Compact clinical and laboratory microscope with halogen illumination providing stress-free, easy operation
To meet the demands of clinical laboratory specialists and researchers, Nikon has reviewed all aspects of microscope usability to develop the ECLIPSE Ci-S microscope, which balances superior functionality with operational ease. Viewing images, sample changing and capturing images are all conducted with a natural posture. A variety of accessories are available that support various imaging techniques.
User-friendly stage operation
With the addition of a nosepiece spacer, the stage height can be lowered 20 mm from the standard position, facilitating frequent specimen change. The stage handle height can be changed to ensure a comfortable hand position. The stage height can be locked using the refocusing knob, allowing refocusing after specimen changes. The stage is coated with high-durability scratch-resistant ceramic coating.
Enhanced operational ease
One simple click of the image capture button on the microscope base during observation enables the Digital Sight camera to capture the specimen image. Observation technique icons on the DS-L4 camera control unit’s touch panel provide optimal camera settings for each observation method. In addition, ECLIPSE Ci series microscopes can be connected to remote PCs via a DS-L4 to enable remote viewing, online education, and distance collaboration.
The compact epi-fluorescence attachments utilize the dedicated noise terminator mechanism and allow weakly fluorescing specimens to be captured with great clarity and brightness. The both CI-FL epi-fluorescence attachment (4 filter cubes mountable) and D-FL epi-fluorescence attachment (6 filter cubes mountable) allow easy switching of filter cubes. High-optical-performance objective lenses for epi-fluorescence imaging, including the CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda series and the CFI Plan Fluor series, are available.
