MELVILLE, N.Y., Sept. 19, 2011 — Nikon Instruments Inc. has released the Eclipse Ci series upright microscope systems for clinical applications. The ergonomic microscopes can adjust to multiple users, reducing fatigue, increasing comfort during operation, and providing bright, sharp and clear images.

Optimal for multiuser laboratories, the Ci-E, Ci-L and Ci-S instruments are built to withstand frequent use as well as to adjust to the preferences of individual users. The ergonomic features allow the user to sit in a natural, relaxed posture throughout the workday. The advanced ergonomics are further evolved in the Ci-E model, representing the company’s first automated microscope for clinical laboratory use. With simultaneous motorized switching of objective lens, condenser and light intensity, the Ci-E was designed to enable the user to concentrate on the specimen without concern for operation.

The microscopes are eco-friendly. Incorporating eco-illumination, a power-saving, long-life, high-intensity LED optical system, the Ci-E and Ci-L models are three times brighter than the company’s previous systems, and they deliver a lifetime of 60,000 h. They also offer low power consumption and heat generation, and they eliminate color temperature changes that occur with halogen light sources. LED illumination eliminates the infrared emissions associated with halogen light sources, minimizing eyestrain for users. Eco-illumination supports a variety of microscopy techniques including dark-field, simple polarizing, and sensitive color polarizing for gout testing and phase contrast.

The Ci-E model offers automated nosepiece rotation and the switching of objective lenses with the condenser top lens both in and out.

User-defined light intensity for each magnification is automatically reproduced when switching between magnifications, enabling users to view samples at optimum brightness without intensity adjustment. An image capture button on the side of the main body lets users take an image without removing their eyes from the eyepieces, improving efficiency and comfort.

The angle and proximity of the eyepiece tube and the height of the stage handle can be adjusted to reflect each user’s physical size or general observation posture. The improved ergonomic tube and stage height adjustment mechanism allow comfortable viewing positions for various users. Durable, scratch-resistant ceramic coating has been added to the stage to meet the needs of high-volume users. The stage handle remains in a fixed position, allowing hand and body positions to remain constant and in line with the instrument.

The view provided by the proprietary CFI60 optics is enhanced with new patent-pending “fly eye” technology. By combining the collimator lens and fly-eye optics with LED and CFI60 optics, bright, uniform, crystal-clear images can be obtained, even in high magnification. The digital imaging system offers an advanced tool menu for annotations, measurements and split-screen capability for live comparisons. Clinicians can share images and consult on-the-fly over their network or Internet through firmware, not software, without compromising the integrity of the hospital network.
