Research Stereo Microscope
Nikon’s SMZ25 stereomicroscope combines macro and micro imaging in one instrument for convenient viewing and manipulation of single cells to whole organisms. Using Nikon’s Perfect Zoom System optical technology, the SMZ25 achieves the world’s first 25:1 zoom and high NA for superior resolution never before seen with a stereomicroscope.
Using these innovative optics and a fly-eye lens, crystal clear fluorescent images with improved S/N ratios are possible, even in low-excitation light applications such as cell division. Additionally, even at low magnifications, the SMZ25 has a 35mm F.O.V, allowing users to capture an entire 35mm dish with uniform brightness.
“Perfect Zoom System” Offers New Levels of Imaging Power and Versatility
A breakthrough in stereomicroscope design, the SMZ25’s Perfect Zoom System dynamically changes the distance between the two optical axes as the zoom factor varies. This change in optical axis distance enables maximization of light entry into the optical system at every magnification. The result is a large zoom range, high resolution in both eye-paths, and minimal aberrations over the entire zoom range.
World’s Largest Zoom Range Enables High Resolution Macro to Micro Imaging
Nikon’s exclusive Perfect Zoom System provides the world’s first zoom ratio of 25:1 (zoom range: 0.63x – 15.75x*). Even with a 1x objective lens, the SMZ25 captures the entire 35mm dish and simultaneously delivers microscopic details.
Auto Link Zoom (ALZ) Provides Seamless Viewing at Different Magnifications
The SMZ25’s exclusive Auto Link Zoom (ALZ) automatically adjusts the zoom factor to maintain the same field of view when switching objective lenses.
This function enables seamless switching between whole organism imaging at low magnifications and detailed imaging at high magnifications.
