The Eclipse 90i, an addition to Nikon's i-series of microscopes, is an automated biological research tool optimised for digital image capture.

When used in combination with Nikon's Digital Sight series digital cameras or C1 system the 90i is an automated microscopy/imaging system.

A modular design and motorised attachments and accessories enable the 90i to be adapted to all multi-dimensional imaging techniques including fluorescence, time-lapse, DIC, confocal, FLIM or FRET.

When capturing images the 90i records all microscope settings such as magnification, aperture and z positioning which are attached to the image file enabling workers to reproduce imaging settings for future observations. Captured images can be transferred to a PC.

The DIH-E digital imaging head has been designed specifically for automated image capture with motorised optical path switches, epi-fluorescence filter, cube-switching, excitation light shutter, epi-fluorescence field diaphragm, optical zoom and analyser.

It also combines Hi S/N universal epi-fluorescence illuminator, binocular tube, dual imaging ports and optical zoom in a single unit producing brighter, higher contrast fluorescence images.

The instrument has all the features common to all i-series microscopes, including Nikon's CFI60 Plan Apo VC series of objectives and 'fly-eye' lens array providing an even intensity of light satisfying the requirements for compatibility with digital cameras.

A fluorescence epi-illuminator with six-position turret using the Hi S/N noise terminator improves signal-to-noise ratios, providing bright, high-contrast, crisp fluorescent images.
