Nikon Eclipse MA100


The ECLIPSE MA100 is a compact-size inverted microscope. It was developed for brightfield observation and simple polarizing observation. Thanks to its compact, durable design and simple operation in addition to its high-contrast observation and image capture, it is excellent for metallographic and electronic components as well as use at production sites in the materials fields and quality control departments.

The LED illumination type MA100L is also available.

Halogen illuminator

MA100 is equipped with a high-intensity 6V30W halogen lamp that provides images with natural colors by regulating brightness.

Top-of-the-line CFI60-2 objectives
CFI60-2 objectives have evolved from the CFI60, recognized for its high NA and long working distance, and now offer the longest working distance and optimum chromatic aberration correction in a body that is lighter than ever. Up to five objective lenses can be mounted.

Polarizer/ Analyzer
Simple polarization observation with a single-action polarizer/analyzer mechanism
This device makes simple polarizing observation possible, which is effective for samples such as polymer materials. It takes just a single action to engage the polarizer and analyzer in the light path. The polarizer can rotate 360° degrees, allowing users to set a polarization direction suited to the sample being observed.

The dedicated MA-SR Rectangular Stage boasts superior durability and stable control even with heavy samples
MA-SR’s three-plate structure gives the microscope stable control and superior durability and enables observation of heavy samples, including embedded samples that are still mounted on a grinder’s holder.

Aperture Diaphragm
Comes standard with a condenser

The illuminator comes with a condenser that enables users to control image contrast and depth of field of the sample.
