Flexible Stereo Microscope Solution

With the new SMZ171 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 SMZ171’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 SMZ171 will deliver repeatedly clear and distortion-free images. Further, the SMZ171 can convert easily into a complete documentation station by combining it with a camera.
