By combining ergonomic instrumentation with the power of Galilean optics, the Olympus SZX series enables users to comfortably perform advanced stereomicroscopy tasks for extended periods of time. New ergonomic accessories bring the microscope closer to the user and provide flexibility for individuals of different heights. Providing a comfortable position for each user during microscope work reduces stress during observation and increases efficiency. New levels of comfort are achieved without any reduction in image quality. The wide zoom range and increased focal depth optimize image quality and user productivity.
