Motic SMZ171

“Flexible Stereo Microscope Solution”

With the new SMZ-171 Stereo Zoom microscope Motic proudly introduces an optically improved addition to its well-established SMZ Stereo series. New materials for ESD compatibility as well as optimized LED illumination options have been added to this series to create a  versatile Stereo microscope platform for a wide range of biological and material science applications. The SMZ-171’s optical performance, combined with its expanded accessory line, make it an ideal instrument for the demanding requirements for both routine and research fields. 

From biological and medical preparations to industrial quality control and inspection, the SMZ-171 will deliver repeatedly clear and distortion-free images. The Greenough optical system comes with a large-scale zoom range of 6.7:1, parfocal at all magnifications; while a 5-position click-stop mechanism, implemented in the continuous zoom, enables precise reproduction of magnifications for easy measurements. 

The working distance of 110mm in its standard configuration gives sufficient space for any kind of sample viewing and manipulation. Also, an enhanced and crisp depth-of-view produces consistent and convincing 3-dimensional upright images. Further, the SMZ-171 can convert easily into a complete documentation station by combining it with a member of the Moticam camera family.
