Nikon Instruments Europe B.V., innovator of advanced optical instruments, is honored to announce that the ECLIPSE Ti2 Inverted Research Microscope has been awarded the iF Design award. With its unprecedented 25mm field of view (FOV)—which is up to twice as wide as competitive systems—along with its improved stability and usability, the design of the ECLIPSE Ti2 has revolutionized how researchers capture data with a microscope.

The iF Design Award is a globally recognized and prestigious award which has been sponsored by the iF International Forum Design GmbH since 1953. This year, 5,575 entries from 59 countries were evaluated by renowned experts.


With an incredible 25 mm FOV, the ECLIPSE Ti2 maximizes the sensor area of large-format CMOS cameras and significantly improves data throughput. The Ti2’s exceptionally stable, drift-free platform is designed to meet the demands of super-resolution imaging, while its unique hardware-triggering capabilities enhance even the most challenging, high-speed imaging applications.

The Ti2 also offers intelligent functions to guide users through imaging workflows by gathering data from internal sensors – eliminating the possibility of user errors. The status of each sensor is automatically recorded during acquisition, providing quality control for imaging experiments and enhancing data reproducibility.
