Question about Olympus Mic-D Microscope

1 Answer

Hi, We are having a problem with our multi-head teaching microscope. It is not possible to get the cells in focus, even after trying the kohlers illumination. It is an Olympus microscope. The same slide preparations are fine when using other microscopes. Looking forward to any suggestions. Thank you. Kind regards, Annette

It is most likely that the lenses are dirty.

    The lenses can be cleaned. To get them as good as they were when they were new is no easy task. There are service technicians trained in this and have alot of experience. Special lens cleaning fluids and techniques are employed in the process. Purchase Lens Clens (available on the internet). Using cotton swabs apply only a small amounto of the cleaner to the tip. work in a circular motion and then switch to the other end and very very lightly dry it. A professional will even use a magnifying loop to closely examine the lens and will continue this process until the lens sparkles again. It is rather tedious.

What is the other types of microscope ? how do they differ from a compound microscope ?


Compound Microscope
  • Compound microscopes can be found in most biology and science classrooms. They are electrically operated and use light to enhance the image of a cell. They will have multiple lenses for viewing.
Dissecting Microscope
  • Dissecting microscopes are also known as stereo microscopes. They have low magnification and are also light powered. These microscopes can view objects larger than what a compound microscope is able to handle, in three dimensions.
SEM
  • A Scanning Electron Microscope uses electrons instead of light to create an image. These microscopes produce three-dimensional images with high resolution and magnification. They also have a larger depth of focus.
TEM
  • Transmission Electron Microscopes use electrons instead of light to create an image. The material prepared must be very thin. The beams of electrons that pass through it give the viewer high magnification and resolution. These give two-dimensional images.

My microscope won't focus, i tried everything...i don't know what is wrong with it...it's brand new.. it worked a couple times but now it just stopped.. i dont know what brand it is...all it says is...


If your stage is still in its correct orientation then make sure your objective lenses are screwed in tight as well as the eye piece being secured correctly. Try using different objectives (don't go too high or you may damage your lenses if you ram it into your specimen) and using the fine and course focus. If the you still cant focus using different objectives it's quite possible that your mirrors or lenses inside the microscope have been knocked loose. I would then recommend only having it repaired by a certified microscope technician. If it is still under warranty take it back to the store of purchase or send it back to the manufacturer.

Stage slowly falls causing unfocus


Try holding the Right knob so it does not move, whilst firmly moving the Left knob towards you (clockwise), this is the adjusting method used on Zeiss Jena 1960's High End microscopes, e.g Eduaval & Ergaval.

There are 4 major brands (Zeiss, Nikon, Leica, and Olympus) that sell to universities etc but these are more expensive than some other manufacturers that are less well known but with high quality standards (Motic, Meiji). A well designed site with pricing information is microscopeworld.com. The owners are knowledgeable and helpful. Always look at the scope with your samples or request an evaluation period on the PO.
