BX46 Clinical Microscope

The new BX46 was engineered from the ground up with ergonomic and economic concerns in mind. From the lowest stage height and most adjustable observation tube on the market, to the standard Olympus color-balanced LED, the BX46 provides exceptional stability and accuracy in specimen viewing and positioning.

The new tilting, telescoping and lifting observation tube ensures that every BX46 user can adjust the microscope to suit their individual needs. This ergonomic flexibility helps the operator maintain a comfortable posture, especially beneficial for prolonged observation periods.

UIS2 Optics

  • The Olympus Super Apochromat objectives compensate for both spherical and chromatic aberrations, from UV to the near infrared region. Highly recommended for fluorescence applications, UPLSAPO lenses ensure the acquisition of sharp, clear images, without color shift, even in brightfield observation.
  • Available in 4x, 10x, 20x, 20x oil, 40x, 40x oil, 60x and 100x oil.
  • Designed for unsurpassed resolution and contrast, Plan Apochromat objectives reduce chromatic aberration to an absolute minimum.
  • Available in 1.25x, 2x and 60x oil.
UPFLN Series
  • These plan objectives provide flat images with high transmission up to the near infrared region of the spectrum. Featuring a high signal to noise ratio, excellent resolution and high contrast imaging, they are especially effective in brightfield observation.
  • Available in 4x, 10x, 20x, 40x, 40x oil, 60x, 60x oil and 100x oil.
  • Universal phase contrast objectives that provide the same critical optical performance as the UPLFLN series, but especially engineered for phase contrast applications.
  • Available in 4xPH, 10xPH, 20xPH, 40xPH, 60xPH oil and 100xPH oil.
PLN Series
  • Ideal for a range of clinical and research applications, these high quality objectives feature excellent flatness beyond the field of view in transmitted brightfield observations.
  • Available in 2x, 4x, 10x, 40x, 50x oil and 100x oil.
PLN-PH Series
  • Designed for phase contrast applications, these objectives offer the same high optical quality and flatness as the PLN series.
  • Available in 10x, 20x, 40x and 100x oil.
Coverglass-Free Objectives
  • The Olympus coverglass-free objectives are designed for glass slides without a cover slip. This capability is largely required for observing blood smear specimens.

Special Purpose Objectives

  • Cytology: 10x Plan Achromat CY with built-in neutral density filter that equalizes the light intensity when switching between the 10x and 40x objectives. Eliminates the need to adjust light intensity when switching between the two objectives (for faster, convenient viewing).
  • Hematology: 50x Plan Achromat oil for the image quality of oil with a large field of view. Oil proof function.
  • Pathology: 60x Achromat for high magnification and the convenience of oil-free use.
  • Pathology: 2x Plan Achromat for large field scanning and imaging.
