BX53 Research Microscope

The new BX53 provides advanced modularity to suit a variety of observation styles. The rigid, compact space-saving frame features forward-mounted, easy-to-operate controls for improved efficiency and greater operator comfort. New operator controls are accessible from either side of the microscope, and an ECO sensor automatically turns off the transmitted light when the operator is not seated at the microscope. True to the Olympus philosophy, the BX53 offers an extended range of accessories and objectives to satisfy today’s most discerning microscopists.
