Ideal as an educational microscope or for routine laboratory use for biology, geology and industry, the Eclipse E200 POL incorporates Nikon’s acclaimed CFI60 infinity optical system to provide a high quality, compact and easy-to-use polarizing microscope at a modest price. Because the E200 POL’s design is based on the Eclipse E200 biological microscope, it shares the same objectives and uses many of the accessories created for higher-grade Eclipse series microscopes, enabling more advanced polarizing microscopy.
Refocusing Stage. The unique Refocusing Stage makes specimen handling quicker and easier. The stage can be instantly dropped, just by pushing it down, to exchange specimens or oil the slide. It returns to the original position as soon as the hand is removed.
Comfortable Viewing.The Siedentopf-type eyepiece tube — P-TB binocular or P-TT trinocular — is inclined at 30° to ensure a natural posture for more comfortable viewing.
Easy Lamp Replacement. The microscope comes with a unique top-access 6V/20W halogen illuminator. Simply slide open the lens-unit cover to replace the lamp.
