Inverted Research Microscope Eclipse Ts2R

A compact inverted research microscope configurable with a wide variety of observation methods

A new intermediate-sized inverted research microscope designed for a wide variety of applications. Do more than before!
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 microscope has a 35mm F.O.V, allowing users to capture an entire 35mm dish with uniform brightness.

The Eclipse Ts2R is a compact inverted research microscope that is configurable with a wide variety of observation methods. The broad range of observation methods, smaller body and improved ease of use will directly benefit research laboratories and improve workflow.

In addition to conventional contrast methods, the Eclipse Ts2R features versatile observation methods, including Phase Contrast, DIC, Hoffman Modulation Contrast and Emboss Contrast. It is also compatible with a selection of high performance and quality optical accessories to function similarly to the inverted research microscope Eclipse Ti and produce clear, sharp images.

Diascopic Illumination and Diascopic/Epi-fluorescence Illumination Models
Two models are available to meet your needs; a diascopic illumination model, the Eclipse Ts2R, and an epi-fluorescence illumination model, the Eclipse Ts2R-F

Easy to Work With

Control buttons on the new Eclipse Ts2R microscope are intuitively located for a streamlined workflow. The on/off and diascopic/epi-fluorescence switching controls are located on the front panel while buttons pertaining to either diascopic or epi-fluorescence control are zoned to the left and right sides of the microscope body, respectively.

The newly developed rectangular mechanical stage on the Eclipse Ts2R has a long travel stroke, enabling users to observe an entire 96-well plate. You can also set the limits of the XY travel stroke depending on sample and vessel size. The stage height has also been lowered by approximately 30% compared to the standard research microscope*, thereby reducing fatigues during repetitive operation and sample exchange.

Versatile Observation with LED Illuminator

New LED-based diascopic and epi-fluorescence observation.

In addition to conventional contrasting methods such as Phase Contrast, DIC, and Nikon Advanced Modulation Contrast, the Eclipse Ts2R also provides a newly developed Emboss Contrast technique to support imaging through both plastic and glass culture chambers. Thick samples such as cancer cells, oocytes and embryos which are difficult to observe with conventional phase contrast methods, can also be easily observed with Emboss Contrast which provides high-contrast, pseudo-three-dimensional images without the need for costly optical components.



Compact Body Streamlines Your Work

The depth and height of the Eclipse Ts2R microscope body is approximately 10% smaller compared to the standard research microscope.* Both diascopic epi-fluorescence models are designed with space-saving compact bodies and provide improved workflow in the laboratory. The fluorescence model features a built-in fluorescent light source and illuminator to aid in the compact design.
