Olympus CX43 Microscope


The CX43 microscope enables users to remain comfortable during routine microscopy. The microscope frame well fits the hands, and the location of the control knobs maximize ergonomics to improve work efficiency. Users can quickly set a specimen with one hand while adjusting the focus and operating the stage with the other hand—with minimal movement. This microscope also features a camera port for digital imaging.

The universal condenser offers a variety of observation methods and future upgradability. In combination with the five-position revolving nosepiece, multiple applications can be covered using the single microscope frame.

Uniform Illumination with Consistent Color Temperature
The color temperature of the CX LED illumination produces daylight conditions, so specimens can be viewed with their natural colors. The color temperature is consistent at any brightness, so users don’t have to spend time making adjustments when they change brightness. The LEDs have a long 60,000-hour lifetime in the design value, helping reduce cost, and the brightness level remains stable throughout the LEDs’ life.

Select and Set Your Contrast Level
Users can preserve their favorite contrast by locking the aperture diaphragm. It stays fixed at the optimally chosen position if it is accidentally touched while changing slides.

Excellent Optical Performance for Flat Images
The microscope employs Plan Achromat objectives, which provide clear images with high image flatness over a wide field of view. This helps users view specimens clearly and evenly during routine microscope observations.

Change Magnification without Adjusting the Condenser
Users can change the magnification from 4X to 100X without moving the top lens on the condenser. 2X magnification is also available by simply setting the objective and the condenser turret to 2X position.

Single-Handed Sample Placement
A specimen can be quickly slid in and out using one hand. The specimen holder opens a little and firmly retains the specimen during operation. The versatile holder accommodates a variety of slide types, including a hemocytometer.

Use Up to Five Objectives
For added flexibility, up to five objectives can be supported by the revolving nosepiece. In addition to general objectives, users can select a 2X objective for wide area observation or objectives for phase contrast. These objectives with long working distances help keep specimens from getting damaged.

Smooth Magnification Change
The low-positioned revolving nosepiece enables users to quickly change magnifications with minimal arm movement between focusing, greatly improving work efficiency during prolonged use.

Ergonomically-Positioned Focus Knob
The low-positioned focusing knob enables users to make observations while keeping their hands and forearms rested on the desk, helping provide comfort. The focusing stopper prevents a specimen from accidentally hitting an objective when working under high magnification.

Ergonomic Stage and Eyepiece Position
The low-positioned stage is designed to enhance comfort and reduce fatigue. The stage surface can be widely seen from the eye point position, which enables users to smoothly set and check specimens on the stage. The stage knob can be controlled with just a light touch and can be adjusted at the same time as the focusing knob, since they are located close together.

Specimen Holders that Match Your Observation Style
Stage accessories improve efficiency when users need to observe a large number of specimens. With the specimen holder sheet, a specimen can be freely operated by a finger on the sheet and can be precisely adjusted using the stage knob. The double specimen holder can retain a large specimen or two specimens.
