Olympus Fluorescent Binocular Microscope


The Olympus SZX16 is designed for advanced research with a maximum numerical aperture (NA) of 0.3, producing a superior resolution of 900 line pairs per mm. The binocular provides a large zoom ratio of 11.5:1. with this seamless zoom ratio combined with the most comprehensive range of parfocal objectives (0.8x & 1.6x ), the SZX16 can take you from a macro-view to a micro-view allowing visualization of whole organism down to fine microscopic structures such as cells.




    •  Large Field of View (104.8 mm)
    •  Maximum magnification (230x)
