Olympus IX-71 Inverted Widefield Fluorescence Microscope for Spatial Genomics and Histology

Olympus IX-71 Inverted Widefield Fluorescence MicroscopeOlympus IX-71 microscope with a motorized stage and Nikon DS-Fi3 camera. Differential Interference Contrast(DIC), Phase contrast and fluorescence modalities are available.

DS-Fi3 color camera is equipped with a 5.9 megapixel CMOS image sensor, which enables the capture of high-definition images of up to 2880 x 2048 pixels.

NIS/Br-Elements software provides comprehensive control of acquisition, analysis, and visualization. Many biological applications require working with large samples such as Spatial Genomics and Histology. NIS-Elements makes it easy to perform large (full slide) image scanning and automated stitching.

The Olympus IX-71 provides 3-color fluorescence excitation with DAPI, FITC and Rhodamine emission filters.
