Three high performance, all-in-one microscope systems from Olympus
streamline live cell, fluorescence and confocal imaging, enabling researchers
to focus on their data and images rather than on the complexities of operating
high-end microscope rigs. The three compact, self-contained systems -
the VivaView™ incubator microscope system, FluoView® FV10i confocal
microscope system and FSX100™ fluorescence microscopy system - are
designed to remove the complexities of setting up and using advanced microscopes.
Their excellent optical performance, small footprint and ease of use combine
to ensure that users can concentrate on their research instead of on their instruments.
All three systems allow users to load samples easily and then capture images
with just a couple of clicks. All integrate world-renowned Olympus UIS2 optics
for exceptional optical performance. And all of these biologist-friendly instruments
can be placed in any lab for easy access and operation - no darkrooms
The VivaView incubator microscope offers researchers the unprecedented ability
to do multi-channel long-term time-lapse observation of living cells without
having to remove cultures from their ideal growth environment. The system can
handle observation of multiple locations in up to eight dishes simultaneously,
for days or weeks at a time, so researchers can better manage, observe, image,
and generate data on cell growth and kinetics, morphology, protein expression
and more. The closed-box system incorporates a true cell culture incubator,
fully motorized inverted microscope, high performance drift-free optics, camera,
computer and easy-to-use software. With its streamlined dish management system,
VivaView offers supreme flexibility, ease of use, and excellent optical performance.
The FluoView FV10i, the latest innovation in the powerful FluoView confocal
microscope system series, is the first commercially available self-contained
confocal laser scanning microscope system. Engineered to work “right out
of the box,” the high performance system is primarily contained in a compact
main unit with multiple integrated functions including a laser combiner, imaging
system, anti-vibration platform and more. Designed with scientists in pharmaceutical,
clinical, stem cell, cell biology and other laboratories in mind, it is perfect
for individual users, smaller biological facilities, labs where a confocal specialist
is not always available, and any user who needs to do confocal imaging of living
cells and tissues. Users can select from water immersion or oil immersion options.
The low-cost spectral system can be delivered immediately and sets-up in minutes
without the need for an anti-vibration table. Almost no training is required
to capture beautiful pictures right away.
The FSX100 Bio Imaging Navigator is a compact, innovative fluorescence and
brightfield microscope and camera system that allows the operator to capture
high quality microscope images with load-and-go simplicity, just by following
a simple guide displayed on the screen. Designed for multi-user facilities and
individual users who don’t want to spend time on complex traditional fluorescence
microscopy system set-up, the system delivers all the quality of world renowned
Olympus optical technologies, but with amazing ease of use and without the need
for a darkroom. Even first-time users can easily navigate through the few short
steps to capture bright, sharp fluorescence and brightfield images in moments,
right in their lab.
