FluoView FV300/IX Tissue Culture Microscope

The Olympus FluoViewTM FV300 is a point-scanning, point-detection, confocal laser scanning microscope designed for biology research applications. Excellent resolution, efficiency of excitation, intuitive user interface and affordability are key characteristics of the Olympus FV300. The confocal system permits simultaneous collection of up to 3 detection channels and may be configured on either the IX2 inverted research microscope platform or the BX2 upright research microscope platform.

Features and Benefits - Confocal microscopy can improve conventional fluorescence images by recording fluorescence generated from the focal plane within the sample, while rejecting all other light coming from above or below the focal plane. The efficient point-scan/pinhole-detection confocal optics of the FluoViewTM systems virtually eliminate out of focus light to produce high-contrast images with superb resolution. The features listed in this section are available on Olympus FV300 microscope system configurations.

FV300 Scanning Unit - The FV300 scanning unit combines maximum optical efficiency with easy, one-touch selection of pinholes and filters under manual control. The system corrects aberrations ranging from the visible to near-infrared wavelengths, allowing aberration-free imaging for a wide range of applications. Included in the unit are a fiber optic coupler for incoming laser light sources, a beam collimator, laser adjustment neutral density filter turret, dichromatic mirrors, polarizer, x-y galvanometer-driven scan mirrors, pinhole turret, photomultipliers, beamsplitters, fluorescence filters, and a collector lens.

FV300 Specifications - The FV300 specification sheet includes information about laser light sources, the scanning unit, microscope combinations, external illumination sources, host computer configuration and requirements, the applications software, and power consumption statistics.

FluoViewTM Brochures - For detailed information about the Olympus FluoViewTM microscope systems and available support equipment for the innovative microscopist, the appropriate brochures may be downloaded. Extensive product photographs, charts, descriptions, sample images, technical specifications, and application notes can help you decide upon the perfect microscope, imaging system, software, and accessories to meet your specific research needs. Included in this section are brochures on research microscopes, digital camera systems, laser systems, objectives, dichromatic mirror units, software, and research microscopes.
