We have an Olympus SZX10 microscope for selection of crystalline samples. The trinocular tubes of SZX10 provide comfortable and efficient observation with optimized convergence angle that reduces the eye and neck strain. The long life LED illumination of SZX10 faithfully reproduces colors for optimal imaging. CX43P equipped with hot stage and DP74 high resolution compared for capturing live image and record.

We also have a Olympus CS43P high resolving microscope equipped with a hot stage and computer interface. With hot stage microscopy, phase changes can be studied upto 600 °C.
