Marketed by Olympus during the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Olympus BH-2 Microscope is a piece of equipment that remains popular even today. The goal of the BH2 was superior optics and customizability, and it soon became very well known for both.
Standard equipment on this microscope included 10x widefield high eyepoint eyepieces having a field number of 20, precentered halogen lamps, aspherical collector lenses, and fully enclosed light paths designed to exclude dirt and dust. Auxiliary components for the microscope included photoeyepieces, an automatic exposure photomicrography system, and a wide range of objectives covering the entire range of correction and magnification. In addition, both mechanical and circular stages were offered as were binocular and trinocular observation tubes. Contrast enhancing equipment included phase contrast, differential interference contrast, darkfield, fluorescence, and polarized light.
Although it does lack some of the bells and whistles of newer models, the Olympus BH2 microscope is a reliable classic that is still used in many labs throughout the world.
