Here is an Olympus IX81 Inverted Fluorescence Motorized DIC Polarization Phase Contrast Microscope Pred IX83
Setup for Brightfield with Phase Contrast, DIC, Polarization and Fluorescence Reflective studies.
This microscope is optimized for observation of biological studies on prepared slides and petri dishes that would require multiple contrast options.
The IX-SFR stage has a total travel range of 50mm x 50mm. It features a removable insert and 2 slide clips.
The EXFO Xcite120 features a 120w Metal Halide bulb allowing up to 2000hrs before replacement.
The total magnification range of this microscope is 40-300x
This Olympus IX81 Inverted Fluorescence Motorized DIC Polarization Phase Contrast Microscope is in good working order with all aspects tested to be working fully.
All optics of this microscope have been cleaned professionally under a class 10,000 clean room hood.
Please see the exact video and photos below.

During testing this Olympus IX81 Inverted Fluorescence Motorized DIC Polarization Phase Contrast Microscope was found to have no issues.
A clear image was produced through the eyepieces as well as through the camera port.
All of the mechanical and Motorized components moved freely and the test sample was able to be focused without excessive effort.

This Olympus IX81 Inverted Fluorescence Motorized DIC Polarization Phase Contrast Microscope is currently set up for Brightfield transmitted with Phase Contrast and DIC, Polarization and Reflective Fluorescence studies.
The AmScope MU1003 digital color camera is capable of taking detailed digital images.
The system includes a Dell Latitude i5 laptop running the AmScope software for live feed and still images, MicroManager and Olympus BSW software for virtual control.
The first video starts with zoom out to get a view of the full view of the Olympus IX81 Inverted Fluorescence Motorized DIC Polarization Phase Contrast Microscope.
Then we take a closer look at the microscope controller/power supply and laptop.
Following that, we take a closer look at the Olympus IX81 Inverted Fluorescence Motorized DIC Polarization Phase Contrast Microscope and show all fully functional mechanical features.
In the second video we dive deeper and take a look at the controller that controls the Olympus IX81 Inverted Fluorescence Motorized DIC Polarization Phase Contrast Microscope.
We also demonstrate the ability for virtual control in MicroManager while showing the effect all the changes have on the produced image by viewing the live feed from the AmScope camera.
Once we go through all Phase Contrast, DIC, and Brightfield, we finish by showing fluorescence microscopy.

Here we are showing you our standard packing process
1. All items are different, but they all follow the same principle when packaging.
2. Start with a well-constructed crate
A well-constructed crate would consist of 1/2” to 5/8” Plywood with framing. We generally purchase our crates from a third party who specializes in custom crates.
3. You always want the Instrument to not be directly on the wood deck of the crate. This is done by placing it on foam, inside of the crate. We use 2” 1.7 lb. density foam which works great. It provides cushioning and enough firmness to support the Instrument.
4. The next step is to make sure there is nothing on the deck of the Instrument and the Head/ Arm is secured. In some cases there will be multiple arms to secure but for this example there is only one. The reason for this is so there is no free movement during transit which could cause serious damage to the Instrument.
5. The next step is to make sure your Instrument is covered in either a pallet bag or shrink wrap so no dust or foreign object will get into the crate.
6. The next step is to secure the instrument inside the crate by bracing. We use a method of 2x4’s which have 1” foam shrink wrapped to them so no piece of wood touches the actual instrument.
7. Final step is to photograph everything inside the crate and then seal it with screws.
