High-quality images with newly developed bright LED illumination and time-proven CFI optical system.
Features newly developed high-intensity LED illumination, providing uniform brightness in the entire field of view. A halogen illumination model is also available. Nikon's infinity corrected optics, designed especially for the Eclipse E100 microscope, uses state-of-the-art technology to produce outstanding performance. Nikon's CFI* optics achieve flat, sharp images that minimize distortion. Transparent specimens can be observed with phase contrast observation. Featuring a simple and easy-to-use design for beginners, strong rigidity to ensure high accuracy and a long life, and an easy-to-store structure, the Eclipse E100 is the perfect choice for a variety of purposes, including educational and routine laboratory research.

High-intensity LED Eco-illumination
Eco-illumination provides enough brightness for phase contrast observation. With a fly-eye lens in the illuminator, uniform brightness is provided in the entire field of view. Using environmentally friendly long-life LEDs, Eco-illumination boasts a long lifetime of 60,000 hours and reduces the need for frequent lamp replacement. A halogen illumination model is also available.
Plan series objective lenses for flat images
The dedicated Plan series 4x, 10x, 20x, 40x, 60x, and 100x (Oil) objective lenses provide superior image flatness. Chromatic aberration and field curvature are corrected over the entire field of view.
Trinocular eyepiece tube allows image capturing
Either a binocular tube or a trinocular tube (to which a digital camera can be attached) can be selected. Both tubes have an eyepiece lens inclination of 30°, which allows for comfortable viewing. The eyepoint height can be adjusted by up to 34 mm, and the interpupillary distance and diopter can be changed to accommodate a wide range of operators.
Coaxial coarse/fine focus knob
The coaxial coarse/fine focus knob and the stage handle are located equidistant from the operator, so comfortable operation in a natural posture is possible even during a prolonged period of observation. The torque of the coarse focus knob is adjustable.
Phase contrast attachments
With an optional condenser, objectives and sliders dedicated for phase contrast and darkfield observation, even an unstained specimen that is colorless and transparent can be observed with clear contrast.
Condenser with position guide markings
The condenser comes with an aperture diaphragm with position guide markings for each objective magnification to make operations quick and easy.
Smooth rotation quadruple nosepiece
The high-quality revolving nosepiece has a click-stop mechanism. A knurled elastic-covered grip provides easy rotation and eliminates the need to touch the objectives.
Double-plate mechanical stage
A built-in double-plate mechanical stage provides smooth XY dual travel control. The large, flat surface facilitates easy specimen handling.
Easy halogen lamp replacement
The halogen illumination model features a powerful 6V20W halogen lamp that is adjustable up to 6V for convenient illumination control. Replacing the lamp is easy and trouble-free.
The Eclipse E100 is designed to prevent fungus forming on the objectives, eyepieces and tubes even in high-humidity environments.
