combined with cellSens software, you can automate advanced imaging techniques that require multiple magnifications.

Even Fluorescence Across the Field of View

Fluorescence illuminators with a fly-eye lens provide homogenous illumination across the entire wavelength spectrum and simplify burner alignment.

Flexible 8-Position Illuminator

Easily changeable mirror units to provide flexibility for a wide variety of fluorescence specimens. The design reduces the need to replace mirror units for multicolor or FISH applications, further accelerating your work.

Mirror Units Optimized for Fluorescence

The fluorescence mirror units have advanced coatings that provide high transmission and steep cut-off slopes. The interior surfaces eliminate over 99% of stray light for high sensitivity and sharp color separation.

High-Transmission Objectives with Reduced Autofluorescence

UIS2 objectives with a high numerical aperture (NA) have chromatic aberration corrections to provide high resolution, even from faint fluorescence signals. Advanced coating technologies reduce autofluorescence and improve the signal-to-noise ratio for flat, high transmission over a wide wavelength.
