Nikon’s Museum of Microscopy
( Circa 1966 )
The SMZ series are the flagship system of stereomicroscopes offered by Nikon beginning in 1966. Spanning over many decades, this classic series of scopes have ushered in a new generation of stereomicroscopy with cutting edge optics, longer zoom capabilities and lower signal-to-noise ratios than ever previously offered. The SMZ series also greatly expanded the different options of microscopes in the stereo class to meet a broad array of applications from basic student to higher end biomedical research as well as the relatively new field of micro imaging.
The SMZ series continues today with a variety of choices.
