Nikon Europe B.V. Nikon is a leader in microscope-based optical and imaging technologies for the life sciences and part of the Nikon Healthcare Business Division. With over 100 years expertise in the field, Nikon has always been at the forefront of optical and technological innovation, promoting creativity and trustworthiness as part of the company's global mission statement. The Nikon story began back in 1917 when three Japanese optical manufacturers merged to form a company known as Nippon Kogaku KK ('Japan Optics'), producing precision optical glass. In 1925 the brand expanded to produce the first microscope with a revolving nosepiece and interchangeable objectives - the Joico microscope.

Today Nikon is a world-renowned brand, firmly established as a market leader in optical instrumentation and the only microscope company to manufacture its own glass, ensuring the very finest quality assurance throughout production. Nikon’s broad portfolio of microscope systems includes products for the educational, clinical, materials science, and research market as well as the biotech/pharma industry.
