Microscope SZX16

Olympus Stereo Microscope SZX16

PT Wadya Prima Mulia as the Exclusive Distributor for Evident-Olympus in Indonesia, provides SZX16 Stereo Microscope and other products.

Optical Superiority

Designed for advanced research, the SZX16 stereo microscope’s darkfield and polarization capabilities, 0.3 numerical aperture, and large 16.4:1 zoom ratio enable you to image whole organisms down to fine microscopic and individual cell structures.

The versatile SZX16 stereo microscope is designed for very demanding applications with the ability to resolve 900 line pair/mm. Utilize the full zoom range (0.7x–11.5x) with our dual turret. The extendable eyepoint adjuster provides comfortable posture for users of different heights.

Advanced Stereo with Wide Zoom Ratio

Outstanding Optical Performance

SZX16’s optics, which include observation tubes, zoom body, and objectives are fully apochromatic to reduce chromatic blur over the entire magnification range. The SDF (Super Depth of Focus) objectives can deliver clear and high-contrast images of virtually any specimen. The maximum NA of 0.3 produces a resolution of 900 linepairs per millimeter allowing clear visualization of fine microscopic cell and cell component structures. Such amazing resolution and peerless magnification makes work more efficient, more precise and reveals much more information from samples.

Choice of Suitable Contrast and Observation Method


With a slim 41.5 mm design, that is approximately half the thickness of previous halogen lamp transmitted light illumination bases, new LED transmitted light illumination bases have a lower height to enable a low eyepoint and easy access to base-mounted samples during observation and operation.

The LED illumination base SZX2-ILLTQ with quad position turret enables the user to choose cartridges and to switch from brightfield (standard/high/low), oblique (standard/high/low), darkfield, polarized illumination, and shutter with a simple turn. A one position LED illumination base is also an option (SZX2-ILLTS). This makes the SZX16 a flexible all-in-one microscope for various samples and observation tasks. Another advantage of LED illumination is a cooler base surface, which is suitable for long duration manipulation of live specimens. Power consumption is lower than a conventional 30W halogen light source. A life cycle of over 60,000 hours significantly reduces operation costs.

Practical Design for Advanced Research

Ample Working Space for Manipulation

Any type of manipulation under a microscope requires an ample space between the top of the sample and the bottom of the objective for the tools. The objectives available for the SZX16 have large working distance, which enable the use of both manual and automated manipulation and injection tools. Moreover, since the front end of the high-magnification 1.6x and 2x objectives is tapered, the available movement range for manipulator is significantly increased.

Motorized Solutions

The SZX16 motorized focus drive simplifies both focusing and zooming through use of a hand switch. It makes digital documentation with extended focal imaging (EFI) efficient and fully automatic. This even allows creation of pseudo 3D images, closing the gap between documentation and what the eyes have seen before through the stereoscopic lightpath. To facilitate automated inspections the Olympus cellSens software offers all the tools required from simple 2D measurements up to complex phase analysis in an easy to use environment.
