Enjoy the combined advantages of a stereoscopic microscope, with a wide field of view and a long working distance, and a compound microscope, boasting high-resolution images. The multi-purpose zoom microscope MULTIZOOM AZ100 is Nikon's groundbreaking microscope solution.
- The mono-zoom optical system enables on-axis observation and documentation.
- The large magnification range is from 5x to 500x.*
- High-resolution, high-contrast images can be viewed in the macro region.
- Various illumination techniques are possible, including DIC observation.
- *500x includes 1.25x device magnification of coaxial illuminator
Macro observation by on-axis viewing
True on-axis observation and image capture are possible in the macro region due to the AZ100's elimination of the traditional stereoscope's angular view of the specimen.

Mono zoom mechanism
Stereoscopic microscopes always capture images in a diagonal direction due to the structure of the device. The AZ100, however, captures high-resolution, high-contrast images with on-axis viewing.
A wide range of magnifications
By combining built-in 8x zoom optics, which provide from 1x to 8x magnification, with a three-position objective nosepiece, the AZ100 enables observation at the highest magnification ratio of any such device in the world. The objective lens lineup consists of 0.5x, 1x, 2x, 4x, and 5x lenses. When combined with AZ-W 10x eyepiece lenses, the AZ100 covers everything from low, through medium to high magnification. In the range of 5x to 500x (the latter includes the 1.25x device magnification of the coaxial illuminator). The zoom knob incorporates an engageable click-stop mechanism for measuring and reproducing magnification settings.
Comes standard with an aperture stop
The AZ100 ships complete with an aperture stop that is effective not only for visual observation, but also for the capture of digital images. This aperture stop allows you to freely change contrast and field depth based on your specimen requirements.

Various microscopy methods
In addition to brightfield observation, a wide range of observation methods is possible, including epi-fluorescence, Nomarski DIC, simple polarizing and oblique illumination. AZ100 enables simultaneous mounting of epi-fluorescence and diascopic DIC attachments, allowing effortless switching between observation modes.
