The Olympus FSX100 Bio Imaging Navigator all-in-one microscope system is a compact, fluorescence microscope and camera system that allows the operator to capture high quality microscope images by following a guide displayed on the screen.
Designed for use by less experienced microscope users and in multi-user facilities, the system delivers the quality of Olympus’ optical technologies with one-touch simplicity. First-time users can easily navigate through the few short steps to capture high quality fluorescence images in moments, according to the company.
The FSX100 automates complicated adjustments such as fluorescence filter switching, brightness adjustment, camera exposure times, and focusing that used to be done manually. The user turns on the power, opens the cover, loads a specimen, and closes the cover. An image of the specimen is focused, observed, and captured just by clicking the mouse.
The FSX100 works well in a brightly lit room and can be installed in small locations. The system includes a high-resolution objective, a digital camera for capturing high quality images, and an outer housing that creates the essential darkroom-type conditions for fluorescence imaging.
