Product Summary

The MA100 is a new compact inverted microscope (metallograph) designed for the routine observation and analysis of prepped material and metallurgical samples in the automotive, aerospace, medical device and electronics industry. The small size footprint makes it an affordable instrument with outstanding optical performance, ideal for in-line sample inspection for the manufacturing, production and assembly environments that require quality control of materials.



Powerful NIS-Elements Imaging Software

Nikon's NIS-Elements Documentation imaging software package allows users to perform everything from basic image capture to the measurement, analysis, and management of captured images. Users can add a wide array of the plug-ins to basic packages according to their intended use.

Durable Stage

Nikon developed the all-new MA-SR Rectangular Stage especially for the MA100. The three-plate structure gives the microscope stable control and superior durability and enables observation of heavy samples, including embedded samples that are still mounted on a grinder's holder.

CFI60 Optical System

Nikon's proprietary CFI60 optics provide high NA and a longer working distance. CFI60 optics deliver bright, high-resolution images. Up to five objective lenses can be mounted.

Aperture Diaphram

The epi illuminator comes standard with a condenser which enables users to control image contrast and depth of field of the sample.

Adjustable Mirror

The Eclipse MA100 ships complete with a mirror for checking objective lenses, which makes observation much more efficient. Now users can verify what objective lens is being used as well as the observation position of the sample in a comfortable position, without having to look beneath the stage.


This device makes possible simple polarizing observation, which is effective for samples such as polymer materials. It takes just a single action to engage the polarizer and analyzer in the light path. The polarizer can rotate 360°, allowing users to set a polarization direction suited to the sample being observed.

Integration with Digital Sight Camera System

Nikon Digital Sight cameras are versatile, high-resolution digital systems that enable various configurations consisting of a camera head and a control unit to suit the needs of each sample or application.
