With improved image quality and ergonomics, the Olympus CKX53 delivers excellent performance and a comfortable workflow for a variety of cell culture needs including live cell observation, cell sampling and handling, image capture, and fluorescence observation. Fast and Efficient Cell Observation with the Integrated Phase Contrast (iPC) System The high contrast achieved by the CKX53 iPC system provides a clear view of cells at 4x, 10x, 20x, and 40x without the user having to exchange or re-center the ring slit. The new phase contrast system facilitates simple and efficient cell observation for a faster, more comfortable workflow. Clear, Wide View with the 2X Objective and FN 22 The ring slit for the PLN2X objective, CKX3-SLPAS, has a 22 mm field of view and an 11 mm diameter. As a result, observation using the objective is perfect for efficiently screening desired cells, enabling a faster cell culture process. The 2X objective provides noticeably higher contrast that other objectives, allowing even transparent objects in the sample to be clearly identified. For example, when viewing a 96-well microplate, the wide visual field enables all the cells in a well to be observed without needing to move the stage. Experience 3D Views Driven by the “Inversion Contrast” (IVC) Technique With this newly developed IVC technique, the depth of field is narrower than that of the phase contrast making it possible to render clear three-dimensional images for objects of any shape or transparency.
