Specular Microscope

The NIDEK CEM-530 is our fastest, easiest to use specular microscope on the market today. With NIDEK’s 3D auto tracking/auto shot, coupled with an analysis time of under two seconds. This combined with the solid NIDEK build quality and features adds up to real value, less downtime and better patient flow.

Key Features:

  • Paracentral specular microscopy
  • Two-second auto analysis
  • Automation optimal range indication
  • 3D auto tracking/auto shot
  • Center point manual analysis function
  • Additional features with CEM Viewer for NAVIS-EX

Paracentral Specular Micrscopy

ParacentralIn addition to conventional central and peripheral specular microscopy, the CEM-530 includes a unique function to capture paracentral images. The paracentral images are captured at eight points, 5º visual angle within a 0.25 mm x 0.55 mm field and enable enhanced assessment surrounding the central image.

Auto Indication of the Optimal Image

optimal-image16 images are captured and automatically sorted based on quality and the ability to be analyzed. The optimal image for analysis is indicated with orange highlight.

This feature aids the clinician in the selection of the most suitable image for analysis and enhances reliability of the data.

Two-second Auto Analysis

fast-analysisRapid analysis increases the efficiency of the practice. Once the image is selected, complete analysis is automatically performed in two seconds with the CEM-530.

The analysis screen allows visualization of the endothelial cells in four modes, trace, photo, area, and apex, which helps the clinician to verify analysis values with the correspondent cell images.

The CEM-530 provides comprehensive analysis including two histograms of variation in shape (pleomorphism) and size (polymegathism). For detailed analysis, the range of analysis can be changed and the cells to be excluded can be selected at the user’s discretion.

Center Point Manual Analysis Function


The center point manual analysis is initiated by selecting the approximate center of a cell. Adjoining cells are then detected based on the surrounding points. This method is particularly effective for areas where groups of cells are clumped together. The versatility of automated and manual analysis allows speed and precision.

xyz3-D Auto Tracking, Auto Shot, and Tiltable Touch Screen

The 3-D auto tracking, auto shot, and tiltable touch screen provide ease of use, allowing faster and more accurate measurement.

Instant Printout with Built-in Printer

The built-in printer provides an instant printout of the analyzed data and images of the endothelial cells.

LED Light Source for Flash

The CEM-530 utilizes a LED light source for flash, which reduces power consumption, lasts longer, and saves on operational costs.

Additional features with CEM Viewer for NAVIS-EX* (optional)

CEM Viewer is software used for viewing and working with CEM-530 data via NAVIS-EX. This function enhances the capability of the CEM-530 with additional features and increases the efficiency of any clinic.

*NAVIS-EX is optional software and is required for use of the CEM Viewer.

Data management and endothelial cell count

Unlimited NAVIS-EX database is available for review on the CEM Viewer. The basic functions of the CEM-530 such as endothelial cell count are available on the CEM Viewer.

Progression follow-up and comparison

Multiple examination data sets are displayed in chronological order for follow-up. Additionally, two data sets are displayed for comparison. Endothelial changes can be monitored over time with this function.

Paracentral display with peripheral

The images and analyses of the paracentral and peripheral areas are displayed providing a comprehensive image of endothelial cells.
