BX51WI & BX61WI Fixed Stage Research Microscopes

The BX WI Series is designed as a special-purpose research microscope for electrophysiology. The BX WI Series provides the stability crucial for patch clamping and is equipped with dedicated water immersion objectives designed for near IR illumination at 775 and 990nm. The optical system is tailored for high-contrast, high-resolution imaging under the challenging conditions of thick brain slice observation.
