Flexible Stereo with Wide Zoom Ratio

Excellent Optical Performance with Natural View

The SZX10 is designed to provide a natural view of the specimen with excellent stereo and color representation. The DFPlan series combines high-NA resolving power and working comfort with "distortion-free" optical design for exceptionally flat imaging, and includes a 2x objective lens with an NA of 0.2 for high-resolution imaging at 600 linepair per millimeter.

Wide 10:1 Zoom Ratio

The SZX10 covers a magnification range of 6.3x to 63x with its 1x objective, and offers up to 123x magnification with a 2x objective. Thanks to this wide-ranging 10:1 zoom ratio versatility, it's a good choice for life science applications that require low-magnification macro views for dissection and specimen manipulation, and sharp high-magnification views for close observation of cell structures.

Digital Imaging and Documentation

The SZX10 can also be equipped with a trinocular tube and Olympus DP series digital camera for high-resolution imaging and research documentation. DP series cameras offer the high sensitivity for a wide range of applications, including high-sensitivity fluorescence imaging, and can be easily controlled using Olympus cellSens software.
