[Wichtig] Sehr geehrte Anwender von Mikroskopen von Olympus


We have recently discovered that the chrome plating on some of our microscopes objectives can exhibit cracking or peeling, which may result in sharp edges that could cause cuts. These objectives were manufactured during the period of January 1996 through October 2000 and may have been purchased by you as a component of OLYMPUS BX40/50/60, IX50/70 and CX30/40 series microscopes. The affected objectives are model Numbers ACH10X, ACH10XPH, ACH20X, ACH20XPH, ACH40X, ACH40PH, ACH100XO, ACH100XOPH, ACH60X, PLAN4X, PLAN10X, PLAN10OXPH, PLAN20X, PLAN20XPH, PLAN40X, PLAN40XPH, PLAN100XO, PLAN100XOPH.
Effective immediately, the warranty period for these objectives is extended indefinitely.

If you have any of the above listed microscopes models please inspect the objectives to see if there is any evidence of bubbles, cracks or peeling in the chrome plating. Caution should be taken during this inspection as it is possible that you may encounter sharp plating,

Olympus assures you that maintaining the highest quality standards is our highest priority. Therefore, all objectives exhibiting this deterioration will be repaired or replaced at no charge.
