Nikon Ts2


Nikon Ts2 Microscope, the new compact inverted routine microscope that does more than ever before!

Utilizing Nikon’s industry-leading CFI60 optical system and LED illumination for both diascopic and epi-fluorescence imaging, the new Eclipse TS2 microscope offers brilliantly clear images, enabling more efficient cell culture observation and documentation. Furthermore, a newly developed contrast observation method and streamlined operation enhance its use for routine laboratory work.

Compact, Streamlined Body for Efficient Observation

Two models are available to meet your needs; a diascopic illumination model, the Eclipse Ts2, and an epi-fluorescence illumination model, the Eclipse Ts2-FL.

The compact, stable and durable body on both models conserves precious bench space and easily fits next to the incubator or inside a tissue culture hood.

Better Observation with LED Illuminator

The new Eclipse TS2 microscope provides LED-based diascopic and epi-fluorescence illumination. LED illumination eliminates frequent bulb replacement and alignment and requires no warm-up time allowing for quick and efficient cell culture observation.


Streamlined Operation

Buttons for turning light sources on/off and switching between diascopic and epi-fluorescence observation are located within easy reach, at the front of the microscope body, enabling intuitive operation of these functions during sample imaging. The ECLIPSE Ts2-FL model provides separate zones for controlling diascopic and episcopic illumination with diascopic controls located on the left side and epi-fluorescence controls on the right side of the main body.

New mechanical stage accommodates a wide range of flasks and cell culture chambers. The new stage design also directly accommodates 96-well plates.

New Contrasting Technique, “Emboss Contrast” for Economical and Easy Observation

Newly developed Emboss Contrast is cost-effective and provides easy observation with simple operation. Emboss contrast provides pseudo-three dimensional, high-contrast images and is suitable even for thick samples such as iPS cells which are normally difficult to observe with conventional phase-contrast methods. Additionally, Emboss Contrast is compatible with both glass and plastic culture chambers.

New Contrast Shield for High S/N Epi-Florescence Observation in Bright Rooms


The new Contrast Shield accessory (optional) blocks room light, providing an easy and cost-effective method for achieving high signal-to-noise fluorescence observation in a typical, brightly lit culture room.
