"This microscope is relatively easy to use, especially if you aren't familiar with the scope. The X-Y slide mechanism is smooth and allows for easy navigation of the sample under the objectives. Image resolution is great but could be improved with better lighting."

Application Area:Embryo visualization
"This microscope is beneficial for visualization of embryos with a variety of treatments. Specifically, it is essential for our observation of the progression of development and differentiation of cilia during embryonic development. Our lab has found the TS100: Nikon to be an essential aspect to our lab."
Ideal for applications such as tissue culture, plaque measurement and blood typing, the new microscopes will be welcome additions to any life sciences laboratory. Used in combination with Narishige manipulators, also available from Nikon, these microscopes can be used for a range of micromanipulation techniques necessary for cyto engineering, developmental and genetic engineering, electro physiology, pharmacology and neurochemistry.
We are pleased to introduce new Eclipse TS100/TS100F main body with a more sophisticated stage.
The new stage can accept two types of acrylic rings, which come with the main body of TS100/TS100-F as standard accessories. With these rings, you can place a specimen more stably on the stage eliminating the risk that the specimen drops from the hole of the stage by mistake. Also, since both of stage rings are transparent, they enable you to check which objective lens is being used easily. Moreover, when the ring with the semicircular hole is chosen, it facilitates observation of the specimen in a chamber since it prevents the objective lens from striking the ring during magnification changes. As an option, a glass stage is also available, which minimizes the possibility of thermal deformation.
