The Eclipse LV-UDM Universal Design Microscope is a breakthrough universal microscope platform – able to meet the demands of the academic and industrial fields. With its newly designed turret condenser and motorized nosepiece, the LV-UDM is a unique multifunctional microscope that can be used in bioscience and material science applications without the need to change hardware.
Eclipse LV-UDM Series
Universal Condenser Lens
More Diascopic Features
Brightfield, darkfield, DIC, simple ol and phase contrast observation are all possible. Simply select the condenser position for the method you wish to use.
The Eclipse LV-UDM is currently available in two models: LV100D-U (manual) and the LV100DA-U (motorized). The LV100DA-U features a newly developed motorized nosepiece. In addition to brightfield and darkfield observation, the LV-NU5AI Universal Nosepiece enables a wide range of observation methods including episcopic and diascopic DIC. The LV-NCNT2 motorized nosepiece controller can be used in combination with the LV-NU5AI on the LV100D-U.
The LV series utilizes Nikon's world renowned CFI60 & CFI LU60 infinity optics to provide world-class optical performance, with the highest levels of resolution, contrast, and transmission and longer working distances. Clear, aberration-free images are the standard.
CFI Plan Fluor objectives have high transmission throughout the entire visible spectrum including applications that require IR and UV. These objectives can be used in all transmitted light applications including brightfield, darkfield, DIC, simple Pol and epifluorescence. They are designed for use with specimens using standard coverslips unlike the CFI LU Plan Fluor objectives, which are designed for uncovered or opaque materials. A number of these objectives have correction collars which can compensate for glass windows up to 2mm thick with long working distances for chamber applications.
CFI Plan Fluor DL/DLL lenses provide phase contrast observation. Phase Contrast allows for observation of transparent or low contrast materials such as plastics, fibers and emulsions. They can be used for other applications such as brightfield, fluorescence and DIC with very acceptable results. They are designed for use with coverslips.
CFI LU Plan Fluor lenses have high transmittance in the ultraviolet region, making them suitable for use with many methods including episcopic/diascopic brightfield, episcopic/diascopic darkfield (only BD objective lens for episcopic darkfield), episcopic DIC, simple polarization, and epifluorescent (visible/UV) observation. They are designed for use without a coverglass.
CFI POL Achromat lenses are strain-free and designed for quantitative transmitted polarized light applications. They are designed for use with coverslipped specimens.
CFI LU Plan EPI POL are strain-free and designed for quantitative reflected and transmitted polarized light applications with materials that have no coverslip.
The standard maximum specimen height is 38mm (33mm when combined with the LV-NU5AI nosepiece). Combined with a column riser, it is 73mm (or 68mm with the nosepiece), and with a combination of the LV-DIA-U DIA Base U and LV-FM FM module, specimens with a height up to 102mm (or 97mm) can be accommodated.
The motorized model LV100DA-U meets all requirements for digital imaging, analysis, Z stacks, Extended Depth of Focus (EDF) and archiving among others. Used in conjunction with the motorized universal episcopic illuminator LV-UEPI2A, digital cameras DS-Fi1 or DS-2Mv with control units DS-L2 or DS-U2, and NIS-Elements imaging software, observation methods and illumination conditions can be optimized for image capture. The LV100DA-U also supports external quantitative control, and data communication and control of the magnification information required for measurement functions and display of scale.
DS-Fi1: 5-megapixel high-definition color camera. The DS-Fi1 offers advanced performance, including a high dynamic range and superior red sensitivity, and is optimal for brightfield, darkfield, phase contrast, and DIC image capture.
Nikon's NIS-Elements series is used for the control software. This software allows the user to perform everything from basic image capture to the measurement, analysis, and management of captured images. Users can add a wide array of the plug-ins to basic packages according to their intended use.
In addition to the LV-S32 3x2 Stage, users can select a wide variety of stages according to their needs, including the LV-S64 6x4 Stage for larger specimens, or the LV-SRP Fine Rotating Stage for polarized light microscopy.
LV-S32 3x2 is a compact stage for industrial microscopes. Its triple-plate design ensures durability, stability and ease of use, even when heavy samples such as metallic materials are observed. The standard glass plate makes this stage suitable for episcopic and diascopic illumination.
Although the LV-LH50PC Precentered Lamphouse is 12V-50W, the brightness is equivalent to or higher than that of 12V-100W. The low power consumption halogen light source contributes to the compact design of the microscope while also being friendly to the environment. Defocus induced by heat is substantially reduced.
The use of the Nikon Intensilight precentered fiber illuminator eliminates the need for centering and focus adjustment, even after the lamp is replaced. Because the light source can be placed away from the microscope, heat and electrical noise to the microscope body is reduced. Six levels of light intensity from 3% to 100% are available, including a built-in shutter. The lamp lasts an average of 2,000 hours, reducing replacement frequency and cost. Both manual (C-HGFI) and motorized (C-HGFIE) models are available. The C-HGFIE should be used in combination with the LV100DA-U. The motorized model can be controlled from an optional dedicated remote controller or a PC with Nikon's NIS-Elements imaging software installed. It can also be controlled directly from the microscope itself.
