Re: How much would a decent DIC microscope setup with Plan Fluors cost in Australia?

I have a nikon eclipse 80i with fluorescence in great condition that would just love to be outfitted with the DIC gear above. Willing to negotiate a reasonable price if anyone interested... :D

Re: Olympus BH LWD Msplan on BX

Ok this would be for imaging directly onto a c mount usb camera (no pe eyepiece in camera port), for rough centering and manipulating xyz axis of a pen like object at 10-20x. Possibly up to 50x. Not trying to get great resolution or color etc.

Thank you for your input.

Olympus BH LWD Msplan on BX

Hi all,

would the objectives shown in this photo BH2 era MSplan objectives work on a BX era epi fluorescence turret (with brightfield filter cube installed and RMS size nosepiece turret?)

Olympus BX51, 10x objective, no coverslip, crossed polarizers with a BH2 era 530nm tint plate (it fits perfectly inside the u-tad insert). u-spt photo tube, PE2.5x, in conjunction with Leitz phototub...

The tube fittings on the bottom ring are probably water inlet/outlet for temperature control. Maybe from an automated wafer inspection scope?

Re: Rotary Microtome

Don't recognize that model, but the physitemp stage is really cool. I use a similar tabletop leitz freezing microtome hooked up to CO2 and its a pain to use. Good to know theres a retrofit option out there... I also have a ton of 12cm knives from various manufacturers, mostly C type. If you ever nee...
