Nikon SMZ25 & SMZ18 Stereo Microscopes

Breakthrough Stereo Microscope Optics with World’s Largest Zoom Range – enables high resolution macro to micro imaging

Traditional boundaries between scientific fields such as molecular biology and developmental biology are rapidly disappearing as researchers seek to connect findings at the molecular level to those derived from cellular, tissue, and organismal studies. Fields including molecular biology, cell biology, neurobiology, embryology, developmental biology and systems biology have increasing needs for imaging systems that span spatial scales from single cells to whole organisms.

With these demands in mind, Nikon has developed a stereo microscope that features a large zoom ratio of 25:1, high resolution and exceptional fluorescence transmission capability.

World’s Largest Zoom Range – enables high resolution macro to micro imaging, image an entire 35mm dish whilst simultaneously visualising microscopic details

Perfect Zoom System – dynamically adjusts the optical axis distance to enable large zoom range, high resolution and minimal aberrations

Superior resolution – SHR Plan Apo objective lenses deliver brilliant images with true-to-life colours

Auto Link Zoom – adjusts zoom factor to maintain field of view when switching lenses, enabling seamless switching between high and low magnification

Fly-eye lens – ensures bright and uniform Epi-Fluoresence illumination

Improved Signal to Noise ratio – enables capture of low fluorescent signals and light sensitive events
