Olympus X51 Inverted Microscope

The Scientific Equipment Group of OLYMPUS AMERICA, INC. introduces the IX51 inverted microscopy system for practical convenience and cost-effective performance for live cell study, in vitro fertilization and other cellular injection applications. Improved optics, compact design and the ability to accommodate a large variety of sample vessels enhance performance over previous models.

The modular frame of the IX51, with its smaller footprint, more rigid frame and externally located power supply is a significant improvement over previous inverted microscopes, reducing focus drift and electrical noise that could adversely affect long-term observations. The IX51 frame also accommodates a wide range of culture and specimen containers making observation even easier and more convenient. It also enables easy attachment of multiple items such as manipulators, video and digital camera systems, or a second light source.
