November 9, 2011 - Developed to meet microscopy needs for analysis and disease diagnosis in pathology and cytology, BX3 features true color LED illumination technology and built-in Light Intensity Manager (LIM). Latter improves user workflow and consistency by automatically modulating light intensity when working with different magnifications. Histological and cytological stains appear exactly same under true color LED as they do under daylight filtered halogen.

Olympus BX3 Systems with True Colour LED Illumination and Light Intensity Manager for Comfortable and Efficient Clinical Microscopy

Don't fight to get the light right

Hamburg - Olympus provides its versatile, powerful BX3 clinical microscope systems for analysis and disease diagnosis in pathology and cytology. The systems take advantage of Olympus's new true colour LED illumination technology and built in Light Intensity Manager (LIM) to create images with accurately rendered colours. Histological and cytological stains appear exactly the same under the true colour LED as they do under daylight filtered halogen, facilitating a seamless transition for labs adopting the new, more efficient LED technology. True colour LEDs offer longer lifetimes, constant colour temperature at all voltages and reduced power consumption when compared to traditional halogen bulbs. In addition, the LIM improves user workflow and maximises consistency by automatically modulating light intensity when working with different magnifications. Such advantages make the BX3 systems with true colour LED illumination the logical choice for comfortable and efficient clinical microscopy.

Insightful analysis in pathology and cytology hinges upon the years of experience provided by histological experts, developed using traditional halogen bulbs in combination with daylight filters. LEDs provide clear energy saving benefits but until now have not generated the level of colour reproduction obtained using halogen approaches. The Olympus true colour LED approach resolves this dilemma by utilising the most advanced mixed-matrix brightfield LED technology currently available to provide a colour rendering index very similar to that of halogen illumination. Stains such as Haematoxylin & Eosin and Papanicolaou look the same when using the Olympus LED as when using halogen light sources, while similar colours can be easily differentiated. These factors maximise the accuracy and reliability of diagnosis using the Olympus true colour LED illuminator.

With a large number of clinical samples to screen, the optimisation of user workflow can significantly improve the efficiency of pathological analysis. For this reason, the Olympus true colour illumination system with LIM automatically modulates light intensity when changing objective lenses. This means that consistent illumination is maintained without the need for manual adjustment, saving a significant amount of time, while simplifying and improving the screening process. Automation is achieved using sensors mounted in the nosepiece that detect the objective lens in use and manipulate the LED intensity according to user defined preferences.

The flexible Olympus BX3 clinical microscopy systems with true colour LED illumination and LIM have been specifically developed to meet the needs of clinical microscopy, ensuring reliable diagnosis while maximising workflow efficiency.
