Olympus CX43 Microscope

There are numerous benefits in the great design of the Olympus CX43 microscope. Features include uniform illumination with consistent color temperature, ability to select and save contrast level, and capability to change magnification without adjusting the condenser. The CX43 provides superb optical performance for flat images over a wide field of view. Ergonomic user features include single-hand specimen placement, a low-positioned nosepiece for smooth magnification change with minimal arm movement, and an low positioned focus knob for hand and forearm comfort with limited need for movement. Along with the low-positioned ergonomic stage and eyepiece position, this microscope is designed to reduce fatigue and increase productivity. The CX43 is an excellent choice for your medical or veterinary clinic, or educational setting.
