Nikon Intros Portable Digital Microscope
Digital handheld microscope.
Brighton, MI — Nikon Metrology, Inc. has introduced its new ShuttlePix P-400R Digital Microscope, made for inspection, observation, simple measurement and recording of high-resolution images. It serves as a handheld microscope for on-site analysis of samples, that shoots high-resolution images as quickly and easily as taking pictures with a digital camera.

For stationary use, the ShuttlePix microscope interfaces seamlessly with a motorized stand. Using the provided 17-in. (432mm) touchscreen monitor, the user can easily control, display, measure or print images. The microscope also connects to a standard PC or laptop running dedicated 3D image reconstruction software (included at no cost with the package).

The ShuttlePix addresses the market need for an easy-to-use device that magnifies samples and can record and save images as digital files. The instrument combines its technological excellence in optical technology with the company's expertise in digital image processing technology to enable the creation of the ShuttlePix. The stand is equipped with a motorized Z, which does not require a PC for control. Operation of the stand is simple, allowing extended depth of focus (EDF) image capture with the touch of a button. The instrument offers a 20x zoom with a magnification range of 20 to 400x on a 17-in. monitor, which is double that of competitive models. For optimal lighting, the zoom head has built-in 4 section LED ring illumination, offering several lighting configurations.
