Nikon Metrology Inc.'s latest stereoscopic microscope, the SMZ-745, is an airtight, anti-electrostatic and anti-mould designed microscope that prevents samples from being damaged by electrostatic discharge, as well as contaminants such as dust and water.

This design makes it an excellent option for use in environments where temperature and humidity are high and solid contaminants are prevalent.

The microscope is optimized with the Greenough optical system, allowing it to reach a best-in-class zoom ratio: up to 7.5 times. The magnification ranges from 3.35x to 330x when combined with the auxiliary objective lens and eyepiece. It also has a total reflection prism, which results in bright, high-contrast images. With a working distance up to 115 mm and a trinocular optical head ideal for monitoring and as digital imaging – the entire microscope is ergonomically built to provide a better usage experience, no matter the scientific discipline.

"From the click-stop knob that helps mark a change in magnification to the ability to add auxiliary objective and eyepiece lenses, every facet of this microscope can be customized so that our customers can create the optimal experience for studying their samples,” says Koji Kiribuchi, marketing Manager, Nikon Metrology. "It is this flexibility in our systems that makes us such a valued partner to our customers.”

The microscope can be used in a production environment or the lab and is particularly useful for applications such as PCB assembly, semiconductor fabrication, embryology/IVF, medical device manufacture and quality control, geology, entomology, botany, cell biology, plastics and MEMS, just to name a few.

The SMZ-745 also has a number of additional attributes that assist ease of use. It enjoys a zoom range of 0.67x to 5x, which provides the user with a broad observation range. It also has an eyepiece inclination of 45 degrees, as well as an electrostatic decay time of 1,000 volt to 10 volts, in less than .2 seconds. The microscope is certified as JIS/IEC waterproof grade 1.
