Nikon introduces Research Stereo Microscopes SMZ25/SMZ18 with largest zoom range
Nikon today announced the introduction of newest Research Stereo Microscope SMZ25/SMZ18, featuring the largest zoom range, extremely high resolution and exceptionally bright Epi-fluorescence. The Nikon Research Stereo Microscope SMZ25/SMZ18 is ideally suited for both bioscience and medical fields as well as industrial fields. The extremely large zoom range and high resolution allow users to image the sample from its entirety down to its microscopic details. The new remote controller with focusing knob enables the researcher to change focus, zoom, and intensity of the diascopic LED light with ease, and can also be used to capture images.The new Nikon stereo microscopes incorporate a newly developed zoom system (Perfect Zoom System).
The Perfect Zoom System is a breakthrough in stereo microscope design, enabling both an incredible zoom range of 25:1 (0.63-15.17x) and a high numerical aperture of 0.156 (for SMZ25, 1x Objective, at the highest zoom), which allow researchers to image both the entire sample as well as its microscopic details using just a single instrument. The SMZ25 boasts a 35mm field of view at the lowest magnification of 0.63x (using 1x objective, 10 x eyepieces), enabling users to image the entire 35mm dish. At the high magnification range, Nikon’s newly developed high performance objective lenses allow imaging of microscopic structures once considered too small to visualize on a stereo microscope.
