Dr. Laura Smith, Biologist

In the intricate world of scientific discovery and detailed examination, the Olympus SZX16 stands as a paragon of microscopy excellence. This advanced stereo microscope offers unparalleled optical performance, catering to the diverse needs of modern researchers and professionals.

Olympus SZX16 Key Features

  • Exceptional Optical Quality: The SZX16 boasts Olympus’s cutting-edge optics, providing crystal clear images with high resolution and excellent depth of field.
  • Wide Zoom Range: One of the broadest zoom ranges in its class allows for detailed examination of specimens, ranging from macroscopic overviews to microscopic details.
  • Versatile Illumination Options: The microscope is compatible with various illumination techniques, enhancing its adaptability to research requirements.
  • Ergonomic Design: Designed with user comfort in mind, it reduces fatigue during prolonged use, a crucial feature for intensive research.
  • Advanced Imaging Capabilities: It integrates seamlessly with digital cameras and imaging software, facilitating detailed analysis and documentation of findings.

Applications in Scientific Research

  • Biological Studies: Ideal for detailed anatomical studies, developmental biology research, and cellular analysis.
  • Material Science: Used extensively in examining material surfaces, cross-sections, and composites.
  • Industrial Inspection and Quality Control: This is critical in inspecting electronic components, machinery parts, and other industrial products.
  • Forensic Analysis: Its precision makes it a valuable tool in forensic laboratories for evidence examination.

Advanced Stereo with Wide Zoom Ratio

Outstanding Optical Performance

SZX16’s optics, which include observation tubes, zoom body, and objectives, are fully apochromatic to reduce chromatic blur over the entire magnification range. The SDF (Super Depth of Focus) objectives can deliver clear, high-contrast images of virtually any specimen.

The maximum NA of 0.3 produces a resolution of 900 line pairs per millimeter, allowing clear visualization of fine microscopic cell and cell component structures. Such exceptional resolution and peerless magnification make work more efficient and precise, revealing more information from samples.

Wide 16.4:1 Zoom Ratio

The SZX16 boasts a wide zoom ratio of 16.4:1, enabling 7x-115x magnification with a 1x objective and up to 230x magnification with a 2x objective. This wide zoom range makes it suitable for many research applications, with low-magnification macro views for dissection and specimen manipulation and sharp high-magnification views for close observation of microstructures.

Practical Design for Advanced Research

Ample Working Space for Manipulation

Any manipulation under a microscope requires ample space between the top of the sample and the bottom of the objective for the tools. The objectives available for the SZX16 have a significant working distance, which enables the use of both manual and automated manipulation and injection tools. Moreover, since the front end of the high-magnification 1.6x and 2x objectives is tapered, the available movement range for the manipulator is significantly increased.
