Microscope System Solution

The BX51WI is the ideal instrument for electrophysiological experiments, particularly when an excellent optical system for deep tissue imaging is required. The combination of a water-immersion objective lens with an exceptionally high NA and working distance along with IR-DIC enables unrivalled insights to be gained from specimens. IR-sensitive cameras for visualisation complete this powerful platform.
