Olympus introduces DSX-Series of Microscopes

Olympus has launched its new family of opto-digital microscopes; the DSX series.  Consisting of three models: the DSX100 free-angle wide zoom microscope, the DSX500 high resolution upright microscope and the DSX500i high resolution inverted microscope, Olympus can provide a complete inspection system to meet the needs of applications across R&D and quality control. These include inspection and analysis within the automotive industry, palaeontology, geology, PCB manufacture, fibre structure, micro-channels, metallography and the geometry of small parts. The DSX portfolio allows users to work in the way that is most comfortable for them. With no microscope binoculars, the systems are highly ergonomic, allowing samples to be visualised on-screen. Furthermore, the microscopes can be controlled quickly and easily via the intuitive touch-screen interface, or using a more traditional computer mouse. All three members of the DSX family operate in the same computer-based manner, meaning that operators can easily move from one model to another without the need for specific training. Image analysis is highly intuitive, with the DSX preview screen facilitating the quick and simple selection of the best optical technique, without the need for any time-consuming adjustments. The system will automatically generate a selection of preview images which are shown as thumbnails for each technique - brightfield, darkfield, differential interference contrast (DIC) -all the user needs to do is touch the screen to indicate their preferred imaging approach.
Suited for all users
Providing an option to suit all users, there are a number of selectable modes. The tutorial mode helps to guide operators who are new to the process, while the advanced mode provides an additional level of flexibility to a user with a basic level of knowledge. Furthermore, the operator mode allows customisation of the interface so as only the required functionality is visible for routine work. The operator mode also allows user profiles to be set-up so as specific protocols, especially those of the more advanced user which have been fine-tuned and tailored to specific requirements, can be quickly and easily saved and recalled. Combining functionality such as HDR (high dynamic range) and WiDER with an advanced optical zoom and dedicated objective lenses, high resolution images can be obtained effortlessly at the best size for each application. The new zoom optics reduce halation and glare to provide images of the best possible clarity, while the dedicated lenses fuse superior optics with sophisticated image processing for precise, accurate and repeatable measurements, every time. The DSX series of opto-digital microscopes sets a new bar for optical microscopy and non-confocal metrology.
