(http://www.nikoninstruments.com) today announced a partnership with the Marian Koshland Science Museum and the National Academy of Sciences to place a Coolscope Microscope in the museum's first-ever "Microbe Lab." In the "Microbe Lab," visitors have the unique opportunity to use a state-of-the-art piece of scientific equipment that has not previously been available outside of a laboratory setting. The "Microbe Lab" is a new enhancement to the Infectious Disease: Evolving Challenges to Human Health exhibit at the museum, where visitors can use the microscope to take a first-hand look at harmful and helpful bacteria.

"Through our partnership with the Marian Koshland Science Museum, we are able to provide visitors with an experience that will spark scientific curiosity and learning. As a global leader in providing complete, technologically advanced scientific systems, Nikon is excited about programs like this that allow visitors to not only view the scientific world close-up but also interact with scientific equipment," said Eric Flem, communications manager, Nikon Instruments, Inc. "The Coolscope will provide visitors an unprecedented level of sophistication to view the microscopic world."

"We appreciate Nikon providing us with the Coolscope, without which the Microbe Lab would not be possible," said Patrice Legro, museum director.
