Boosting Productivity and Reducing Fatigue of Microscopic ObservationNewly Designed Ergonomic Units for SZX Series Stereo Microscopes
January 26, 2016
Olympus Corporation (President: Hiroyuki Sasa) today announced the international launch by its Scientific Solutions Business, of three new units for the SZX series of stereo microscopes, commencing on January 26, 2016. Three new units help boost productivity and reduce the fatigue associated with microscope use by ensuring that users can adopt a natural pose.
Characterized by their ability to provide a three-dimensional image of the specimen, stereo microscopes are widely used in research and development, quality management, and numerous other fields. Olympus supplies the SZX series featuring clear images and comfortable operation, and the SZ series designed for compact size and ease-of-use.
The new units are intended for use with the SZX series of stereo microscopes. Using the SZX2-LTTR Ergonomic Long Tilting Trinocular and SZX2-EEPA Extendable Eyepoint Adjuster, users can adjust the viewing angle and height of the stereo microscope. This allows the user to adopt a natural pose, boosting productivity and reducing the fatigue associated with microscope use. Use of a microscope digital camera is also possible using a camera adapter and the SZX2-LTTRAD Extender for Camera Adapter with the Ergonomic Long Tilting Trinocular.

Ability to adjust viewing angle and height of stereo microscope helps boost productivity and reduce fatigue associated with microscope use
To enable each user to adopt a natural pose, the microscope must be capable of being adjusted to suit their stature. Use of the new units enables the viewing angle and height of the stereo microscope to be adjusted for each user. They provide an adjustment range of 5 º to 45 º for viewing angle and 30 mm to 150 mm for height to suit different users. This helps boost productivity and reduce the fatigue associated with microscope use.
