Optical Microscope

Nikon Eclipse TE2000U is an advanced inverted microscope used for variety of applications which require high precision e.g. live cell microscopy, flow visualization within microfluidic channels, for characterizing interfaces in the area of contact mechanics and so on and so forth.


The microscope has the facility for standard applications in phase contrast, dark-field andDIC. The microscope has a manual XY stage and motorized Z-focus with an accuracy of50nm. The motor can be operated using a remote control pad. The microscope has DIC &epi-fluorescence attachment for fluorescence microscopy. It has condenser with modulesfor phase contrast. Available filters are: day colour balance, heat absorbing, greeninterference and the fluorescence band-pass filter. The microscope has objectives withmagnifications: 4X, 10X, 20X and 40X. Many of these features can be further extended
