The ECLIPSE Ts2/Ts2R is a family of two microscopes with an unmistakable affiliation. A product that, due to its complexity, is very hard to design, has been implemented with amazing success. For designers it is a huge challenge to transfer this level of complexity into such a strong and clear design statement. Every detail is under control.
