Breakthrough new stereomicroscope optics deliver the world’s highest zoom ratio of 25:1, higher resolution and brighter fluorescence images.
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
World’s Largest Zoom RangeE nables 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.
Brighter and Higher Contrast Epi-fluorescence Imaging
Nikon’s newly developed optical system offers a drastic improvement in S/N ratio even at high magnifications.
The improved S/N ratio makes it possible to capture cell division, which is difficult using conventional stereomicroscopes, and samples with low excitation light
Advanced Motorization and Digital Imaging Capabilities
On-axis Imaging for Digital Images
Easily switch between stereo position (stereoscopic view) and mono position (on-axis view) when using the P2-RNI2 Intelligent Nosepiece by simply sliding the objective lens. Digital images with uncompromised clarity can be captured using the mono position.
The all-new controller provides easy access to zoom and focus controls and is designed for both right- and left-hand use. The remote controller contains an LCD monitor with an adjustable backlight which provides information regarding the zoom factor, objective lens, filter cube, and LED DIA brightness at a glance. The backlight on the LCD monitor can also be turned off to eliminate interference with low-light imaging applications. In addition to the remote controller, the microscope can also be operated through a PC.
NIS-Elements Imaging Software
Nikon’s flagship, cross-platform imaging, software can now be used with Nikon’s newest stereomicroscope systems. NIS-Elements enables a wide range of advanced digital imaging capabilities, easily from a PC.
Digital Sight DS-L3 Digital Camera System
The DS-L3 is an easy-to-use high-definition, large touch-panel monitor that can be used to quickly capture images without a PC.
