Smooth Tracking at High Magnification

The IX3-SVR manual stage features a smooth positioning system that enables cells to be easily tracked, even at high magnifications. The observation limits can be set by the user to immobilize the stage, helping to maintain the observation position during operation, including reagent application, even if the stage is inadvertently touched. It's also possible to remove 35 mm dishes from the stage, place them in an incubator, and return them to the exact location previously identified. 

Easily Achieve Köehler Illumination

The condenser can be moved and easily reset to Köehler illumination using the conveniently located condenser lock and control knobs. 

ENCODED UNITS (Optional Peripherals)

A Cost-efficient Way to Upgrade to an Encoded Microscope

A wide range of optional encoded units are available, including an 8-position motorized fluorescent mirror turret, an encoded fluorescence mirror turret, a motorized 6-position nosepiece, an encoded 6-position nosepiece, a motorized long working distance universal condenser, filter wheels and shutters. 

High Contrast under Bright Conditions


Focus on Dim Fluorescent Signals with Intelligently Designed Noise Reduction

The multi-frame live noise reduction (FNR) feature makes it possible to capture low-noise, high-speed images of live specimens in real time. Olympus’ noise reduction technology enables users to obtain sharp fluorescence images, even in weak fluorescence. The FNR feature takes multiple pictures of an image and then removes the random background noise. The camera will stop the FNR only when the stage is moving, making it easier to scan your specimen and focus during fluorescence imaging. 

High Contrast Under Bright Conditions

The unit is designed specifically for fluorescence observation. It efficiently blocks out room light, enhances the contrast of fluorescence, and enables clear fluorescence observation under bright conditions.

Intuitive operation with Olympus cellSens imaging software

Olympus cellSens software is easy to use, powerful, and flexible. Using a modular design, the software can be tailored to your budget and imaging applications. This enables the software to grow and adapt to meet evolving research needs. 


Objectives for Observation Using Plastic Vessel

LUCPLFLN series objectives especially the UCPLFLN20XPH (NA:0.7), are well-suited for observation using plastic dishes. The objectives enable high-resolution observation of the cell proliferation process and deliver improved contrast across a wide area. Now, you no longer have to subculture on a glass-bottom dish.

UIS2 Objectives and High Signal-to-Noise Fluorescence Mirror Units for Efficient Signal Detection

All fluorescence mirror units feature filters treated with a specially developed coating that minimizes noise by absorbing more than 99 % of stray light. The splendid performance and high transmittance of the mirror units help providing efficient fluorescence signal detection.
