Clinical and laboratory microscope featuring LED illumination, providing stress-free operation for routine use.
To meet the demands of clinical laboratory specialists and researchers, Nikon has reviewed all aspects of microscope usability to develop the Eclipse Ci series of microscopes, which combine superior functionality with operational ease. The Ci is designed to ensure nature posture during viewing of images, sample changing and image capture. Bright, eco-friendly LED illumination reduces the need for frequent lamp replacement*. A variety of accessories are available that support various imaging techniques.
- Ultra-Bright LED Illumination:
The Eclipse Ci-EandCi-L models feature a power-saving, long-life, high-intensity LED illumination system that is three times brighter than previous Nikon systems.
- Image Capture Button:
In response to user demand for the easy image capture, the Eclipse Ci series has a built-in dedicated capture button on the microscope base. An optional digital imaging system supports simple camera settings and operation including capturing, measuring and image sharing.
- All-new Camera Control Unit:
The new Digital Sight DS-L3 is a stand-alone controller with a large-size touch panel, which allows simple setting and operation of a Digital Sight camera without a computer. The camera control is possible with mouse operation or touch panel operation by finger touch or stylus pen.
Configurations of the PC-use control unit DS-U3 and the imaging software NIS-Elements are also available.
- Enhanced Ergonomic Features:
- Ergonomic Binocular Tube.
Eyepiece angle and extension are adjustable to ensure a comfortable observation position. A camera can be mounted via the DSC port.
- Eyelevel Riser.
Eyepoint height can be adjusted to suit your natural posture and increases flexibility for users of different heights.
- Lower Stage Positioning.
A nosepiece spacer lowers the stage facilitating specimen exchange.
- Stage Handle with Height Adjustment.
Stage movement has never been this smooth and comfortable.
- Ergonomic Binocular Tube.
- Versatile Observation Techniques:
The high-intensity LED illumination and wide range of accessories enable phase contrast, darkfield and simple polarizing microscopy.6. Advanced Collaboration and Image Sharing Fucntions:
When mounting a Digital Sight series digital camera and the camera control unit DS-L3 to theEclipse Ci, image sharing, consultation, and distance learning between multiple PCs is easy. This combination allows live streaming of images on the network through firmware, so the capability of the network is not compromised by software. The split-screen capability for real-time comparison of low to high magnification images is an added convenience for remote consultation. In essence, this unique network addressable system is the most powerful tool for consulting in or between hospitals, presentations and conferences during academic meetings, in class lectures and distance education.
- Motorized Operation (Ci-E):
The Eclipse Ci-Eis Nikon’sfirst motorized microscope designed specifically for the clinical laboratory.
Automated features include:
By programming specific buttons to correspond to specific objective lenses, magnification can be easily changed with a one-touch button.
- Auto Light Intensity Reproduction:
The user-defined light intensity for each objective lens is automatically memorized and replicated when the objective is used again. This eliminates the need for manual re-adjustment of light intensity.
- Nosepiece Rotation Buttons:
The nosepiece rotation buttons allows two magnifications to be stored– with one press of a button the user can easily alternate between two objective lenses. This is useful when frequent change of magnifications is necessary, for example between 10x and 40x objectives.
- Motorized Swing-Out Condenser:
Automatically swing-out and swing-in the top-lens element according to the objective lens that is selected.
- Motorized NosepieceCeramic Stage:
The stage is coated with an abrasion and chemical resistant ceramic coating, allowing long-term frequent specimen changes without damaging the stage surface.
