Olympus DSX100 Opto-Digital System Offers Biological Imaging with Smartphone Ease

WALTHAM, Mass., November 12, 2014 – The Olympus DSX100 opto-digital imaging system, a free-angle wide-zoom microscope that combines cutting-edge optical performance with the operational convenience of a smartphone or tablet, is now available for life science imaging.

Ideal for applications such as observing, measuring, selecting or comparing three-dimensional specimens, viewing and collecting data on entire organisms, tissues or organs, documenting specimens in their natural context, and more, the DSX100 provides ease of use and sophistication in the research environment.

The DSX100 comes with a handy touchscreen, quick zoom via pinch/unpinch, multiple observation modes that can be combined at a touch, a best image selection preview option, an easy stitching function for when a specimen is larger than the field of view, the ability to image specimens with uneven depth and curved surfaces, a rotating, free-angle LED ring light to make imaging even easier, and a built-in macro map so users always know exactly where in the specimen they are. With its proprietary, high-quality Olympus optics, ultra-stable base and vibration reduction, the system is designed to provide unmatched imaging and ease of use.
