This system has a parallel optical path into which various intermediate tubes, including a beam splitter, coaxial episcopic illuminator, epi-fluorescence attachment, teaching head, drawing tube and eye-level riser, can be inserted.
ICOE has developed a stereo microscope model SZ1800 that features a large zoom ratio 18:1, high resolution and exceptional fluorescence transmission capability. These models meet the increasing needs for imaging systems that span spatial scales from single cells to whole organisms.
Bright, high-contrast fluorescent images
Fly-eye lens ensures uniform brightness over the entire filed of view even at the lowest magnification
Breakthroughs in optical design mean significantly improved signal to noise ratio and crystal clear fluorescent images
Easy to use
Easy-to-operate slim LED DIA base with OCC illumination
Wide range of illuminators and accessories that accommodate a variety of observation methods
– Features –
SZ1800 come with a LED DIA base with a built-in OCC illuminaton
The LED DIA Base with a built-in OCC illuminator generates minimal heat, consumes little power and is long-life. This illuminator can enhance the contrast of uneven surfaces, such as that of an embryo.
What is OCC illumination?
The acronym OCC stands for oblique coherent contrast (OCC), which is a form of oblique lighting method. Compared to conventional diascopic illumination that illuminates directly from below, OCC illumination applies coherent light to samples in a diagonal direction, giving contrast to colorless and transparent sample structures.
The OCC illuminator can be controlled using a slide lever. Thanks to scales on the slide lever, the user can save and reproduce desired illumination levels. In addition, an OCC plate can be inserted into the illumination unit from the front and rear sides, so images with different shadow direction can be observed.
– SZ1800’s Accessories –
ICOE has improved ease of use by moving the controls to the front of the base, including the brightness adjustment dial and the on/off switch.
Fiber DIA base
The Fiber DIA base features condenser lenses that can be switched between low and high magnifications. Furthermore, the OCC illumination system allows high-contrast illumination.
The slimmer LED DIA base and Plain base help increase efficiency of sample manipulation by bringing the level of the sample closer to the table.
Plan Apo Objective Series
The Plan Apo series features higher NA, wider field of view ad superior flatness and color aberration correction. These objective lenses can be seamlessly switched because all magnifications have the same parfocal distance. The bayonet mount design allows lenses to be safely and easily removed.
Plan Apo 0.5x
Plan Apo 1x
Plan Apo 1.6x
Plan Apo 2x
3mm water depth
There are one type of low eyelevel trinocular head and two types of tilting trinocular head available for optional, all heads have a camera port for seamless integration with digital camera series.
The stage features an XY stroke 150mmx100mm and can be attached to any of the bases, making it effective for capturing large images when used in combination with image software.
Darkfield Observation Accessory
Darkfiled viewing is possible simply by attaching the darkfield unit to the base.

Fiber Illuminator Set
Flexible Double Arm Fiber Illumination Set
The direction and angle of illumination can be changed to suit the sample by making adjustments with these double arms. The fiber holder position can also be changed to obtain the optimal position for illuminating samples.
Ring Fiber Illumination Set
This ring fiber illumination set features an episcopic illumination unit that effectively captures images (can be used with 1x and 0.5x objective lenses).
The coaxial light illuminator makes it possible to view light reflected from the surface of a smaple. It is ideal for shooting shadow-less images of thick samples.
1). Coaxial Epi-illuminator
2). LED light source for fiber illuminator
3). 1x/0.5x 1/4 λ plate
Ring LED Illuminator
Ring LED illuminator is equipped with high-intensity, long-life (20,000 hours) LEDs. The illuminator’s dial adjusts the intensity of the white LED.
