Fully motorized and advanced research upright microscope offering automated acquisition capabilities of multi-dimensional images
ECLIPSE Ni-E, Nikon's top-of-the-line motorized upright microscope, was developed to meet the increasing demands for sophistication and automation of research. ECLIPSE Ni-E boasts flexible system expandability and supports a broad range of advanced research applications.
With Nikon's proprietary stratum structure, exchangeable focusing mechanisms, from focusing stage to focusing nosepiece, a diverse array of motorized accessories, and automatically changing observation conditions, Ni-E has expanded application possibilities to provide the perfect solution for all advanced bioscience and medical research.
Stratum structure improves system expandability
Nikon's proprietary stratum structure enables simultaneous mounting of two optical paths on one microscope to support various applications.
This structure allows double layer mounting of an epi-fluorescence illuminator and a barrier filter wheel, or a photoactivation unit and a back port unit, developed for the first time for upright microscopes.
High-speed motorized accessories
The wide array of motorized accessories clearly differentiated by function, including motorized excitation filter wheel and motorized barrier filter wheel, can be custom-combined depending on application.
Two exchangeable focusing mechanisms
Automatic adjustment with objective changeover
Condenser, aperture, field diaphragm and ND filter are automatically set to optimal positions according to the objective magnification in use. In addition, XYZ stage travel distance per handle rotation and parfocal distance deviation correction are automatically adjusted. Microscope settings can also be manually adjusted.
Change of observation conditions
High-precision motorized focusing
Supreme optical performance
Nano Crystal Coat technology
Employed for the first time in microscope objectives, this anti-reflective coating consists of nanometer-size particles. It is based on semiconductor manufacturing technology and is also used for Nikon camera lenses. The coating's coarse structure and the arrangement of particles in a spongy construction with uniform spaces between them achieve extremely low refractive indices.
CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda series objective lens
Water dipping objective lenses
Uniformly bright illumination
Fluorescence noise elimination
Ultimate ease of operation
Simple digital imaging
3D ergo design
Controllers supporting intuitive operations
The DS-L4 camera control unit is used as a tablet-style touch-operation controller for Ni-E motorized functions and peripheral devices as well as DS cameras, eliminating the space requirements of a desktop PC. An ergo controller with a similar operational feel as that of an actual microscope is also available.
