Olympus’ CX3 series — get comfortable in your routine

Olympus’ ergonomic CX3 series microscopes deliver superior comfort and reduced fatigue during long periods of routine microscopy. With a maintenance - and centring-free LED light source and a range of ergonomic features, the CX43 and CX33 are ideal for high-throughput and regular use.

Combining exceptional user comfort with bright, uniform illumination, Olympus has launched two new microscopes optimised for long periods of routine observation. In the design of the CX43 and CX33 microscopes, frequently-used controls have been lowered, allowing a more natural position for the user’s arms during operation.

In both the CX43 and the CX33, the stage is 70 mm lower than the previous model, resulting in a large working space under the eyepiece that makes it easier to check or swap samples with just one hand. The stage and co-axial focus knobs have also been lowered, so users can reach these controls while their forearms remain on the desk. The low-positioned revolving nosepiece with finger rest accommodates up to five objectives and enables users to quickly change magnification with minimal arm movement.
