Intelligent yet affordable manual zoom stereomicroscope provides brilliant images and unparalleled uniformity in fluorescence intensity.

Nikon’s SMZ18 research stereomicroscope combines macro and micro imaging in one manual instrument for convenient, affordable viewing and manipulation of single cells to whole organisms. A high-performance fly-eye lens provides crystal-clear fluorescent images, with uniform brightness across the entire field of view. Using enhanced epi-fluorescence technology, the SMZ18 is better able to detect excitation light than conventional fluorescent stereomicroscopes, for improved S/N ratios and bright, high-contrast images, even in the low magnification range. Integrated intelligence allows SMZ18 to save imaging parameters along with the captured image as a convenient data file.
