Advanced polarized light microscopy under both diascopic and episcopic illumination

Nikon’s Eclipse polarizing microscopes are renowned for their ability to produce brighter, clearer, and higher contrast images. The LV100 POL, available in diascopic and episcopic microscope illumination types, continues this tradition and offers a completely reengineered base for even easier operation. It also features an exclusive high-intensity halogen light source, which delivers brighter images, lower power consumption and less heat generation, thereby reducing the chance of heat-induced focus drift.
