Olympus BX43

The Olympus BX43 dual view light microscope is coupled with an SC100 camera and Olympus CellSens software. Its superior optics combine with true-color LED illumination for excellent color rendering for digital imaging. It is equipped with dual viewing and connected to a Dell Precision 9020 with two monitors, so it is ideal for teaching/multi-viewer use. Its ergonomic design maximizes efficiency.


Projects are initiated by a meeting of the user, principal investigator, Core Director and Core Manager.  Contact Mr. Tej Shrestha.  
The Core provides individual training.  
Trained users coordinate instrument use via the Scheduler.



Nanotechnology core facility equipment use is currently free for properly trained persons, with approval of the lab manager.  However, a fee structure will be implemented long-term.  This fee structure is expected to be similar to that of the other core labs on campus.
