(LED illumination model)
The MA100N is a compact inverted microscope designated for bright field and simple polarizing observations. Responding to the requests from manufacturing and QA/QC sections in a variety of industries, Nikon developed this simple but durable model which enables high contrast image observation and capture. Further, the high intensity LED illumination reduces the need for frequent lamp replacement.

Benefits & features


Employment of high-intensity LED illumination (Eco-illumination)

nikon metrology industrial microscopes inverted MA100N illuminationCompared to conventional halogen illumination, these high intensity LED sources need only about one third of consuming electricity and last approximately 30 times longer. The MA100N ensures stable sample observation with uniform color temperature even in different light intensity.

Compact body

Redesign to 11% smaller than the conventional models

Stable control even with heavy samples - A newly developed stage boasting superior durability

nikon metrology industrial microscopes inverted MA100N stageNikon developed the new MA-SR-N Rectangular Stage especially for the MA100N. The three-plate structure gives the microscope superior control and durability for observation of heavy samples, such as a grinder resin mounted samples.

Aperture Diaphragm

Included as standard feature
