Frequently asked questions

What is LV-MOD?

LV-MOD is a PC-controlled directional LED light source, providing remote control over illumination size, intensity, and position within the microscope’s field of view.

Who can benefit from using the LV-MOD?

This product is designed to enhance SMAL and SMAL-AIR imagery on Nikon Eclipse LV100ND and LV150N microscopes. It enables these microscopes to increase the image contrast and clarity with SMAL and SMAL AIR super resolution objective lenses. This not only increases image quality but also allows imaging of samples that may not have been possible previously. See here for example images.

Which microscopes are supported?

LV-MOD is compatible with Nikon Eclipse LV100ND and LV150N microscopes.

How is LV-MOD attached to the Eclipse microscope?

LV-MOD requires a double-port attached to the microscope. The LV-MOD attaches to the double port.

Which light sources should I consider?

LV-MOD has an in-built light source, so you do not need an additional illuminator. However, if you already have a standard lamp unit on the microscope, LV-MOD will work perfectly alongside it.

Does the LV-MOD change the resolution / magnification?

No. The SMAL and SMAL AIR objective lenses will retain their world-leading resolution and magnification. The LV-MOD will simply enhance the images from these lenses.

What do I need to know about SMAL and SMAL AIR?

Questions and Answers, as well as images and specification can be found on the product pages here and here.

Many of your images are stitched – can we stitch on the Nikon microscope?

Nikon LV100ND and LV150N offer modular options for stage control and stitching, however, this is not currently confirmed for SMAL and SMAL AIR lenses. We are working on developing this functionality in the future. Currently stitching large areas at optical super-resolution is only possible with SMAL and SMAL AIR on the Nanoro M.
