NeoScope II Benchtop SEM

60,000X at your fingertips

The perfect complement to light microscopy, the NeoScope II benchtop SEM gives you the power of scanning electron microscopy in a convenient, compact package.


View samples and capture images at a magnification range of 10X to 60,000X without the need to adjust or change lenses. Improve your analysis and imaging with higher resolution, greater depth of field, longer working distances and better surface sensitivity. Add the optional EDS system to gain elemental analysis.

Improved Ergonomics, Advanced Digital Imaging

With an ergonomic eyepiece tube, the observation angle can be adjusted from 0-30 degrees, allowing for comfortable observation postures even if combined with intermediate modules such as illuminators or teaching heads.

In combination with the DS-L3 Camera Control Unit, NIS-Elements imaging software, and P-RN2 Intelligent Nosepiece, image acquisition is now more efficient, with the objective magnification and zoom ratio information displayed on the monitor.

Optimized Objectives and
Versatile Double Nosepiece

Combining the SMZ1270i with the new WF series objectives offers a wide, uniformly bright viewfield even at low magnifications. 

The versatile double nosepiece allows for seamless observation in a wide range of magnifications. By changing the nosepiece from stereo-position (stereo view) to mono-position (on-axis view), you can easily acquire images suited for measuring and processing.

Best-In-Class Zoom Ratio, High-Quality Images

With a zoom ratio of 12.7x (0.63x-8x), the SMZ1270i covers a greater magnification range than previous models. At the lowest magnification, the field of view reaches 35mm*, allowing observation of a 35mm petri dish.
* when 1x objective and 10x eyepieces are used (excluding Coaxial EPI illumination)

Aquire clear, bright images with reduced chromatic aberrations throughout the extended zoom range through the new Plan Apo WF and ED plan WF objectives.

For over 50 years, McCrone Microscopes & Accessories has remained the industry expert. Let us power up your benchtop to give you remarkable images of protein structures, nano particles and stress fractures.


NeoScope II is fit for every lab.

Expandable with a Wide Range of Accessories

To support a variety of observation methods and applications used for research and inspection, accessories, such as illumination units, stands, and eyepiece tubes, are available. By incorporating a Fly Eye Lens with the Epi-Fluorescence illuminator, uniform brightness over the entire field of view is realized, which helps in observing specimen that needs a wide magnification range. Nikon also offers several digital cameras ideally suited different stereo microscope applications.

Diascopic illumination stands have been renewed. The slim LED base design provides easy access to specimen and easy operation. As with the SMZ25 and SMZ18, the diascopic illumination base features Nikon’s very own oblique illumination, the OCC illuminator. The built-in feature offers high contrast observation for transparent samples such as oocytes used in the IVF application.
