Olympus Model IX71
Fluorescence Microscope
Phase Contrast

USD $15,500.00


MODEL: Olympus IX71
Shipping Cost: To be determined


Photography Port:

  • Complete photography solution with a camera port on side of the frame. We can provide optional camera attachments and camera equipment.

Special Features:

  • Vertical Illuminator for Reflected Fluorescence.
  • Halogen Transmitted Illumination for Brightfield and Phase Contrast Microscopy.
  • Olympus Model TH4-100 External Power supply for Halogen Illuminator. 100 Watt.
  • Right Handed stage with Low Position XY Mechanical Stage Movement. Many stages are simple plain stationary with no XY movement. This movement feature is an expensive option. A mechanical stage alone would be over $2000 new.
  • Condenser: N.A 0.55. Has phase annuli for Ph1 and Ph2.
  • 6-Place Objective Nosepiece.
  • Magnification Selector Knob on side of frame. Push in for 1x. Pull out for 1.6x. This is a great way to increase magnification without needing to change lenses.

Objective Lenses:

  • UPlanFl 4x (NOT phase)
  • UPlanFl 10x, /-. Ph1. Phase.
  • LUCPlanFl 20x, 0-2mm with correction collar. Ph1. Phase.
  • LUCPlanFl 40x, 0-2mm with correction collar. Ph2. Phase.

Binocular Viewing Head:

  • Centering Telescope on head. Includes Focusing Ring. Use this when doing the alignment of the phase annulus rings in the condenser.
  • Note: Photos show it turned upward. Manual shows the head rotated 180 degrees with this facing downward. It can easily be rotated.

Dichroic Fluorescence Filter Sets:

  • 6-Place Cube Turret.
  • We will install these new filter sets from Chroma: DAPI, FITC, TRITC.
  • They are the new style Chroma filters that are hard coated and given a lifetime warranty directly by Chroma.

Fluorescent Illumination System:

  • X-Cite Series 120Q Metal Halide by Lumen Dynamics. Fiber Optic cable to vertical illuminator on microscope. This system has a number of advantages over the standard HBO 100W Mercury Illuminator. For one, it doesn’t have the typical alignment issues since it is fiber optic.

General Notes:

  • A minor issue, but we always mention anything that is noteworthy. Missing the rubber grip on the left knob, for condenser up/down movement. It is on the right side.
  • Power cords are included but not shown in the images.
  • This reconditioned microscope is in excellent working order and has been completely checked out and serviced.
