Motorized upright fluorescence microscope

Model Information

  • Olympus BX61 with Roper/Photometrics Coolsnap HQ (extended spectral sensitivity)


  • Olympus BX61 motorized upright microscope with fluorescence and phase contrast optics for immunofluorescence imaging
  • Olympus motorized z-axis stage and external filter wheels work with multiwavelengthdichroics for accurate in color registration and imaging speed for FRET
  • Roper Photometrics CoolSnap HQ CCD camera with 70% quantum efficiency for highest resolution imaging
  • Semrock fluorescence filters with the new hard surface coatings that are extremely high contrast and virtually eliminate bleedthrough
