Nikon Microscopes embody the philosophy of Nikon, which is the study of light. So it's no wonder that when you study a specimen through one of these great educational or laboratory microscopes by Nikon a great deal of new information will be brought to light. This focus on light is what makes Nikon so capable as an optics designer and manufacturer, as the transmission of light is essential to seeing as much detail as possible. The lenses on a Nikon Microscope are superbly clear to allow for maximum light transmission, which translates to a well defined image, which in turn allows for greater magnification without losing sharpness. When your job or grade depends on an accurate view, trust in Nikon Microscopes to give you the bright and clear image you need.
