Inverted Metallographic Microscope


Introducing a durable, user-friendly microscope with a small footprint, superior image quality and great cost performance

The ECLIPSE MA100 is a compact-size inverted microscope specially designed for reflected illumination. This instrument was developed for brightfield observation and simple polarizing observation. Thanks to its compact, durable design and simple operation in addition to its high-contrast observation and image capture, it is excellent for metallographic and electronic components as well as use at product sites in the materials field and quality control departments.



A newly developed stage boasting superior durability and stable control even with heavy samples

Nikon developed the all-new MA-SR Rectangular Stage especially for the MA100. The three-plate structure gives the microscope stable control and superior durability and enables observation of heavy samples, including embedded samples that are still mounted on a grinder's holder.

Sharp, clear images using CFI60 optics

Nikon's proprietary CFI60 optics provide high NA and a longer working distance. CFI60 optics deliver bright, high-resolution images. Up to five objective lenses can be mounted.

Aperture Diaphragm

Comes standard with a condenser

The epi illuminator comes standard with a condenser that enables users to control image contrast and depth of field of the sample.

Identifies objective magnification at a glance with an adjustable mirror

The ECLIPSE MA100 ships complete with a mirror for checking objective lenses, which makes observation much more efficient. Now users can verify what objective lens is being used as well as the observation position of the sample in a comfortable position, without having to look beneath the stage.


Simple polarization observation with a single-action polarizer/analyzer mechanism

This device makes simple polarizing observation possible, which is effective for samples such as polymer materials. It takes just a single action to engage the polarizer and analyzer in the light path. The polarizer can rotate 360 degrees, allowing users to set a polarization direction suited to the sample being observed.
