Key features of the Olympus CX23 biological microscope include:
- Optics: The microscope features high-quality UIS2 optics that provide excellent image clarity and contrast. The objectives have a magnification range of 4x to 40x, and the eyepieces have a magnification of 10x.
- Illumination: The microscope has a built-in LED illumination system that provides bright, uniform lighting to the specimen being observed. The intensity of the light can be adjusted to suit the needs of the user.
- Stage: The microscope’s stage is large and sturdy, and it has coaxial coarse and fine focus controls for precise movement of the specimen. The stage also has a slide holder and two slide clips for securing the specimen in place.
- Condenser: The microscope has an Abbe condenser with an adjustable aperture diaphragm that collects and focuses the light from the illumination source onto the specimen to improve image quality.
- Ergonomic design: The microscope has a compact, lightweight design that makes it easy to transport and store. It also has ergonomic features, such as a low-positioned focus knob and a height-adjustable stage, that make it comfortable to use for extended periods of time.
