The Olympus Empty Filter Cubes can accept 25mm diameter excitation and emission filters and 25.2 x 35.6mm dichroic filters for customized fluorescence configurations. The #86-832 Filter Cube is compatible with Olympus BX2 (BX61/51/41) and IX2 (IX81/71/51) series microscopes. The #86-833 Filter Cube is compatible with Olympus BX3 (BX63/53/43) and IX3 (IX83/73/53) series microscopes. Pre-Mounted Fluorescence Filter Cube Sets utilizing the #86-833 Filter Cube are available for a variety of standard fluorophores.
Olympus Tube Lenses feature a 180mm focal length. The Olympus Wide Field Tube Lens (#36-401) offers a wide 26.5mm diameter image circle, and can be easily integrated into T-Mount systems with the Olympus Wide Field Tube Lens to T-Mount Holder (#11-149)*. The Olympus Single Port Tube Lens (#86-835) features a smaller 22mm diameter image circle, but is designed to easily integrate with microscope observation tubes for video observation. A C-Mount video microscope can be configured by using the #86-835 tube lens, #89-606 Olympus C-Mount Adapter, and #89-605 Olympus 1X Camera Coupler.
Olympus Low Auto Fluorescence Immersion Oil #86-834 is designed for use with Oil Immersion Objectives to achieve a high numerical aperture. The immersion oil is specially formulated for reducing autofluorescence that is typically associated with oils, making it an ideal choice for Fluorescence Microscopy applications.
*Note: The four socket head cap screws must be removed to mount the #36-401 Olympus Wide Field Tube Lens in the #11-149 Olympus Wide Field Tube Lens to T-Mount Holder. See Technical Information Tab.
