Euromex Oxion

£1,015.00 Ex. VAT

The Oxion series has been designed with all kind of Life Sciences applications and great durability in mind. This resulted in a modern, robust and high-level microscope for everyday use, equipped with excellent optical and mechanical components. Specific attention to production methods resulted also in an excellent price/performance ratio.

The microscopes of the Oxion series are dedicated to professionals in Life Sciences applications, laboratories of universities or research centres, but also for routine medical applications and veterinary medicine. Besides the brightfield contrast method, configurations with phase contrast, darkfield contrast, simple polarization or fluorescence illumination can be used.

Thanks to the high-resolution optics and state-of-the-art components, these microscopes can be widely used from routine to fundamental research applications.

For biological and medical applications fluorescence microscopes are used to observe certain parts of living cells and tissues with help of fluorophores. One or more fluorophores are added to the parts of the specimen to be observed. When the fluorophores are exposed to so-called excitation light, the excitation energy is absorbed by the fluorophore that start emitting so-called emission light that can be observed by the microscope. One can distinguish tumour cells from other cells, follow biological processes or prove the presence or absence of antibodies, etc.

The Oxion microscopes for fluorescence are equipped with an epi-illumination with a 100 W mercury vapor lamp. The fluorescence attachment have a rail for maximum 4 filter cubes. The FluoLed model is equipped with a 455 nm LED and one filter cube, especially developed for efficient and fast detection of tuberculosis by the Auramine-O fluorochrome. Other FluoLED wavelengths are also available.
