*1 In some cases, when using phase contrast to observe your specimen in plastic vessels whose bottom thickness is less than 1mm (<1mm), a ghost image of the phase ring may appear. It is suggested to use plastic vessels whose bottom thickness is 1mm or greater to avoid this ghost image. Please note that the ghost image is only apparent with the Macro objective and phase contrast observation method.
<Plastic vessels whose bottom thicknesses are confirmed by OLYMPUS Corp. to be 1mm or greater (August 2009)>

*2 Not available for phase contrast, selection of start position, macro image framing, autofocus and stitching images.
*3 Not available for ultra violet fluorescence and automatic focus.
*4 Image stitching process is performed by the other application software "cellSens" . (The cellSens "Dimension" grade is required.)
The oil-immersion objective UPLSAPO60XO with NA1.35 is available for fluorescence photomicrography with higher resolution and higher S/N. It is recommended that this optional objective be used with Olympus low auto-fluorescence immersion oil.
LCACHN40XPHP is available for fluorescence or phase contrast photomicrography with a plastic vessel with a 1 mm-thick bottom. The phase plate is the pre-centered type and thus, there is no need for adjustment of position alignment of ring slit.
One additional UIS2 mirror unit may be installed as optional accessory.
