The Photonic LED Ring & spot illumination systems are also very popular for electronics & general microscopy illumination applications including asbestos analysis, life sciences, marine biology microscopy, food research, geology & palaeontology.

Recent diverse SMZ 168 customer applications include: - Motic SMZ 168 microscope with digital camera & image analysis software system purchased by Dr Tim Nowell @ QinetiQ, Farnborough for aerospace lubrication wear debris analysis.

A number of entomologist microscopy enthusiasts & professional’s have purchased the Motic SMZ 168 zoom microscope from the GDC microscopes partnership. High performance optics, extended optical zoom range of 7.5x – 50x with 10x eyepieces, compact design & build quality are all present in the Motic SMZ 168. The competitive GDC microscopes price & 5 year RTS factory warranty are all features valued by our customers.

The Moticam 1000 digital microscope camera kit is also popular for use with stereo entomology microscopes used for identification & documentation of insect genitalia. You may be surprised to hear of an entomologist’s interest in insect genitalia, but we are reliably informed that this is often the only feature that correctly identifies different bug, moth & butterfly species. Local council pest control microscopy departments have also purchased Motic digital microscope systems for bug identification / investigation. Asbestos analysis is another area where SMZ series stereo zoom microscopes will aid identification & counting of asbestos fibre analysis through the microscope. These are just a few examples of the many diverse applications where Motic microscopes are in daily use making our small world of optical microscopy such an interesting experience.
