Olympus IX83 - Live Imaging Microscope

Medizinische Universität Wien

Wien | Website



Our Live Imaging Microscope is an inverted wide field microscope. It is equipped with an environmental control and different small incubation chambers for CO2 and humidity supply. As a sensitive and fast camera, the hamamathsu orca flash 4 sCMOS is used for image acquisition. Furthermore it offers a motorized stage, Z – drift compensation, LED light sources, DIC optics, phase contrast and filtersets for DAPI, FITC, Cy3, Cy5, CFP und YFP.

The system supports following applications (- or combinations thereof):
• Z-staple (3D)
• Time Series
• Multiple Positions
• Tiles
• Live Cell Imaging
• FRET- Acquisition
