Product Information

Product name Nikon Stereoscopic Microscope SMZ745T
Availability From July 30, 2009

Key Features

1. Superb optical performance and the highest zoom magnification in its class

By optimizing the design of the Greenough optical system, Nikon has realized an impressive 7.5x zoom, the highest in its class. The total magnification range is 3.35x to 300x*. The adoption of the new total reflection prism has resulted in bright, high-contrast images.

  • *When auxiliary objective lens and eyepiece lens are combined.

2. Designed for digital imaging

The zoom body is equipped with a camera port (trinocular type) and a built-in 0.55x C-mount adapter. This permits direct mounting of any Nikon DS Series Digital Camera and simplifies the process of digital imaging, image capture and monitor observations.

3. Ergonomics

The zooming knob is equipped with a click stop for each magnification. At 115 mm, the working distance is very long, providing enough room for fabrication and manipulation of the sample.

4. Designed for various applications and environments

ESD protection is standard to prevent samples from being damaged by electrostatic discharge. Additionally, the anti-mold design in the interior of the zoom body allows the microscope to be used in environments where temperature and humidity are high. Optional illumination accessories are available for various applications and tasks.
