Educational Microscope

Features exceptionally bright and uniform LED illumination and Nikon's high-quality optics. Ergonomic and anti-mold design ensures years of comfortable and stable use.

With the Eclipse E200, Nikon has designed a simple and easy-to-use system that reduces fatigue from use over long periods. With a robust structure and anti-mold design, the Eclipse E200 offers high quality and accuracy that can be retained for years even in hot and humid environments.

The Eclipse E200 offers exceptional operability and durability, and high-quality images. It can be used for various purposes, such as educational, clinical laboratory use, and basic research.

The Eclipse E200-F, a model with a field diaphragm with position-guide markings, is also available.

Key Features

High-intensity LED Eco-illumination

Eco-illumination provides enough brightness for both phase contrast observation and simple polarized light observation. With a fly-eye lens in the illumination system, uniform brightness is provided in the entire field of view. LEDs are environmentally friendly, consume less power than halogen lamps, and last approximately 60,000 hours, reducing costs and the need for frequent lamp replacement. The color temperature does not change when magnification is changed. A halogen illumination model is also available.

Crystal-clear image, thanks to CFI60 optics

CFI60 optics combine Nikon's renowned CF optics with infinity optics to produce breathtakingly sharp and clear image hitherto only available with more expensive models, while providing longer working distances and higher NA's.

The E200 provides a wide selection of objectives to choose from, including the CFI E Plan Achromat objectives specifically developed for the E200, in addition to other higher-grade Eclipse series objectives.


Anti-mold design

Mold is a formidable enemy of microscopes. It can begin growing on the interior optical surfaces of the microscope and ruin performance. Using anti-mold paint and an anti-mold agent sealed at critical places inside the microscope, the Eclipse E200 is designed to resist mold growth. In tests, an anti-mold treated unit was able to resist the growth of mold for three consecutive years at an average temperature of 30 ºC (86 ºF) and 80 % humidity.

Available only with models marketed outside EU member countries

Anti-mold paint and sealing agents (areas in red) prevents mold-growth on critical areas of the microscope.


Ergonomic design equals comfortable operation

The focus knob and the stage handle are positioned equidistant from the operator, allowing use without twisting the shoulders.

Because these controls are in a low position, users can rest their arms on the desk while working.

A wider field of view

The E200's eyepieces feature a wider field of view for a microscope of this class and are available in 10x (F.O.V. 20) and 15x (F.O.V. 12) types.

F.O.V. (Conventional Model)

Camera compatibility

A digital camera can be attached when the trinocular eyepiece tube is used*.

* With a 4x objective lens, the image may show uneven illumination depending on the camera used.
