Overview

Designed to Improve Educational Microscopy Workflow

Built with students in mind, the CX23 microscope is not only durable but also reliable. It is easy to carry around the classroom because of these design elements:

  • Small footprint
  • Lightweight
  • Ergonomic non-slip carrying grips

Safety features help ensure that the eyepieces, observation tube, objectives, and stage are protected from damage while it is transported or during prolonged and repeated use.

Outstanding Optical Performance

Uniform LED illumination with consistent color temperature provides vivid colors for all sample types. Economically, the LED lamp is advantageous for its 20,000-hour long lifetime and low power consumption.
The CX23 microscope also provides large field number (FN) of 20, offering a wider field of view. Its specially designed plan achromat objectives help ensure a flat image throughout the field of view.

Applied Technology

Easy to Carry

The CX23 microscope is one of the lightest among analogous use microscopes*, weighing approximately 5.9 kg (13.01 lb).  The non-slip carrying grips and v-shaped handle enable the user to comfortably and safely carry the microscope. The observation tube and eyepieces are secured to the microscope to limit damage and/or loss while it is being moved.

Observation with Comfort

The CX23 microscope is designed to support comfortable observation. Easily adjust the interpupillary distance and eyepoint height to their own comfort and the left and right diopters for appropriate focus for each eye. The locking pin keeps the observation tube in place while use.

Comfort Specimen Manipulation

The CX23 microscope eases specimen handling and the related setting adjustments, owing to its user-oriented design features:

  • Inward-facing rotating nosepiece, enabling easier access to stage, so you can quickly change specimens and easily apply immersion oil if needed
  • Plan achromat objectives with a long working distance, providing better clearance for thick samples and slides
  • Coaxial knobs, which can be easily accessed from either side of the microscope, for quick fine or coarse focusing adjustments

Prevent Microscope/ Specimen Damage

To protect the microscope and specimen, the CX23 is equipped with damage-proofing mechanisms:

  • The focus lock helps prevent the objectives from damaging the specimen.
  • The torque release function protects the coarse focusing knob and stage knob against excess force.

Easy Storage

Storing your CX23 microscope is facilitated by these practical features:

  • Storage compartment located on the back of the microscope for stowing the power cable and AC adaptor
  • Built-in security slot for attaching an anti-theft cable

Improve Your Training Efficiency With a Digital Camera

Share what you are viewing on the CX23 microscope with your classroom/audience, using a digital camera. The trinocular observation tube of the CX23 can be equipped with a digital camera for easy image capturing and recording.
