Nikon Stereo Microscope SMZ1270/ 1270i

New zoom stereo microscope – Incredible sharpness throughout a wide magnification range.

Nikon Stereo Microscope SMZ1270/1270i offers the highest-in-class zoom ratio of 12.7x (0.63 – 8x).

It offers wide viewfield at low magnification, enabling easy confirmation of observation targets, while its cutting-edge optics provide bright and sharp images through the entire viewfield. Nikon Stereo Microscope SMZ1270i is also equipped with intelligent functions that enable automatic detection of magnification data.


Highest-in-class zoom ratio

The SMZ1270/1270i offers the highest-in-class zoom ratio of 12.7x (0.63 – 8x). It offers both low-magnification wide viewfield observation of the whole of a 35 mm petri dish* during screening and high-magnification observation of minute cell structures.

* With 1x objective at the lowest magnification.

High-level chromatic aberration correction

Apochromat optics have been adopted for the lenses in the SMZ1270/1270i zoom body to achieve high-level chromatic aberration correction. They provide sharp images without blur or color fringe.

Newly developed objectives

The newly developed WF series objectives offer uniformly bright images even at low magnification and wide viewfield observation when used with the SMZ1270/1270i. In addition, a 0.75x objective is now available, expanding the lineup of low magnification objectives.
