Description

Olympus CKX53 Inverted Microscope for routine and research applications

With improved image quality and ergonomics, the Olympus CKX53 delivers stable performance and a more efficient cell culture process for a variety of cell culture needs including live cell observation, cell sampling and handling, image capture, and fluorescence observation.

The high contrast achieved by the CKX53 iPC system quickly provides a clear view without needing to change the ring slit from the 4X to 40X objective. Performing simplified and efficient cell observation, for faster cell culture operations is made possible.

Lasting longer than halogen bulbs, the energy-saving LED light source of the CKX53 delivers reliable colour reproducibility as well as a uniform and clear image over the whole visual field with a field number (FN) of 22. The energy-saving performance of CKX53 guarantees a clear and stable view.

Features

Live Cell Observation

Acquire clear, reproducible and high contrast images with a wide visual field, made possible by the CKX53’s long life LED and integrated Phase Contrast system. Additionally, the newly developed inversion contrast (IVC) technique provides clear three-dimensional views.

Cell Sampling and Handling

The CKX53 offers easier and more efficient cell sampling and handling in a clean bench environment, because of its small size and lightweight design. The user-orientated design and simple operation of the holder and manual stage maximises performance and usability.

Image Capture

Equipped with a standard camera port, the CKX53 can be optionally paired with a scientific camera, allowing users to quickly obtain clear images in brightfield illumination, phase contrast, inversion contrast and fluorescence imaging.

Fluorescence Observation

During fluorescence observation with the CKX53, a wide range of fluorescence dyes can be used by changing the mirror unit. With the increased filtering ability of the fluorescence mirror units, high contrast fluorescence images with a high signal to noise ratio can be reliably obtained even when the fluorescence is relatively weak. Additionally, with the aid of the CKX53’s 100W mercury lamp, clear and bright fluorescence observation is enabled

Ergonomic Advantages for Easy and Smooth Operation

Whether observing in a standing or seated position, the 45-degree optical access and the placement of the butterfly-shaped observation tube against the stage allows for ergonomic cell observation. Sterile work can be quickly started and finished, allowing cells to be returned to the incubator in a shorter time.

Additionally, the power switch is placed directly under the observation tube located along the stage. The operating components such as the power switch and the knob for switching the light path are placed close together to enhance the operability of the CKX53.

Easy Handling of Any Type of Cell Culture Containers

Using the universal holder with the CKX53, it is possible to easily view cells that were cultured in a variety of containers, such as dishes, microplates, and flasks. Also, when the optional holder is attached, a maximum of three 35 mm dishes can be accommodated on the stage.

Microplates can be handled without a holder, and the well “address” of the microplate can be identified quickly using the grid for each well position on the CKX3-MVR manual stage.

When viewing a 96-well plate, each 90-degree rotation of the stage knob moves the well position one at a time, allowing intuitive handling of the microplate during observation.
