Breadboard and filter wheel assembly by Prior Scientific

Prior

The IX3 breadboard and filter wheel assembly from Prior Scientific (Rockland, MA) is designed for Olympus IX3 inverted microscope systems. Available as a separate part, the HP1719 breadboard allows researchers to mount and insert any number of custom optics into the IX3 light path to create a unique system. Having the filter wheel mounted below the nosepiece allows switching between wavelengths at high speed as well as the ability to see fluorescent images through the eyepieces of the microscope and the camera. The HF108SIX3 filter wheel accommodates up to eight 32-mm-diameter filters. The assembly is compatible with the company's line of ProScan and OptiScan controllers, with drivers available for cellSens and Metamorph software packages.

PRESS RELEASE

Introducing the IX3 Breadboard and Filter Wheel Assembly from Prior Scientific

Rockland, MA. (September 18, 2012) - We are pleased to announce the new IX3 breadboard and filter wheel assembly from Prior Scientific for Olympus IX3 inverted microscope systems. Taking full advantage of the open access to the light path on the Olympus IX3 microscope, the IX3 breadboard and HF108SIX3 filter wheel module can be mounted and removed with ease. The HP1719 IX breadboard and HF108SIX3 filter wheel combination is compatible with the IX3-ZDC module. Available as a separate part, the HP1719breadboard allows researchers to mount and insert any number of custom optics into the IX3 light path to create their own unique system. The combination of the IX breadboard and the modified HF108 filter wheel provide a compact easy to install high speed filter wheel option. Having the filter wheel mounted below the nosepiece allows the user to not only switch between wavelengths at high speed, but also to see the fluorescent images through the eyepieces of the IX3 microscope as well as the camera. The HF108SIX3 filter wheel accommodates up to eight 32 mm diameter filters. The use of 32mm filters completely fills the field of view in the eyepieces and large chip cameras. The assembly is compatible with Prior’s line of ProScan and OptiScan controllers. Drivers are available for cellSens and Metamorph software packages.
