Motic SMZ-168 Stereo Microscopes

The SMZ168 Stereo Zoom microscope represents the top-of-the-line model in Motic’s successful SMZ Series of stereo microscopes. Designed for a wide range of biological and material science applications, the SMZ168’s optical quality and versatile accessories will satisfy the most demanding user applications in both routine and research fields. From industrial quality control to biological preparation work, the SMZ168 is a durable workhorse model ready for a variety of applications.

Its Greenough optical system comes with a large zoom range of 6.7:1, parfocal at all magnifications. Its 5-position click-stop magnification mechanism, implemented into the continuous zoom, enables precise reproduction of magnifications, thus simplifying measurements.

An impressive 3-dimensional upright image, combined with an industry leading working distance of 113mm in its standard configuration, allows easy manipulation of the sample. Further, the SMZ168 can convert easily into a complete documentation station by combining it with a member of the Moticam camera series.

SMZ-168 Series

Versatile stereomicroscope solution for complex applications.

Modern stereomicroscope applications require a high-definition image, often with specialized imaging or contrast requirements, without giving up the flexibility to perform routine tasks as needed. The SMZ-168 stereomicroscope provides a versatile, durable stereomicroscope with a large number of customization and upgrade possibilities. The rugged Greenough zoom lens configuration provides a powerful 6.7:1 zoom ratio giving a total magnification of 7.5x - 50x while still providing longevity in the harsh environments encountered in lab and industrial settings. Addition of available auxiliary lenses and/or eyepieces allows expansion of the magnification range up to 320x with a maximum possible working distance of 324mm.

Available accessories further enhance the versatility of the SMZ-168 stereomicroscope. Attachments for performing polarization and darkfield microscopy are easily added to the SMZ-168 stereomicroscope while a selection of stands, lighting options, and articulating boom stands enable the SMZ-168 to fit seamlessly into your workflow. Addition of a Moticam microscope camera enables the SMZ-168 stereomicroscope to become a complete documentation workstation.
