  • High-Quality Imaging: Highlight the microscope’s advanced optics that provide clear, high-contrast images, enabling detailed observation and documentation of cell cultures.
  • LED Illumination: Discuss the benefits of its energy-efficient, long-lasting LED light source, which provides consistent and optimal illumination for various samples.
  • Phase Contrast and Fluorescence Capabilities: Mention its phase contrast and fluorescence imaging options, essential for enhanced visualization of live cells and specific cellular components.

Why Labs Should Choose the Olympus CKX53

  • Enhanced Cell Observation: Emphasize the microscope’s ability to provide detailed views of cell cultures, aiding in accurate analysis and research.
  • User-Friendly Operation: The CKX53’s intuitive design and easy operation make it accessible to experienced researchers and beginners.
  • Versatility in Applications: Suitable for various applications, from basic cell culture to more advanced research involving live cell imaging and fluorescence.
  • Reliable and Durable: Built with Olympus’s quality standards, ensuring reliability and durability for long-term use in lab environments.

Fast Cell Observation with the Integrated Phase Contrast (iPC) System

  • High contrast provides a clear view of cells at 4x, 10x, 20x, and 40x without the need to exchange or re-center the ring slit
  • Phase contrast system facilitates simple and efficient cell observation for a faster, more comfortable workflow

Efficient Cell Screening with a Clear, Wide View

  • Efficiently screen for desired cells thanks to the ring slit for the PLN2X objective, which offers a 22 mm field of view and an 11 mm diameter
  • 2X objective provides noticeably higher contrast than other objectives, so even transparent objects in the sample can be identified

Small Footprint Enables In-Hood Sterilization

The Olympus CKX53 microscope fits on a clean lab bench and can remain there during UV sterilization, thanks to its UV-resistant coating. The system is about 7 kg (15.4 lb), lighter than the previous model, and has a smaller footprint, so it takes up less space in your lab. You can move the microscope with one hand, and it’s easy to carry it by the neck of the observation tube. The base’s sliding pad makes it easy to position.

Easy Cell Sampling in a Sterile Bench Environment

The short distance between the viewpoint and the optical axis/focus knob facilitates natural hand positioning and makes focusing and cell sampling easier.

Accommodates a Variety of Cell Culture Containers

  • The universal holder makes it easy to view cells cultured in various containers, including dishes, microplates, and flasks.
  • Three 35 mm dishes can fit on the stage with the optional holder attachment.
  • Different types of microplates can be accommodated without the holder

Comprehensive Observation for a Multilayer Tissue Flask

  • The microscope’s width and easily detachable condenser enable you to view containers, such as multilayer tissue flasks, up to 190 mm (7.5 in.) in height
  • The PLCN4X objective’s depth of focus makes it easy to observe cells in the two bottom layers of a multilayer flask

Flexibility to Use Larger Cell Culture Containers

  • Lift the holder’s arm to position culture containers manually
  • Expand the stage up to 70 mm (2.8 in.) to the left and right for greater handling flexibility

Applications in Research and Clinical Labs

Describe how the Olympus CKX53 is used in various settings:

  • Biomedical Research: For studying cellular behavior, drug effects, and more.
  • Clinical Laboratories: In diagnostic procedures and tissue culture studies.
