Olympus BX60

    Olympus BX60 upright fluorescence microscope is a good tool for brightfield and fluorescence imaging. It is equipped with a cooled DP71 digital camera which is suitable for both fluorescence and colour imaging (Bayer colour filter). The microscope has 4x, 10x, 20x, 40x and 100x objectives. Fluorescence filters include DAPI, FITC and rhodamine.
