Product Information

Product Name Nikon Stereoscopic Microscope SMZ745
Availability From February 1, 2011

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 the auxiliary objective lens and eyepiece lens are combined.

2. Ergonomics

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

3. Designed for various applications and environments

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