Olymmpus CX23

Authorized Olympus Distributor for Florida

Olympus CX23 Microscope

The Olympus CX23 was designed for the classroom with it's lightweight design and exceptional optical performance. An inward-facing rotating nosepiece brings a larger working area above the stage, creating easy specimen substitution. Interpupillary adjustments, eyepoint adjustments, and left and right diopter adjustments provide for individual user needs and comfort. For safety, a focus lock helps to prevent objectives from damaging the specimen, and the torque release function helps avert damage if excessive force is exercised on the focus knob or stage. Features like the ergonomic grips, a smooth rounded design, an angled arm for carrying, and cord compartment make this a great solution for your storage and transport needs. With LED illumination, the CX23 is durable, reliable and ready for rugged classroom use. Basic binocular model shown here. Trinocular version available.
