Teach yourself microscope operation with the Online Guide
By simply scanning a QR code, students can quickly access the Online Guide on their smartphones to independently learn how to operate the microscope. The Online Guide can also be useful in preparing students before using the microscope and to reinforce concepts after using the microscope. To access the Online Guide directly, click here.
Sharing Discoveries and Experiences of the Microscopic World
The Digital Sight 1000 optional microscope camera is simple to operate and ideal for use with the Eclipse Ei. Not only can users record images and videos of specimens, but they can also simultaneously observe images with others via a monitor or network.
Perfect for online education
By connecting the Digital Sight 1000 camera to a tablet PC equipped with NIS-Elements L imaging software, images of specimens on the Eclipse Ei can be easily shared in real time with other PCs and smart devices. This system is a powerful tool for virtual teaching using web conferencing services.
Intuitive design that expands learning possibilities
Both ease of understanding and operability, which respectively enable intuitive and stress-free operation, are in demand. Our unique design expertise has been applied to every aspect of the microscope. The accompanying Online Guide empowers students to learn how to operate the microscope independently, revolutionizing the conventional class workflow and saving time for practical training.
Simple, Intuitive Interface
The body of the Eclipse Ei is designed to provide smooth and seamless operation which facilitates quick observation. Simple and intuitive markings on the Eclipse Ei, from illustrations to color-coding, enable students to quickly understand how to operate the various aspects of the microscope.
30% lighter for stress-free setup*
The Eclipse Ei features a compact, light-weight body that saves space and is easy to handle, as well as a robust design that is built to last. It is easy to carry and store, reducing the stress of setting it up and storing it.
* Compared to previous halogen lamp models
Nikon’s optical technology captures specimen details with stunning clarity and true colors
Nikon has been developing and refining optical technology since its founding in 1917. The Eclipse Ei features Nikon’s high quality optics resulting from over 100 years of optical expertise.
High definition, large FOV optical system
The dedicated CFI BE2 Plan Achromat series objective and the 10X eyepiece achieve a large field of view of 20*, enabling students to find their target specimen or structure more quickly. Infinity-corrected objectives with excellent image flatness and chromatic aberration correction provide high-contrast images that accurately capture the color and shape of specimens.
* 120% or more than that of previous models.
High-magnification objectives with superior image clarity
The bright, high-resolution 100X objective* exhibits superior imaging performance through oil immersion, clearly capturing fine structures. The 60X objective* does not require oil immersion for high magnification observation.
Uniform brightness right up to the periphery of the field of view
The illumination system is equipped with a fly-eye lens to achieve uniform brightness across the entire field of view. Low heat generating, long-life LEDs are utilized as the light source.
The user can select either a binocular set or a trinocular set. The trinocular set comprises a camera port with a built-in 0.55X zoom lens. Both sets feature two-stage eyepoint height adjustment.
Digital Sight 1000 microscope camera (optional)
A color camera equipped with a 2-megapixel CMOS image sensor that can acquire images of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. Simply connecting it to a monitor* and a mouse enables you to capture images without the need for a PC. In addition to still images, it also enables acquisition of movies and simple measurements such as length and angle on a monitor. By connecting the camera to a PC, you can share specimen images being observed with the microscope with other PCs and smart devices. This makes the Digital Sight 1000 perfect not only for recording images, but also for online education and discussions.
