Nikon announces two new innovative series of microscopes for biological research

Nikon today announced two new innovative series of microscopes: the ECLIPSE Ni series for biological research with advanced system expandability,superior optical performance and ease of use ; and the ECLIPSE Ci series biological laboratory microscope designed to deliver comfort and “durability. In the current Eclipse series, Nikon adopted the “fly-eye” lens array built into the transmitted light illumination optics to ensure uniform brightness to both eyepieces and digital detectors. To meet the need for more versatile experiment techniques, more motorized options, such as filter wheel, high-speed shutter and photoactivation unit, are available for the Ni series.The Ni-U is a manual main body, which can be partly motorized for users who need minimum motorization.

Nikon ECLIPSE Ci series with the innovative Nikon fly-eye lens array combined with power-saving, long-life, high-intensity LED illumination makes illumination brighter, more uniform and eco-friendly. Nikon ECLIPSE Ci series is Nikon’s first motorized model for laboratory use. Switching objective lenses is motorized with the condenser top lens motorized and synchronized to the objective selected, and brightness is adjusted to the level set by each objective lens to suit the users’ preference. The Ci has various adjustment mechanisms to match all users.Both the models will be available from September 1, 2011.
